Title: Up In Smoke
Artist: Ese and The Vooduu People
Date: 30th July 2019
There’s a true authenticity around the sound of this album. The live sound adds to the youthful and exposed nature of the record; especially evident on tracks ‘Peace of Mind’ and ‘Up in Smoke.’ And I dare you to stay still when ‘Silver Spoon’ plays; what starts with a head nod and toe tap soon becomes dancing along to an anthem.
This is a great offering from the electric soul trio from South London; although you can’t help but wish the album was a little more refined to show off the lead vocals.
You’ll love this album if:
- Mellow Magic has a place in your heart
- You prefer the authentic sounds of natural, untainted bands
This album might not be for you if:
- You prefer studio, polished albums with a less authentic feel.
- You like an artist who can blend to all different genres
