WBSS - Hydromajestik

Click for Larger Image

WICKED BEAT SOUND SYSTEM’s new album ‘Hydromajestik’ has drought-breaker written all over it. Recorded and produced on a farm during Australia’s worst drought in living memory, this album, full of optimism, searching and soulful lyricism may just be the thing to turn it all around.

Clearly a joy to make, album number 5 for this pioneering electronica outfit marshals together a maturity etched with the unalterable deft touch of cool that will forever characterise Wicked Beat Sound System.

Packed with tracks reminiscent of the neo-soul of Wicked Beat Sound System’s year 2000 ‘Inna Styles’ release, ‘Hydromajestik’ occupies a similar grand and anthemic space. Stripped back and spacious, but still soaked in the subtleties of DAMIAN ROBINSON’s luscious and sophisticated sound scapes, LINDA JANSSEN’s vocals roam and soar effortlessly across this album with a selfassuredness that resonates with the sheer class of her considerable vocal talents.

These collaborators, who have explored so many musical shades over their fifteen-year history, have emerged upon a new horizon. Here their skies are bold and expansive and the fervent complexity and often darker urgency of previous Wicked Beat Sound System releases have opened out into a brighter, searing album of considerable depth and breadth.

3D WORLD “After an extended hiatus Wicked Beat soundsystem are sounding better than ever” … AUSTRALIAN MUSICIAN MAGAZINE "a nice piece of work, well though out and beautiful instrumentation."… HOBART MERCURY“ the dark shades of their past have been replaced by brighter tones, unbridled optimism and a joyous feel. This might just be their best album yet”… NICOLE FINDLAY, 3RRR "Core enlightening vocals and a hybrid of moodswinging basslines make for a very easy headride - nice!"… INTHEMIX. COM.AU “Janssen’s voice is phenomenal, and Robinson is a talented composer… an excellent album, and well worth checking out.”
