About this item
New Dego & The 2000 Black Family here with a much anticipated EP on Neroli. "The Way It Should Be" should instantly remind anyone over the age of 28 what much of the UK's backrooms and dancefloors sounded like around 2004. Funky, soulful, vibrant and bouncing, with an emphasis on musicality and great hooks; a contrast, some might say, to the technicoloured, spectrum-busting futurism that seems to be currently in-vogue across the UK dance elite. "Spiritual Reconnaissance" sees some authentic and fresh broken beat vibes dished out by one of the OG innovators. Jazzy-flecked, warm and swirling, it should prove to any recent converts of Yussef Kamal, Tenderlonious or Henry Wu that London's been doin' this ting for some time, and pretty much rules the roost! Finally, "The Way It Should Be" is presented in dub form, just in case you weren't impressed with the killer vocal performance.
Matt says: The first Dego releases on Neroli are now well gone and highly sought after units... I see no reason why this won't follow suit. Excellently soulful house and broken beat here from one of London's top players.
