Kid Sublime Basement Soul
- Words: Rob Geary
- Label: Kindred Spirits
If Kid Sublime‘s Basement Soul is to be believed, Amsterdam‘s Stateside sister city should be Philadelphia. Philly‘s stew of hip-hop, R&B, and house-as played by everyone from The Roots to Jazzy Jeff to Vikter Duplaix-seems to have reached the headphones of Kid Sublime, as his debut is a collection that unites rappers and singers from America and the Netherlands in a good-time soulful groove. Basement Soul is drenched in old school flavor and future sounds with warm, funky arrangements and the occasional unexpected breakbeat coda-methinks this Kid should spend some time on these shores.
