Elefant Traks presents the debut album from The Herd producer Unkle Ho
From a smoke-filled coffee house somewhere years from here comes the debut solo album from The Herd producer Unkle Ho titled Roads to Roma. This is a genuinely enchanting album of broken beats, drawing upon Unkle Ho’s panoptic approach to sampling and listening.
Eastern European gypsy wails mingle with Arabic harmonies whilst dancehall and hip hop rhythms jostle with folk, dub and indie backdrops to create the unique spirit of Roads to Roma. Like any true herdsman, Unkle Ho carefully shepherds his musical species without succumbing to the recklessness of mashed up genre leftovers.
Unkle Ho designed all the artwork, the website and the addictive barrel jumping flash game that accompany this release – see www.unkleho.com. An eye-popping animated video clip has been created for the first single Grace of the Guru by Tom Spiers (‘Love and Imitation’ – Infusion).
