South London multi-talented musician Reginald Omas Mamode IV comes through with a brand new album titled Where We Going? Following the release of some excellent projects such as his self-titled album in 2016 and Children of Nu in 2017, Reginald Omas Mamode IV is able to exceed expectations yet again with a soulful, tribal and raw new album.
With 15 tracks and about 35 minutes in length, this album is a woozy journey down Reginald’s soulful and funky musical mind. Singing throughout the record in a D’Angelo-like tone over some smooth, funky and rhythmic production, he is able to create a vibe that is engaging and incredibly catchy. Tracks like “In Search Of Balance” and “Rock Along” feature some Dilla-like drums, some hard-hitting beats and claps that make your head bob immediately. The bassline and groove on “Sister Rosé” is brilliant, with swirling keys in the background which add so much soul to the record. Moments like these are plentiful throughout, such as “Kand Zot Pou Apprendre,” sang partially in créole. The track is a meditative one in tone and vobe, with smooth grooves through keys and live drumming that guide the vocals through. It’s an awesome track with so much to offer musically. This is the case for the album as a whole. Where We Going? is a terrific project that deserves to be supported.
