On his debut full-length, Fool, unclassifiable Dutch producer Jameszoo (Mitchel van Dinther) embraces naïveté, ignoring boundaries and resisting musical conventions in favor of following his own creative impulses. The album is a playful amalgamation of influences ranging from outer-space jazz-funk to Brazilian rhythms, painstakingly crafted to sound spontaneous and unpredictable. While Jameszoo's previous EPs offered a wonderfully broken, loose perspective on abstract beatmaking, Fool incorporates more live instrumentation than his prior works, showcasing van Dinther's progress as a composer and bandleader. Squirming, whistling synths will collide with contemplative piano chords, and at any given moment the skeletal rhythm could break down and transform into something else. It takes a few listens for the album to really make sense, but it eventually reveals itself to be highly thoughtful, original, and creative.

Known as Jameszoo, Dutch producer Mitchel Van Dinther's Fool began life as just a simple debut album, but soon grew into something more audacious. The primary inspiration behind the album was human limitation and our struggles to achieve, which, while depressing on the surface, provided Van Dinther with the necessary burst of inspiration to create work that is both personal and relatable. Across its 11 tracks, Fool plays out Van Dinther's journey to find a musical voice he can be proud of and which can also inspire others. Alongside Verocai, Dafe, and Kuhn, the album features a stellar cast of classical and jazz musicians including pianist Niels Broos, drummers Julian Sartorius and Richard Spaven, bass guitarists Raphael Vanoli and Stephen Bruner (aka Thundercat), and saxophonist John Dikeman. All of these different contributions and approaches are weaved together into a whole by Van Dinther, armed with electronics and naivety. At times coherent, at times seemingly haphazard, the album is always joyful.
