Worldwide Premiere // Sampology feat. Tiana Khasi – Thicker Than Water
August 18, 2016
Send in the marine biologists, because there must be something in the water around Australia’s shores at the moment. From the polyrhythmic prog-rock jams of Haitus Kaiyote at one end, to the RnB soothers of Silent Jay & Jace XL and the Dilla-esque musings of Jordan Rakei, Australian soul is blooming (and we’re not talking the algae kind). Helping to catalyse this chemical reaction (okay marine metaphors end here) is Soul Has No Tempo, a Brisbane label who first unveiled Jordan Rakei to the world, and continued that recently with the release of his debut album.
Their latest soulful nugget comes from fellow Brisbanite Sampology with his new EP Natural Selections. The first cut to be aired is ‘Thicker Than Water’, combining the weighty basslines and gentle Rhodes we’re used to with Harvey Sutherland, alongside the gentle tones of Tiana Khasi.
Natural Selections EP is out 23rd September – pre-order from the Soul Has No Tempo Bandcamp.
