Sly Johnson The Mic Buddah Limited Vinyl 2LP Set

A singularly talented man with an extraordinary voice and groove, an impassioned artist who has absorbed music influences of the most varied styles since a very young age: from Jazz, to Latin and Blues and beyond. For example, you can hear Marvin Gaye in the track "Why ft. Rachel Claudio, Erik Truffaz & Valérie Delgado," J Dilla in his cover of Al Green's "Simply Beautiful," or Bobby McFerrin on the track "Good Morning". You can hear the results of all these musical convergences and collaborations that have shaped him over the years (SAIAN SUPA CREW...RZA...Camille...Erik Truffaz... Rokia Traoré... Oxmo Puccino, whom we find on the track "Music"...Brand Nubian... Roots Manuva... Arsonits... Rahzel... Declaime AKA Dudley Perkins... Wildchild of Lootpack... T3 & Elzhi of Slum Village...

It retains the unique color and texture of HIP-HOP with its sound that is so tough, grainy, dry, blunt, heavy, and percussive. It has obviously preserved its BEATBOX, a vocal art in which he excels tremendously, especially during his dazzling improvisations on stage that you can hear on La Machine. The Beatbox has become the most important component of all his compositions and arrangements. From Soul Music, Sly gets his sense of depth, sensitivity, emotion, forcefulness and eroticism, all of which have been so deliciously mixed together on this new album and spiced in a very hot and funky sauce!
