Pomrad Knights on 2LP
Following up on his critically acclaimed This Day EP, Adriaan Van de Velde aka Pomrad makes his full length debut with Knights, a collection of razor sharp keyboard licks, phat electro grooves and thick funk. Just check out the title track, its beats chug like the wheels of a locomotive and electrifying synth solos guarantee the best brain freeze you've ever felt. There's also postmodern retro-funk ("City lights," "Rush Hour") and you'll find a couple of talented soul singers hiding inside Pomrad's cotton candy fantasies here as well. You want some cosmic funk, Herbie Hancock style you got it. Need some of that Hudson Mohawke-ish beat madness or the kind of talkbox vibes that Zapp was known for in the '80s...this Pomrad experience encompasses it all and then some.
