"Taking a break from the grind of New York City, beatmaker David Last found himself living for a few weeks near a beach in Sydney, Australia.Having spent two years making club music almost exclusively, he was ready to lay back into the influence of dancehall reggae's slower tempos. Vocals were a natural choice. For several years now, Zulu's unique dancehall vocals have been heard in collaboration with the likes of Ghislain Poirier, Kool Keith, and DJ C. A referral from grime-bounce mashup king DJ C led to an email exchange between Zulu in Chicago, and David in Sydney. In 14 hours, David Last and Zulu had completed their first track via email. The track was good enough that there was only one thing to do... make a whole album. The sound is distinctly international, funk without borders. It is influenced by both electronica and by reggae music, but it is officially neither. It feels like pop, but it blazes new ground in its rhythms and arrangements." (label info)
