Slow Your Roll

Time Machine
Timely reish of a long-disappeared 2004 corker from this LA three-piece: think the terpsichorean twistedness of a Pharcyde combined with the thoughtful darkness of the criminally forgotten second Dream Warriors album ‘Subliminal Simulation’. Unlike so many of the West Coast’s noughties retronauts ‘Slow Your Roll’ doesn’t just retrieve old motifs (like say Ugly Duckling and Jurassic 5 did), it takes on the spirit of late '80s/early '90s Native-Tongues hip-hop and finds its own supremely wobbly way of walking forth. Boy howdy it immediately.
