Yohimbe Brothers The Tao of Yo
- Words: Jonathan Zwickel
- Label: Thirsty Ear
Fortify one supremely musical, polymorphous turntablist with the world's heaviest funk rock guitarist and you end up with a wickedly potent stimulant. On their second album, the Yohimbe Brothers-axe-grinder Vernon Reid of Living Colour and the ever-versatile DJ Logic-hone the sexed-up bounce of their debut into a jagged, penetrating edge slicing through crunchy breaks, new jazz atmospherics, Latin grooves, and hardened political hip-hop. Reid's MACH 3 guitar blasts through Logic's ghostly samples and hypnotic scratches, while guests like drums wiz Deantoni Parks, vocalist Latasha Nevada Diggs, and MCs Traz and Bos Omega add aggro percussion and pointed lyrics.
