By Low Life
Following on from his last long-player, Listening To The Voice Inside, Ho continues in the deeply tribal vein, only this time more so. This is very much a real album in the sense that nothing jumps out at you, rather it all fits together nicely and works in synergy. It’s not just a couple great tracks separated by a lesser few, but rather a well-considered journey that tells it’s own story. As with all of his work, Ho’s production is top class, and his sound quite distinctive, taking elements from various sources and shaping them into his own. The African element that runs through the heart this album gives it a warm ethnic texture as tribalism is fused with influences of jazz and house. This production sees the maturing Ho in his element just be prepared for something quite subtle.
