Solu Music Affirmation
- Words: Doug Morton
- Label: Solu Music
Giving deep house a healthy dose of fresh, soul-driven innovation, NYC‘s Dano Nathanson and Howie Caspe slide their debut album over to us like a beautifully garnished cocktail. Kai Martin‘s silken vocals caress the album‘s perfectly balanced instrumental flow, weaving effortlessly between the funk-fueled bumpery of "Can‘t Help Myself" and "Just Don‘t Know" to the beautiful, melancholy depths of "It Ain‘t Love" and "Blvd." The superb keys, thoughtful lyrics and percussive zest found on Affirmation get upgraded even further with Dano‘s wide-ranging guitar presence, adding tremendously to the album‘s live energy. Seductive and smooth, Affirmation goes right to your head.
