Smoke Notes

Seasoned San Francisco DJ/Producer Greyboy was one of the first artists signed to hip West Coast label Ubiquity. His style has gone from making breaks with jazz-funk elements to full blown productions distinguished by classic sampling techniques and an ear for smooth chords and beats. Soul Mosaic is without doubt his most accomplished release and should see this often-maligned artist finally get the respect he deserves. Opener Genevieve is actually a cover of seventies band Cymande, not that youd know given the brilliant cut and paste sampling. The song also features another outstanding talent in vocalist Bart Davenport, who pops up on another two cuts - the deep and soulful Make Music and another cover, this time Stevie Wonders To Know You Is To Love You which is tackled with equal success. Greyboy is certainly not afraid to attempt different angles. Bronson is solid underground hip-hop, yet elsewhere on the album we have two-step (Omega), and pure experimentation (Loggia) giving the record longevity hard to find in todays bigger is better environment. The inclusion of a stunning collaboration with Quantic and Sharon Jones, Got To Be A Love, finally confirms that this is a truly ambitious record that works, and an album that simply relies on quality and hard work to deliver its thrilling message. If you enjoy contemporary breaks and the sound of "nu-soul" you will find plebty to love here.
