Fresh import - Adrian Sherwood alongside Los Gaiteros De San Jacinto - Khaliphonic03 -

Across two discs, we are invited to check back into sounds of columbia, with the added aesthetics of the On:U sound veteran 'Adrian Sherwood' on the mixing desk.

Bringing to light this unexpected combination, we were thoroughly impressed by the first 12" on ZamZam off-shoot 'Khaliphonic' - as followers of the labels know, it's fair to say that each of their releases can be trusted, in terms of musical quality & design.

This 2LP uncovers further recordings from the Columbian group, bringing their traditional, yet slightly unorthodox sound forward to the master of dub-oddity for added dubwise spirit.
Musically speaking, we are listening to a group of musicians, well versed in their instruments - filling the frequency spectrum with ease - from the Vocals, to the Accordion, Maracas, various south-american percussion and of course the columbian 'Gaita' - it's a full sound.
Adrian Sherwood has done well to touch it with care and ease... He's left a ghostly touch on most tracks, occasionally splashing out a twisted bit of echo and burst of reverb into the mix, lifting this already (at least to a our ears) otherworldly and psychadelic sound further into the distance - adding space and time, in perfect harmony with the imminence and human sound that this group portray.

This is people's music, full of life and rhythm - the vinyl captures this perfectly, and Sherwood distills the sonics in a grandiose way.

A thoroughly engrossing listen, from the upbeat Cumbia numbers through to the slower tempo'd, rootsy exursions - this is eloquent, heavyweight cumbian roots.

There is no sell-by date on this kind of music, this one's a keeper - treat yourself.

Produced by Adrian Sherwood and Diego Gómez, mixed by Adrian Sherwood at On-U Sound.
Mastered by Kevin Metcalfe at Sound Masters UK.
