After half a decade, Silhouette Brown – the original production and songwriting team of Bembe Segue, Kaidi Tatham and Dego – return with their sophomore album aptly titled, two. Silhouette Brown guides us towards a new dimension for modern soul music with a distinctively London-esque flair, combining jazz and nu soul.
This time they are joined by Philadelphia’s Lady Alma of 4hero’s “Hold It Down” fame and delve into an array of subject matters. Leaning toward a hip hop sound, “Get With It” features Brand Nubian’s Sadat X, who waxes about uniting and progressing. Another instant hit is the collaboration with musical director Akwasi on “Strawberries in Vinegar,” a guaranteed boogie anthem. On two, London’s underground production heroes Dego and Kaidi push a warm, sumptuous, melody-driven groove in a way that only they know how.
