Boomkat Product Review:
Slum Village mainstay and Jay Dilla peer, Waajeed cues up eight exclusive joints defining his love for his native Detroit following Carl Craig and Stacey Pullen’s lead on the Planet E series
Landing 12 months after self-released ‘From The Dirt LP’ on Dirt Tech Reck, Waajeed’s definition of Detroit Love forms a deeply rooted survey of the city’s contemporary soul, funk and house strands in light of his love for the sounds of Roy Ayers, Kraftwerk and Funkadelic that he grew up with.
Drawn from an accompanying 20-track mix, the set spans a haul of artists who are perhaps not so well known outside the 313 postcode, yet deserve to be. They range from Roddy Rod with the loose but angular jazz-funk/broken beat chops of ‘Overbite’, and thru to Matthew Law with the sparking ghetto-tech swang of ‘Minimariddim’ at its loosest, and takes in a ruck of deeply rugged house moves that could hardly have come from anywhere else, namely the rots hustle of Damon Bell feat. Camille Safiya on ‘Mermaid Blues’; DJ Rimarkable with the guttural drive and toasty soul moans of ‘I’m In Trouble’; a satiny Afro-Latinate rug-cutter from D-Love Muzic; and the deep house heat of ‘Gonna Tell Me’ by Teflon Dons.
