K15’s smooth and synth-heavy production accompanies Emeson’s soulful voice and introspective lyrics exploring themes of love and self-fulfilment on Profusion’s inspiring debut album ‘Where Do I Begin?’ Released on First Word Records, they’re continuing the ever-growing legacy of neo-soul coming out of the UK at the moment. Often one of the traps collaborative albums fall into is a lack of diversity in regards to sound, but Profusion are able to keep things exciting throughout the project. Tracks like ‘Flying’ and ‘Amazing’ are bassline-rich, giving a funky, dance-like vibe to them. ‘Aida’ samples Gap Mangione’s iconic ‘Diana in the Autumn Wind’ (Also sampled on Slum Villages classic ‘Fall in Love’), while ‘A Long Walk’ has a reggae bump to it.
Overall a very soft and heartfelt debut project from this new collaborative duo.
