Quality as ever from MAW,
This review is from: Our Time Is Coming (Audio CD)Kenny and Louie are responsible for some of the finest soulful dance music ever made. Both have a serious love of all forms of quality black music from Latin to Jazz to House to Hip-Hop. Hear either of them DJ and this becomes pretty obvious.
This album marks few departures from their tried and tested soulful house sound but if it aint broke don't fix it! Highlights are plentiful. 'Like A Butterfly' feat Patti Austin is euphoric vocal house heaven. There are also fine male vocal tracks featuring Roy Ayres and James Ingram and the faithful tribute to Fela Kuti feat Wunmi is is Afrobeat gold. The ragga-house hybrid of 'Work' is not typical MAW but great nontheless. The album finishes with a touching message from an MAW fan who avoided death at the World Trade Centre as she was late for work listening to one of Kenny's tracks.
Anyone vaguely interested in soulful house music should own this album but newcomers should look for the MAW back catalogue to be found on their 2 10th anniversary box sets. Long live MAW.
