RIYL: Curtis Mayfield, William Onyeabor, Silk Rhodes
Label: City Slang
Sinkane has been around for the better part of a decade, but I first heard him whenÂ 2014’s Mean Love dropped. Â That year was packed with great music, but Sinkane’s How We Be was my favorite track out of all of ’em by a long shot. Â I’ve been a huge fan ever since. Â He’s got the 1970s funky soul thing down to a science, but his studio wizardry and experimental dance compositions keep him embedded firmlyÂ in forward-thinking territory. Â His unwavering falsetto conjures up the soul of Curtis Mayfield while a body of wah-wah pedals and horn sections hoist him to the rafters. Â It’s sweaty, it’s sultry, it’s Sinkane.
