JOSDA DAN - Mess_Age (Falling A)
To go completely the other way, Josda Dan presents us with a four track EP of soul/R'n'B that takes in ambient sounds and Sly Stone funk and mixes them up to produce something all his own. The female backing vocals on 'Instant Access' bring to mind Kelis, and the more uptempo 'This Is Nice' sounds like it could have come from the N.E.R.D. stable. Sly comes to the fore on 'Touch The Sky' with an effective falsetto vocal, and 'Where's The Way' is another funk-laden gem. Although this sort of music is not the sort of thing that I usually listen to, I can hear that these four tracks are well-produced examples of the genre, and that Josda Dan could be a name to watch out for in the future.
