Pick of the Week : Black Motion – Fortune Teller (Album)
Kalawa Jazmee’s Black Motion has recently released their long-awaited second studio album, titled ‘Fortune Teller’ – and yeesh, trust me when I say, this right here is a beautifful offering.
Now, you should know by now that my love for this thing called house knows no boundaries – I mean, from afro-centric soul, to minimal tech and Jackin’ house, even that Modern Disco vibe. Therefore, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I recently showcased this album on my radio show, Mixed Emotions, this past weekend. Though, in my opinion, this offering could’ve really done with some more music variety – but still, that doesn’t mean it gets irritatingly monotonous. If anything, it means that, like me, you’ll how consistent these boys are (and that’s a good thing?! Or, so I have been told).
Anyways, believe me when I say that, this right here, packs a really good punch. A punch so great, in fact, they reached gold status in CD sales (kudos for that milestone, by the way – so proud of BM).
So, yeah! Do grab a copy – Promise you won’t regret it.
