Sa-Ra Creative Partners Nuclear Evolution: The Age of Love
- Words: Rico "Superbizzee" Washington
- Label: Ubiquity
- XLR8R Rating: 8/10
Their glorious reputation precedes them. The Kanye West affiliation. The production work for the likes of Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, and John Legend. The Japan-only limited run vinyl EP pressings. Reuniting with Ubiquity after five years, the L.A.-based Sa-Ra Creative Partners deliver their sophomore full-length in the form of these 17 supercalifunky tracks. Wedged between sleaze and supernatural, Nuclear Evolution drops bombs on the sonic spectrum, from sun-bleached bossa nova (“Spacefruit”), glitchy instrumental funk romps (“Move Your Ass”), and boom bip Iceberg Slim fables (“Traffika”). With assists from Badu (“Dirty Beauty”), veteran saxophonist Gary Bartz, and newcomer Noni Lamar (“I Swear”), this megawatt thumper further cements Sa-Ra’s status as preeminent innovators of tomorrow’s soundscapes.
