Greyboy Soul Mosaic
- Words: Janet Tzou
- Label: Ubiquity
Take the stop-start staccato of beat-box hip-hop jams, inject downtempo funk rhythms, and pare it all down with Andreas "Greyboy" Stevens's trademark minimalism and you're listening to what a body-rocker would sound like if those fluid moves could be somehow become audible. SoCal's Greyboy was one of the first Stateside peeps to suss out the heady possibilities of acid jazz, and this album is a culmination of past hip-hop 'n jazz, live funk, and turntablist endeavors. Check vocal stylings from Sharon Jones (of retro-funketeers Dap Kings), whose breezy hooks on "Got To Be A Love" will send a sudden electric charge right to your sexy spot.
