Lack of Afro - Back In Business (feat. Wax & Herbal T)

Multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer Adam Gibbons (aka Lack of Afro) first saw Wax & Herbal T back in 2009 after being sent a video of them in their car freestyling over his cover of the Arctic Monkeys track ‘When The Sun Goes Down’. Blown away by their incredible wordplay & lyrical dexterity, he immediately contacted the brothers about guesting on his next album, ‘My Groove Your Move’, released in 2009. Luckily for him they said yes…

Fast forward 8 years and collectively they have appeared on 6 Lack of Afro originals including the monster hit‘P.A.R.T.Y’ (licensed by Adidas, Miller Lite, ABC and Fox to name but a few), whilst Adam has returned the favour by producing 6 originals for their own solo projects, with combined YouTube views totalling in excess of10 million.
Wax & Herbal T are twin brothers that rap and write/produce music. In 2006 they released their breakthrough album, ‘Grizzly Season’.
As a solo artist, Wax has released 3 solo albums, 2 mixtapes and several collaborative projects with other musicians. He was signed to Def Jam Records for a stint between 2010 & 2012 and now releases his music through his own label Scrublife. Herbal T released his solo album ‘Lo-Fi Blow Dry’ in 2014 to widespread critical acclaim.

The tracks that we will play tomorrow  on our Radioshow 10-11-2017 is : 

Kicking things off here is the irresistibly catchy title track ‘Back In Business’ – a funk-soaked tour de force of live musicianship, huge drums and a chorus that will stay in your head for weeks!

‘Ride’ is reminiscent of hazy 70’s west coast radio – underpinned with a groove to make your head snap and combined with Wax’s wistful vocals, it’s the obvious soundtrack for your next road trip.

‘Cold Blooded’ ends on a high note and sees the borthers go in hard from the outset - their ferociously quick & aggressive wordplay perfectly complimenting Lack of Afro’s savagely funky instrumental. To call it ‘big’ would be an understatement!

Dalindeo - One more Devil
Helsinki, Finland
Dalindèo is a Finnish jazz-sextet founded and led by composer/guitarist Valtteri Laurell Pöyhönen in
2003. Their music is a cinematic jazz creation reminiscient of the ambience of movies by Finnish great Aki Kaurismäki mixed with a Tarantinoesque vibe of danger and suspense.

Our favourite Finnish jazz sextet Dalindèo are back with “One More Devil”, a fiery five track EP released on BBE Music. Referencing and providing a sequel for “Another Devil”, a track that appeared on their 2010 album ‘Soundtrack for the Sound Eye’, “One More Devil” captures a well-rehearsed and highly original live band in full flow. As bandleader and guitarist Valtteri Laurell Pöyhönen puts it: “During the last years we’ve been focusing heavily on the live-energy and jazz mayhem we can create and here is a spontaneous studio-rendition of that energy.”

With both the EP’s potent title track and its smooth closer ‘Daydreaming’ written only days before being committed live to tape, “One More Devil” has a palpable sense of freshness throughout. Originally performed by Olavi Virta, the “King of Finnish Tango”, Dalindèo’s distinctive version of ‘Oh What You Do To Me’ really wouldn’t go amiss in a classic Tarantino movie. Sitting at the EP’s mid-point, ‘Sicilian March’ is both dramatic and teasingly short, getting its cinematic, soldierly point across in under two minutes. ‘Funeral Party’ is a fast-paced and frenetic retro jazz workout in which all six exceptional players get a chance to shine.

Containing the band’s first foray into the world of the cover version and with founder Valtteri Laurell Pöyhönen’s composing, arranging and guitar playing skills sharper than ever before, Dalindèo make the prospect of entertaining “One More Devil” a compelling one.
