After a brief hiatus Komplex De Deep and its chief protagonist Master-H make a welcome return together to present the label's twenty second release.
In his very own words, "this is a new me", H is now ready to unveil new music having been holed away in the studio for months on end mastering an array of new hardware and analog processes. The French producer is also challenging himself with the recording, locking down each individual track live and in one take. An art that was practiced by many of the Jazz greats in their heyday and one that has also influenced the title of the new release - 'Soul Take'.
As with all Master-H productions we are drawn to the detail and emotion. 'Somba People' with its inviting tribal rhythm pairs traditional African song with a warm and enveloping blanket of strings, handclaps and bass. The title track ramps things up with its bobbing drums, stabbing synth and echoing cowbell. One take and plenty of soul.
