Every year produces a dance band who cross over into the mainstream and then become pleasingly ubiquitous for a few months. Basement Jaxx and Daft Punk are past examples, and 2003 could well be Sheffield duo Grandadbob's year.
Mmmnn starts off with some whispy keyboard chords reminiscent of Air before an elastic bass kicks in. Vanessa Robinson's breathy vocals lend a seriously sexy, sleazy air to proceedings meaning that Mmmnn is one of those rare dance records that sound equally at home in the bedroom as on the dancefloor.
Comparisons with fellow Steel City inhabitants Moloko are perhaps inevitable, but Grandadbob are set to be winning over a few hearts in their own right pretty soon.
