On 'Sebenza', meaning 'work' in the Zulu language, South Africa meets
South London as the trio of producers hook up with three of their
favourite South African mc's, Okmalumkoolkat from Dirty Paraffin,
Spoek Mathambo and MC/producer duo, Ruffest.
The first sessions from the album started two years ago, when one of LV
went over to Jo-burg to DJ and hooked up with Spoek Mathambo on a
tip off from a mutual friend. One thing led to another and they were
introduced to Okmalumkoolkat, and on a later visit, to the duo of Sello
and Max who make up Ruffest. Their talents as mc's and infectious
characters are what drew LV to them, and by happy coincidence, the
synthesis of their vocals and LV's music form something fresh, unique
and playful.
Across the album, LV's music is 'zingy', analog synths, digitally propelled
by multisided rhythms, that take off from the interzone between uk funky
and kwaito house's bouncy rhythms, but detour much wider through the
spidery, digital soca/kuduro of 'Sebenza', the afro-garage of 'Animal
Prints', the scuttling triplets of 'DL' and 'Limb', the half speed grime of
'Zulu Compurar', the old school electro hip hop of 'International Pansula'
and the Prince-like synth melodies on closer 'Ultando Lwaka'. The
album shares a palate of sounds, but each track stretches this palate
into different templates, each custom built with the mc's flow and topic in
mind, slowed down and sped up where needed.
The three mc's styles differ from each other dramatically.
Okmalumkoolkat schizophrenically shape-shifts through different
characters; he's an Afro-futurist, tech nerd on 'Zulu Compurar', a wired
gangster on 'International Pansula', and on 'Spitting Cobra', a
shapeshifting bad man. Ruffest mix shout outs to the thugs on 'Hustla',
boast their uniqueness on 'Nothing Like Us' , bring the party on 'Thatha'
and get love sick on 'Uthando Lwakho'. On 'Limb' Spoek Mathambo's
rhymes dissolve into the rhythm like a holographic James Brown, while
'Work' answers Okmalumkoolkat's 'Sebenza' with instructional
cheerleading over clicking beats.
'Sebenza' is a joyful listen, refreshing in its disregard for musical and
verbal cliché. It brings to attention a handful of the awesome talent of
South Africa's young generation of MC's over the finest productions of
South London.
