Raised on the sounds of Freddie Hubbard, Stevie Wonder, Miles Davis and Donna Hathaway, Dwele is without question one of Detroits finest. Originally discovered by the legendary producer J.Dilla, Dwele first caught the attention of Slum Village who invited him to sing on the hook of their now classic joint 'Tainted'. The rest as they say is history.
With his fourth album proper, Detroit’s crown prince of velvety-as-melted-chocolate soul jams yearns to morph his multi-genre musicality into a whole to rival transcending greats like Marvin Gaye and Donny Hathaway. And though Andwele ‘Dwele’ Gardner’s spirit seems torn between deep conscientiousness, material concerns and the pleasures of flesh, W.ants W.orld W.omen isn’t far off, particularly on the former count.
Continuing hip hop/RnB’s dubious history of shoehorning dual definition into acronyms, WWW bears the fingerprints of the slickest Motown and undeniable Gaye echoes. Things certainly take a turn in classic I Want You directions when Dwele double dips into loved-up subject matter on I Understand and Love You Right, the 32-year-old’s sheer conviction saving him from a cheesy end.
His conflicts are put into clear focus from cover art onwards, confirmed early on as I Wish flits from desiring the superficial ("Gucci swag") through to the profound and vaguely contradictory ("I just wish people would be happy with what God blessed them with" – better scratch that Gucci request, then).
The versatility of Dwele’s effortless delivery largely shifts attention away from mild hypocrisies, thankfully. And whether breathing his way through messages to disinterested lovers (Dodgin’ Your Phone) or temporarily convincing us the Motor City is a hazy paradise rather than gritty industrial metropolis (the dreamy Detroit Sunrise), it’s nearly all done at the pace of a man in no hurry to prove anything.
The beat picks up marginally as old hometown pals Slum Village roll in for How I Deal, guest verses jolting the album from a comparative stupor, only to be slowed immediately once barely-there state-of-nation address Hangover kicks in.
An overdue UK release doesn’t help Dwele’s cause: he is, undoubtedly, more sultry summer night than onset of autumn. But with quiet allure, one issue he needn’t stress over is tackled in modest style on I Wish. "I wish I made music that appealed to the masses," Dwele laments. W.ants W.orld W.omen’s clunky titular wordplay won’t aid that aspiration, but the smooth sounds within beg to differ, laidback as a Sunday morning lie-in and damn near as enjoyable.--Adam Kennedy

To a point I was disappointed (the inhale) and then I wasn't (the exhale); I'll explain why.
His initial albums where new, had that neo/funk/soul/hip hop flavour to it, different from the drivel that was coming out at the time and now I'm still not one to disagree with that to a point; including his latest work. Most artists will either stay in their genre and really work it, other move to another (like Pink for example from RnB to Rock), it's almost as if Dwele is about to leap into another genre somewhat then hesitates on a few of his songs.
I only had to listen to his last album the second time before I knew that it was a smash - you know REALLY listen, let the notes and lyrics mull around your mind, think about it's meaning, feeling the beat of the song and so on, but I still find myself listening to this one thinking, "I don't think that this is as good as...um".
The production is great, the vocals on point, the melodies; most a excellent, even though he doesn't curse loads I just think that that side doesn't "add" anything so he could cut that out really.
If I'm relaxing with friends one of the many albums I would put on would be a Dwele one, however I do not think that this particular album would be a first choice.
So my disappointment (excuse the rambling), all of his previous albums once I've heard it once or twice, I'll then play it out until the MP3 has worn out (figuratively speaking), but this time round his latest work isn't on my "repeat" list.Read more ›
Whether it's the current economic conditions (How I Deal), conditions in the black community (My People), fun (Hangover) or love (What's Not to Love, Dim the Lights).
Its a fantastic blend of songs with a few guest appearances which add to the quality. Still trying to work out which is my favourite song, but dodgin' your phone might just sneak it!
