Hot on the heels of his brilliant ‘Super Foods’ trilogy of albums on BBE, Australian production powerhouse Inkswel returns with a brand new solo effort entitled ‘Unity 4 Utopia’. Stellar collaborators Steve Spacek, Recloose, Danielle Moore of Crazy P, Lay-Far, Kid Sublime, Mark de Clive-Lowe & Colonel Red all make an appearance help to make Inkswel’s quest for musical utopia a reality, and the album certainly does not disappoint.
As the man himself puts it: “we need to work together if we want happiness and furthermore if we want positive change – this is mirrored in music, collaboration being key”. Echoes of early hip hop, 80’s boogie, disco and House can all clearly be heard, all woven together by Inkwel’s uniquely soulful, futuristic yet vintage production style.
Drawn together by an abundantly positive feeling, vocal performances and beats are all faultlessly smooth and highly polished, but somehow the album retains a real sense of fun.
Already touring tirelessly, ‘Unity 4 Utopia’ could well be the project which elevates Mr Inkswel from an underground phenomenon into a household name.
