Håkan Lidbo - Natty Roots EP
Originally released on December 27th 2000, the stunning 'Natty Roots EP by Swedish producer Håkan Lidbo features a re-blessing by Solomonic Sound.
Blessings. By now, everyone should know at least one Håkan Lidbo tune that has caught their ear and pocket these past few years. Having recorded tracks for Loaded, Paper, Moody & Fiji Recordings to name just a few, Håkan has blessed our camp with a special dub influenced tech house EP that he ever so carefully crafted for our label.
"Natty Roots” begins the journey with a rub-a-dub stylee deep tech house chune that runs a tweeked out ragga muffin vocal over a chunky drum track with snappy fills that will break your neck, it’s so tight.
The bass that rolls off of "Dirty Politician” from the
beginning is a driving force that eventually builds into a surprisingly melodic trance of
mystic dub for the dance floor. A title appropriate for our current situation in the good ol U.S. of Babylon A.
"Trinity” falls into the same realm as “Natty Roots” using a DJ style vocal that speaks of the suppression and violence that rings out everyday in this world’s ghettoes.
Solomonic Sound finds meaning in the “Trinity” and re-blesses it with love and guidance with a more elaborate and moody approach. Taking blurbs here and there from the vocal, Solomonic builds a new tune with a live repeater drum line and a skank that floats in and out of phase counteracting other various percussion swoops that are brought all together with signature Solomonic bass lines. One Love…
