Review: Continuing their streak of delivering musical treasures from the acclaimed "Crazy P Curates" compilation, 20/20 Vision Recordings introduces another standout piece. This time, it's the collaboration of UK DJ/producer Rose Robinson, known as Tigerbalm, reuniting with vocalist Joy Tyson. In "Cosmic Union," Tigerbalm skillfully guides us through an exploration of Afrocentric rhythms infused with the vibrant spirit of Brazilian funk and global influences. The result is a captivating journey that takes familiar elements and propels them into a fresh, exciting journey.
Review: UK DJ/producer Rose Robinson's third EP finds her teaming up once more with vocalist Joy Tyson (who sang on 'Love' from the earlier 'Jungle Express' EP), while remix duties are taken care of by Brazilian artist and recent album debutante Guinu, working alongside Tee Cardaci, a US producer based in Rio De Janeiro. Their Remix of 'Kete' is a mellow, midtempo but still pleasingly substantial offering sitting somewhere between bruk beat and Balearica, while their Instrumental, far from simply ditching the vocal, adds intricate percussion and FX to create an almost claustrophically dense cut that matches Robinson's self-described "deep tropical sound" remit perfectly.
