Natural Self : The Sound

This excellent dancefloor filler is built around a superb rhythm track, sampled from an old spiritual by The Louisiana Sunspots, dirty brass and stompin' beats !
Natural Self is the ongoing project of Nathaniel Pearn, aka producer Keno-1. 2001 saw Natural Self’s production debut with the “Shakedown/The Soul step” single on Tru Thoughts. With seven years of DJing experience already under his belt by this time, he knew exactly how to work a dancefloor, and both tracks had a strikingly direct and confident sound. The characteristic combination of raw drums, polyrhythmic percussion and strident horns would become a signature style of the several singles that followed.
Natural Self’s 2006 debut album ‘Let Peace Be The Ruler’ for Breakin’ Bread records saw the introduction of live recording into the Natural Self sound.
Another amazing song from the album is the one with Alice Russel : "I Don't Need This Trouble". Must have !
