5.0 out of 5 stars Best album of the year so far, 20 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sebenza (Audio CD)
Every now and then, something comes along that is fresh, unexpected, and makes you rethink how music is made and heard. This album fuses ideas, cultures and continents in a completely new way. Listen...everything else you hear will fall into a new place!

4.0 out of 5 stars Dubstep - yes, dour - no, 30 Sep 2012

This review is from: Sebenza (Audio CD)
Too many dubstep and grime artists take themselves too seriously and lack a sense of humour, which ultimately makes for an unedifying listen in my experience. Check LV's Hyperdub label-mates Kode 9's last LP Black Sun by way of example): the aural equivalent of an episode of "Eastenders"

Not so with LV though - the sound is still dark and grimy - the sound of inner city streets and bedrooms but, there's a SOUL to this music, in tracks such as "Uthando Lwakho", which makes the crucial difference. The South African accents (African, not Afrikaner) of the various MCs used on the record also give it a different, fresher feel - veering more towards the sort of music released by that other record label of the moment, Honest Jon's.

If you're a fan of the core Hyperdub sound, "Sebenza" will not disappoint.
