After half a decade, Silhouette Brown - the original production and songwriting team of broken beat/nu jazz vocalist Bembe Segue, Kaidi Tatham (Agent K / Bugz In The Attic) and Dego (2000black / 4hero / dkd) - return with their aptly titled sophomore album, two. 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.
Alma's distinctive soulful voice brings a vivacious energy to the various sounds introduced in the album. Her past projects include countless club classics from Sylk130's "When the Funk Hits The Fan" to Soul Dahmma's "Happy" and 4hero's "Hold it Down." In two, Silhouette Brown is experimenting with different genres to create wonderful and meaningful music.
"Get With It" is a hip-hop song featuring Brand Nubian's Sadat X, which talks about uniting and progressing. "Leave A Note" talks about suicide, while "Hear Them Often Say" is about having faith. Another instant hit is the collaboration with M.D Akwasi on "Strawberries in Vinegar," which is a guaranteed boogie anthem. Silhouette Brown's extremely skillful production team pushes a warm, sumptuous melody, which delivers groove in a way only they know how. This group of extra-ordinary artists created two, which is the musical product of their skills and talents.
