Back in 2003, the Cheebacabra burst onto the scene with funkified jams that earned praise from KCRW to Filter Mag’s top albums of the year. Now Cheeba is back with another grooving, laid back album and his very own label, Macrosoft. Exile in the Woods is a snythed out version of a funk album that features collaborators/ producers ranging from Money Mark to Peter Scherr of the Hong Kong Philharmonic.

All the synths on Exile definitely conjure up references to old 80s/early 90s electro groups. Somewhere between Kraftwerk and Art of Noise but with a bit more soul (or a futuristic soundtrack and a stoner’s dream album). On the overall, this instrumental disk is just good background music. It’s nothing ground breaking, just good, chill jams.
