You better hold on tight when you press play on iLLBiLLY HiTEC’s third album „One Thing Leads To Another“!
The Berlin band formation around Alex “Tourstress” Brechow has branched out for this one, combining the mastermind of producer Jesse “Dubmatix” King with an illustrious array of international vocalists. Most of the songs feature Kinetical, an Austrian newcomer who has already toured excessively with the iLLBiLLYs last year. Other new names on the scene outside their base UK are Gardna, who revolutionarily rocks Real, and Parly B, who brings the cumbianesque Blaze alive with a Suku-like vibe. “Close your eyes, feel the vibes, let the bass-line guide you!”
Of course, the HiTEC home-MC Longfingah can’t be left out, and in Way Up he makes clear that nothing can stop his way to the top. Lovers of Jungle should be satisfied with the Fleck remix of Happy; the resistless original with Horseman and Kinetical reminds us of a slow version of Seeed’s high-spirits-hit Riddim Nr. 1. A smoother sound is laid out in Seven Seas and Better Recognize, on which Daphne Bluebird breathes her soft voice.
The lyrics are highly topical, picking up current issues such as the ‘Welcome Refugees’ theme in No Borders (featuring Promoe, Kinetical and Em Wan) or the stark contrast between voracious consumption and poverty in We All Are Poor, to which a special touch is added by Fli Supertramp. And even though we’re not a fluent speaker of Spanish, the beauty of Arte Del Silencio translates easily from the mouths of craftsmen HanIvan and Lengualerta.
Dubmatix, who has exclusively produced the riddims together with Alex, closes with the twelfth and last track, a fine remix of No Borders, again stressing the importance of its message.
