The Herbaliser Something Wicked

Press Release :
The soulfully symphonic title track Something Wicked featuring the charismatic and operatic vocals of the talented Seaming To, begins the voyage on the album and kicks off the single in perfect style. "Something Wicked" is given the once over in the form of a lively Bossa remix on track two; a collaboration between Herbaliser founders Jake Wherry and Ollie Teeba and those masters of arrangement The Easy Access Orchestra; displaying in full, dexterity, diversity and understanding of all that is musical. A quality flowing take on the original; perfect for bringing out those summer vibes.

Another of those closely associated with The Herbaliser and a key member of the touring Herbaliser band is the awesome, talent that is Kaidi Tatham. Under his alias Agent K, he executes his take on the popular album track Mr. Holmes with a beautiful funk driven version. Pure class and pure Kaidi. No surprise he's a leading light in the West London Broken Beats scene and with his album Feed The Cat (Laws Of Motion) as Agent K a testimony to where he's at and what he's got to offer. Just one of the many musicians and collaborators whose arrangements helped shape the extraordinary album that is Something Wicked This Way Comes.

Quotes :
"Two chapters and three mixes taken from this their fourth and arguably most comprehensive album work. The tastiest blend of the Herbs yet." (The Independent On Sunday); "Not only their best album but one of the best the Brit beats scene has yet produced ."(Muzik).
