Album Review

For his second album under his own name, New Zealand-born, London-based producer/remixer Mark de Clive-Lowe chose to go free of genre restrictions, with the result that there's not one of those catchy sub-subgenre names that the listener can use to easily categorize it. The only unifying element are the gloriously kitschy '70s-style synth interludes that fade up in between the proper songs, the best use of a vintage ARP synthesizer since Stevie Wonder's heyday. The songs themselves run from R&B slow jams like "Quintessential" (with longtime collaborator Abdul Shyllon on lead vocals) to hip-hop-influenced grooves like "Traveling," with a rap by the Roots' Capital A. Diva-girl Bembe Segue takes most of the vocals, and while she's not a particularly distinctive singer, her flirty high-register style is perfect for bubbly dance-pop beats like "Syndrome." Throughout, de Clive-Lowe's vintage synth, clavinet, and electric piano sounds provide a unifying element to the varied songs, giving Tide's Arising a musical through-line that keeps it from sounding scattershot.

Customer Reviews

Headed towards greatness?

Poster boy of the UK nujazz scene shows us a hell of a time with tide's arising. A little wearing at times I feel we will see a much refined version of de lowe's vision in the near future.

Nice Project!

There are four serious cuts on this album! Heaven, Quintessential, Syndrome, Traveling. Some of the most unique fresh music I have heard. Treat yourself.

Great Album
