‘The week after the weekend that may forever be recalled as the one upon which Damon Albarn called a creative halt to both Blur and Gorillaz, the returning Del The Funky Homosapien unleashes a slinky ‘lil collaborative number with break mongers Parallel Thought that’s somehow never to make the grade for the hip hop unification of East and West coasts that is Attractive Sin. Why the link? Well, my ears first stumbled upon the prickly lyrical spits of Teren Delvon Jones when the Californian was masquerading as Del the Ghost Rapper on Albarn’s quite sensational Clint Eastwood single an entire career ago. If Ya Dont [sic] features a suave sample of Menahan Street Band’s soulful stylings and Jones’ typically nefarious baritone. It’s deep, smooth, and apt continuum of his old school Funkadelica fusion.’
Attractive Sin is expected June 18th via Parallel Thought LTD.
