It’s never too late about to write about timeless music is it. I mean that’s why it’s probably called timeless in the first place.
Don’t get me wrong – this album has never passed us by unnoticed. It’s been rockin’ our ipods ever since it came out in January. Why we haven’t reviewed it yet? Sometimes you take your time to take things in. Honeycomb vol 1 is a one of those experiences.
In the intro Josh Milan says that this album was born through frustration. Out of frustration of what house music has become. In many cases no good will come from this. For most people frustration is a negative emotion which doesn’t carry forward. Josh Milan has proven contrary. This compilation is truly something to behold. Soulful music reaching heights and depths often left untouched. And in many ways it’s a lot more than house.
What you get is 12 tracks of music in a sense of what music supposed to be. Layered compositions (mostly) written and produced by Josh Milan and performed together with some of the finest musicians out there – Cassio Ware, Angela Johnson, Dawn Tallmann, Chinahblac, Lamone and many others.
I’m not going to pick out any individual songs to mention. That’s not right. One of the reasons this album takes time to sink in is just because of that – it’s an album as a whole. And surprisingly, this is a feat becoming more and more rare. Although not mentioned in the intro, in a way this is also a frustration with todays dance music. Albums are more like collections. Not this one here.
From the very first track, the Honeycomb vol 1 is an experience.
One might think that this review here didn’t say much. If it didn’t, it didn’t. Guess I’m not that good with words. But I surely hope that you will have a listen and I’m sure this will fly to your bag.
