SLOW is not just the name of the latest release from the Bernese Soul/Hip Hop producer SAD, it’s also his music-making methodology and an all around life philosophy. It’s a way for the brother to enjoy the ride thoroughly – raising 3 kids, holding down a teaching job, and keeping his Souldogs band inspired and sharp, and the beats coming. SLOW is the only option for this brother, and it’s also his natural stride.
SLOW came about very organically through live improv sessions with the Souldogs crew. Originally the record was supposed to be a pure Soul effort – with only female vocals on it (Djemeia), but then the T3 and Young Rj from Slum Village heard it and jumped on board. The outcome is a record that will probably make Questlove shed some heavy tears reminiscing over his Nusoul agenda of the mid to late 90s.
SLOW is a record made for the mature Hip Hop / Soul listener. It was cut by a producer who came up in that 90s era, and who not only loves this sound, but also knows how to cook it down right. SLOW is a celebration of life and it’ll make you slow down a notch guaranteed.
