Al-Haca Soundsystem Inevitable EP
- Words: Ron Nachmann
- Label: Different Drummer
German roots/dancehall hybridists Al-Haca do us all a favor and bring four highlight cuts from their debut album, Inevitable, to vinyl. From New Yorker RQM's street poetry over buzzy dancehall on "We Sick" to Sizzla's Sizzla-isms over the minimalist bounce-step of "Break the Silence," Al-Haca's all about steady rootsy bass vibes and masterful vocals lording over a truckload of solid, risk-taking beat structures. This'll probably irk more than a few reggae purists, but that's a good thing.
