Zo! & Tall Black Guy makes a return with a brand new anthology collaboration. We see a move away from their banded sounds of premium Neo Soul, R&B, Hip-Hop and phat beats. To a evolved translations of their collective skills. The multi-instrumentalist and hip-hop producer employed a host of talent for this project. Sy Smith, Omar, Darien Brockington, Muhsinah, Phonte and more. This musical odyssey delves into a mixture of genres from Soulful House, Afro Beat, Hip-Hop, Spoken Word, Soul & R&B.
My stand out tracks are 'The Ride' a full fat funk with silky silk vocal from the delicious Sy Smith and spit verses by Black Milk & Elzhi. Finished with vocoder riffs Handcock/Troutman would be proud off. 'I Love The Way' is a smelly mid afro jam featuring one of our favorite export Omar with his distinctive signature vocals. 'Blackout' is atmospheric house at its best. Is disco dead? Nah bruv! just listen to 'Connected' this Neo Retroesque disco joint is a 6.50 minute dance floor stomper. Vocals are provided by Josh Milan. Zo! fans and TBG fans be not troubled, because as fans you will still remain. Abstractions I love it. - Junior Nathaniel Small
