The Lack Of Afro story began back in 2006 after excited word spread to the Freestyle Records offices about the sounds Adam was creating. Freestyle's head honcho DJ Adrian Gibson instantly signed him and released the stunning debut single 'Wait A Minute'. One of the labels fastest selling 12"s ever, it has gone onto sell massive numbers worldwide and appeared on countless compilations. The subsequent 2007 album 'Press On' fulfilled his early promise, with Adam playing nearly all the instruments himself. Hailed by iDJ magazine as 'one of the greatest albums of the modern funk era', the release passed into contemporary music folklore.
Now, in 2009 with 'My Groove, Your Move', Lack Of Afro dispels the difficult second album' syndrome without even breaking a sweat. Featuring vocal contributions from the amazing Roxie Ray (Dojo Cuts) on the suitably sultry numbers 'Closer To Me' and 'Tell Me What Happens Now'. In addition YouTube MC prodigies Wax & Herbal T bust out all over the slamming club killer 'International' and the superb 'Suspicious Glow'.
Whilst retaining the signature Lack Of Afro elements of deep dish drums, Nick Radford's rootsy guitar picking, ex Paul-Weller/Ocean Colour Scene Damon Minchella's thundering bass, spliced with intelligent use of rare samples 'My Groove, Your Move' is without doubt an even more confident, assured and mature collection than its predecessor. This album is a high octane, trail blazing and innovative venture that is comfortable with it's own past, our present and everyone's future...yes indeed.
