Detroit's Todd Modes is one half of the Cosmic Handshakes duo but he goes it alone for this fine four tracker on Going Good. His brand of house is an expansive one that looks to the cosmos for inspiration. 'Serpent' is richly percussive, with sci-fi motifs and nebulous pads drifting over a groove that has a fine funk bass riff underlining it. Gentle sax sounds and spiritual chords make 'Rain Rituals' a real classic and 'Time Layers' builds tempting disco loops, low slung bass and hip swinging claps into a subtle party starter. Closer 'Shedding Skin' is steamy late night deep house with real meaning.
