UK musicians have a reputation for innovation. From the rock and pop bands of the 1960s to the producers of drum n’ bass, dubstep and grime, British music makers have a long history of taking largely black, American music and not just reproducing it, but radically changing it to fit their own experience. After more than a quarter of a century making music and touring the world, much loved UK band The Herbaliser are a longstanding part of this tradition.
British musical innovation is something that, in many cases, just seems to occur naturally. For The Herbaliser though, it happened partially out of necessity. The UK’s hip hop scene was hardly developed at the time they began, aside from a handful of trailblazers like London Posse. With the release of their 2018 album ‘Bring Out The Sound’ (their first for BBE Records), The Herbaliser finally link with UK hip hops roots in a way in which they weren’t able when starting out. Thanks to their reputation and renown, they have been able to call upon their sometime stage collaborator Rodney P (originally from London Posse) to feature, for the first time, as their guest studio vocalist.
With six years having passed since their last LP it seems time between albums is increasing for The Herbaliser, although any delay cannot solely be attributed to their existence within music. The trials and tribulations of wider life aside, The Herbaliser return again, as indefatigable as ever, with their unique, cinematic take on hip hop and their ever popular live spectaculars. It’s been a while in coming, but it’s once again time to Bring Out The Sound.
