MCDE - Raw Cuts #5

I was thrilled to find out there's another Raw Cuts release from Germany's Motor City's Drum Ensemble coming up. These guys seem to save their best output for their Raw Cuts label (The recent 2020 vision thing wasn't really my bag to be honest). The first two Raw Cuts were midtempo burners of the highest order. Detroity strings, heavy drums and chopped up vocals looped up and laced over the raw-sounding production.

This new release seems to be a one-sided affair, which starts out with some vocal snippets of Marvin Gaye and turns into headnodding fodder of the highest order. It pretty much follows the same recipe as used for the first two releases (sloppy claps, soul vocals, moodymanesque keys and drums). Can't wait to buy/play this.
