The Herbaliser - Nah'mean Nah'm Sayin' (feat. Jean Grae)
(12"/CDS/Download CDS) Ninja Tune ZEN12169/ZENCDS169/ZENDLS169, 2005-11-21

Info :
Le nouveau maxi de The Herbaliser vise en priorité les Djs. Qu'il s'agisse du "Nah'mean Nah'm Sayin'" au beat bien heavy et aux riffs de cuivres massifs, avec ou sans Jean Grae en grande forme quand elle est énervée comme ça (une version instrumentale du coup très toon est dispo), ou du "Gadget Funk", épique tuerie electro-bombay-disco-space invaders, c'est sur le dancefloor que ces deux extraits de l'album "Take London" prendront toute leur saveur explosive. Le remix des Platinum Pied Pipers, au swing tout chewing-gum, ponctue le single d'une ambiance psychédélique qui rend l'agressivité du rap de Madame Grae tout "mellow". Ça pouvait plutôt sembler inconcevable à priori, mais si vous confier l'affaire à des spécialistes du groove stone-washed, tout devient possible. La version instrumentale de ce remix ne doit, elle, pas être sans déplaire à des gens comme Nightmares On Wax, par exemple... - Djouls

The new EP from The Herbaliser aims at Djs first. Take a "Nah' mean Nah' m Sayin'" with a rather heavy beat and the massive brass licks, with or without Jean Grae, in great health when she's angry like that (n instrumental version that seems very toon-ish in comparison with the vocal mix is available too), or take an epic "Gadget Funk", a bomb of electro-bombay-disco-space invaders funky groove, it'll be on the dancefloor that these two pieces from their "Take London" album will bring all their explosive flavors. The Platinum Pied Pipers remix, with its chewing-gum swing, punctuates the EP with a psychedelic feeling that smoothes the anger of the rap from Mrs Grae. Mellow... mellow... mellow, would say Peter Sellers. You wouldn't have believed it possible on hearing the original version, but if you to entrust the business to some specialists of the stone-washed groove, anything can happen. The instrumental version of this remix, finally, shouldn't be displeasing to people like Nightmares One Wax, for example... - Djouls
