More far-reaching musical meditation from house music’s high priest.

Between the deep piano-house poetry of opener Unspoken and percussive jazz slink of closing joint People First lies a multitude of similarly mellow, similarly first-rate grooves tied to the genres of disco (the swinging thump of "Cosmic Signs" stands out), funk and tribal house. Loosely tied, of course, for such is Osunlade’s soulful wide-ranging vision "Dedication" represents an EP for all danceable eras and ages. Expansive.
