Next Impressions [coll] – [Concrete Grooves]
Chris ‘Presto? Douglas and Charles ‘Web? Yao are the force behind the Concrete Grooves label. This is the follow up compilation to ‘Impressions on Concrete? called ‘Next Impressions.’
This CD contains 17 tracks of soulful, jazz-influenced hip-hop grooves, most of them instrumental. A few of the instrumentals could be mistaken for a Ninja Tune release. But this music lies somewhere between hip hop and downtempo.
I got into all of the tracks, but the highlight is the cover of A Roller Skate Jam called Saturday (De La Soul) that Trinity starts her show with.
The music would work well as beds or transitions to/from soul, jazz, hip-hop, just about anywhere, in fact.
