Potatohead People - Nick and Astro's Guide To The GalaxyBastard Jazz
Nick Wisdom and astrological, the Vancouver duo better known as Potatohead People have built an impressive resume over the years based on their brand of mid-tempo electro funk. "Nick and Astro's Guide to The Galaxy" is their full length debut after an assortment of EPs over the years. "Quest For Love" embodies their signature sound with a laid back groove and a swaying chorus. "Do My Thing" reflects their J Dilla influence with a neck snapping drum snare beat. Illa J, brother of the late great aforementioned producer jumps on this track and two others as well. "No Sleep Til MTL" is an 80s flavored boogie tune with jazzy trumpet phrasings. These guys have nailed the art of beats and rhythms and this engaging release is evidence of that.
