Succulent - Natural Progression
First released on 12" vinyl back in January 2002, 'Natural Progression' by Succulent (aka Nectar and Sean Kamano) comes complete with a Solomonic Sound re-blessing.
Succulent is the joint effort of LA area’s Nectar and DJ Sean Kamano. They have collectively released on Worship and Grayhound Recordings in the past year. Expect a lot more quality West Coast sounds from this duo in 2002.
Side A’s ‘Chin Up’ begins with a chugging big room drum loop that breaks into a dubbed out roller for the big room. Sprinkled with ragga influenced keys, this will please variety of ears with its big room stomp and dub-wise appeal. Next up is some massive dubbed out tribal business with a ‘Ital Progression’, a rumbling sub-bassline spaced out synth stabs and heavily delayed patois sample makes this a perfect late night selection.
The B-Side kicks off with ‘Freshly’ - stabby pads engulf this track laden with rolling percussion, monster dub bass work and a filtered and delayed rasta exclamation. Moving yet deep and headstrong.
Finally, we have Solomonic Sound (Rob Paine and Zack Eberz) with a remix of ‘Freshly’. ‘Freshly Solomonic’ is a top-notch dubbed out tech house stormer built to burn up the dancefloor. A huge rolling bassline and intricate synth stabs fill the track with the signature Solomonic brand of reggae house fusion.
