Hipology by Visioneers
Released: Jun 2012
Label: BBE
Marc Mac of U.K. junglists 4Hero launched Visioneers to pay homage to classic hip-hop breaks. His 2006 debut, Dirty Old Hip Hop, was too cool and muted, save for one brilliant cover of Pete Rock's "The World Is Yours." This follow-up has the same soulful downtempo tone, but with dozens of musicians to assist him, it's more vividly realized than that debut. "Swahililand," which riffs on J Dilla's "Stakes Is High," has an impressive orchestral sweep, and everyone knows "Apache." But it's not all remakes: "Whatever Happened to Peace" is a haunting jazz number that soars into the cosmos.
