Boomkat Product Review:
Detroit and Berlin souls enmesh as Terri McQueen aka Whodat meets Berlin’s Viola Klein on a deeply playful Workshop session
Coming from Detroit’s YDR313 2.0 record shop and with an Uzuri 12” in her back pocket, Whodat brings a rooted Motor City soul to Klein’s rugged flavours op-enly indebted to the likes of Theo Parrish and Marcellus Pittman.
On ‘Funeral Song’ they catch a melancholy breeze with blue but celebratory chords on a wickedly swung groove offset with hiccuping vocal to get the ‘floor in a lather. With ‘Reprise’ they cut a few shades deeper, wriggling right inside the groove with crafty bassline dancing all around and off the beat, underlining and charging choice vocal samples about strength in unity. One for the allday sunday crew!
