General Elektriks - Crush ft. Pigeon John
So you may not have heard of Herve Salters aka General Elektriks but you've probably heard him as he has played keyboards with everyone from Femi Kuti to Blackalicious. With influences ranging from Stevie Wonder & Herbie Hancock to David Bowie & Prince to Beck & Radiohead to De La Soul and Pharcyde, it no wonder why GE is getting the following reviews!
(Featuring Pigeon John)
Sample: 'When doves cry' by Prince
"A unique, quirky mix of hip-hop, electronic music and Fender-Rhodes funk that could serve as a soundtrack for the new Millenium; call it Ennio Morricone for the 21st century."
"Like the Beatles in a pub brawl with the Neptunes, excellent!"
Quantic / Tru Thoughts, UK
"Providing the missing link between Gangstarr, Will Oldham and The Prodigy, Herve Salter's glitchy lounge electronics is the best thing to emerge from Compost Records in years."
