Lack of Afro - Back To The Day (LOA)
30th April 2018
Lack of Afro
A: Back To The Day
B: Take It Up A Notch
On foot of the release of Lack Of Afro's latest LP entitled 'Jack Of All Trades', the producer has called upon the supremely talented vocalist Elliot Cole to help out on 'Back To The Day'. Cole does more than duly oblige and what's on offer here is a track that pulls and tugs the summer from the dull soggy season and hands it a pair of sunnies and a beach towel. From the opening funky guitar lick which sets the tempo for the irrisistable falsetto tones of Cole to the accompanying brass section this track is a welcome return for Lack Of Afro that will surely garner him new admirers. This is the type of record that literally smiles back at you!
On the flip, 'Take It Up A Notch', Lack Of Afro enlists Wax & Herbal T and the scene changes from lounging by the pool to front and centre at the beach party at dusk. The record starts with the rapper's admission of untied laces but he's soon laced up and almost immediately up to speed with the rest of the gang on this block party jam that has all of our notches heading in a northward direction.
