...more audacious than your average 'neo soul' outing...
Matilda Egere-Cooper 2006
Those in search of a consummate soul album, and one that's more audacious than your average'neo soul' outing,should pay close attention. Infamous Philly DJ Rich Medina presents a kaleidoscopic view of soul on his solo debut Connecting The Dots -employing hip-hop, house, jazz, afrobeat and spoken-word to stake his claim on the recording game.
Over the length of 18 tracks, Medina's leftish production varies from the ambient ("Choklit Ninja") to the booty-shaking ("Can't Hold Back"),while his candid observations of life's daily operations manage to strike a chord in the midst of the CD's musical grandeur.
A progressive soul experience; Medina, you'll forever beThe Man.
