The world did not mean well for Daniel Saxon Judd. Or at least the British daily newspaper The Guardian did. There, a music critic wrote of Sorcerer’s sound that Judd’s inability to execute a brilliant idea was driving listeners to frustrated madness. That was more than ten years ago now. And here’s where the world comes in again: since then, Judd has been denied greater notoriety. Even for the all-encompassing sound he makes. Yet the accusation wasn’t true then or now. On his new album »Kids World« eight instrumental tracks gather between surf, funk, kraut rock, pop and disco. Everything relaxed and reclined. Sometimes with guitar as in »Spray Paint«, sometimes with more intrusive synthesizers as in »Disco Drums«. What makes »Kids World« an unusual, even extraordinary record: Judd really allows every influence. Rave and reggae can be found in various tracks as clocks. “Crunchy” works house and dub into a haunting groove. Everything always ethereally implemented and therefore sometimes not tangible at first hearing. But the US American from El Cerrito, California, has not implemented one brilliant idea on this album, but eight pieces at once. »Kids World« is a record dreaming away full of inspiration. That sound that should be playing at every summer sunset. All the beats, all the guitar strums sparkle and glisten. Judd is an artist who just does what he feels like doing. Which is why »Kids World« sounds like the ocean. Free and endlessly wide. Daniel Saxon Judd means well with the world.
