Image: 1604056 Belgian producer Poldoore (born Tom Schillebeeckx) has revealed
The Day After, handily providing a sequel to his well-received
previous album on Cold Busted, The Day Off. Within its eleven
distinctive tracks Poldoore has further developed his vibe-rich
sound, creating deft blends of funk, soul, lounge, and reggae topped
with punchy drum breaks.
The Day After is filled with highlights and shows Poldoore’s keen
ability at crafting floor-effective instrumental head-nodders as well
as delicate melodic arrangements featuring talented guest vocalists.
“No Face” and “A Higher Intelligence” (featuring Kabanjak of Ancient
Astronauts) are examples of Poldoore’s fine-tuned beatology, mixing
hip hop samples and tough DJ-ready rhythms over impressively
produced musical elements. The result is much headier than the
usual ‘instrumental hip hop’ fare, with cuts equally at home in the
clubs as in the earphones. But it’s with the vocal tracks that The Day
After really shines.
The lovely and soulful “Midnight In Saigon” presents vocalist Astrid
who entices the listener with her intoxicating melodies, while
London-based rapper Barney Artist adds compelling verses to
Poldoore’s proper beats on “Broke For A Minute”.A pleasant surprise
also comes in the form of “The Road”, a skankin’ reggae primemover featuring Thievery Corporation collaborator Sleepy Wonder,
as well as sax and flute from Garrett Kobsef who recently recorded
with Grammy winners Morgan Heritage. These ambitious moments
heighten the resonance of Poldoore’s The Day After, placing it firmly
in the realm of something special.
