22a/Eglo alumni, Henry Wu and Jamal Banton complement each other with every spacious, measured groove. The power is evident from the supreme jazz funk of «T-Slap Biz» — show us a body that isn’t popping when this drops and you’re playing the wrong parties. «2011» techs us up to a notch with an UR style pace and trippiness while «Natural» is 100% 22a soul, all loose limbed, warm, harmonic and fuzzy. «Dutty Dubz» tips a nod to the deep foundations of Dego and Marc Mac with its jazzy breakbeat introspection and «Street Brukka» brings us home with woozy far-away trumpets, shuffling swinging drums and chord washes that are up there with Iz & Diz’s legendary «Mouth.» Stunning.
