Beauty & The Beat
A little late to the party on this, but what a great record. The standout cut is the London based Kay Suzuki mix of ‘Sortes, Les Filles!’ which melds delicate Senegal talking drums against a slinky electronic counterpoint. Vocalist Wolof adds the rhythmic Afro chant resulting in a perfect hybrid. Flip to the title-track ‘My People’ and you have a premium slice of Balearic heaven. Based on a smoother more recognisable structure it packs the texture, sights and sounds of the White Isle with precision. Echoes of early Lindstrom & Thomas prevail. Great artwork too.
