Tokalosh – For the Listeners (Soul Deep Recordings)
Posted by Adam on 15th September 2014
Is the beautiful city of York the first place you’d think of finding your new favourite drum & bass artist? Rethink your stereotypes of Medieval northern cities because Tokalosh has made it all the way to Soul Deep with his stunning “For The Listeners” three-track release. From the outset it’s clear to see his love for production runs deep, as intricate rhythms and melodies weave together perfectly, clamping in tight with sampled lyrics in “Sick Individual”. “It is what It Is” follows a more traditional liquid route with Brazilian soul and a heartbeat of pure sizzling gold. To round of the hat trick, title track “For The Listeners” features the lyrical stylings of Lego and a damn addictive bassline over a happy-go-lucky melody. One to keep an eye on for sure.
