Fliptrix, Leaf Dog, BVA and Verb T all have a story to tell and are accomplished artists in their own right. They first came together and dropped their highly acclaimed debut album ‘Natures Greatest Mystery’ back in December 2011. The release was shrouded in mystery and that instant classic boombap sound is what quickly saw them rise to the uppermost branches (excuse the pun) of our scene and beyond.
Everyone and their sisters mate have been waiting for a follow up to their debut and, last week, after more than a little anticipation we checked our OneLion inbox to find the next instalment of bird based brilliance. 'Natural Order' had swooped in overnight.
DJ Premier (half of Gangstarr and go to producer for the likes of Big L, Biggie, Nas, M.O.P, Jeru The Damaja, KRS-One and Mos Def to name a few).
The album itself is seamlessly structured and serves as a testament to the growth and development of Leaf’s production. All 16 tracks will grab your attention as there is a huge amount of diversity as the beats switch and set the mood beautifully for whats about to follow. These owls are wise and have a formula between them that does not fail.
As well as the Premo production, the project features guest barrings from the likes of Jam Baxter and Dirty Dike as well as RLD rapscallion, Smellington Piff & has cuts from High Focus resident turntablist, DJ Sammy B Side.
Overall this is nothing short of a classic. It has everything you could want from a release in the right proportions and once you get a chance to hear it, you’ll know exactly what we mean.
Plain and simple - If you have a physical music collection, this CD will be collected and the limited vinyl will be treasured. Years from now when you look back over your collection, this will be one that you draw for first.
