yah supreme & brohemian: post modern garden
yah supreme & brohemian: post modern garden

“Finally the debut album of Yah Supreme, the Brooklyn rapper known for a series of singles on his old label, Son Doo…With ‘Post Modern Garden,’ Yah Supreme delivers us an album of rare quality. It stands at the crossroads of rap, soul, slam and true poetry. We find him in 2006 with his band Brohemian, produced by Tommaso ‘Fallou’ Cappellato… The musical voyage with Yah Supreme can now begin! Release yourself, forget your worries and concentrate on Post Modern Garden and its sonic destinations like ‘B.K. Bon Vivant,’ ‘Things She Wants To Do To Me’ or ‘Winter in Brooklyn.’ Ride with Yah Supreme–each song is like a musical stopover on a smooth journey to Brooklyn.” -DJ Akan

“Self-described as ‘atmospheric hip hop,’ the waters through which these songs tread run much deeper than that. Respecting the music as an art form, the live band featured on this intricately woven collection is graceful but not timid, easily coaxing elemental funk out of the jazzy pallet that they work from. The percussion (along with the vocals) is rhythmically loose but precise, adding a musician’s feel that is rarely seen in the current hip hop landscape. Yah’s MC skills are equally on point, painting a vivid picture of Brooklyn past and present by taking the listener on a first hand verbal tour of the fabled neighborhood, recalling stories that merit a retelling. This narrative style is bold but becoming, a thematic vehicle that keeps the songs pushing forward with swelling intensity and intelligence.” -cdbaby
