Sassy, soulful, funky - original and deep, but above all bumping music that will stand up proud aside the classics of Erykah Badu, Madlib, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Jay Dilla, Sa Ra, even Nick Martinelli's eighties' production. Expect to see Pursuit Grooves more than hold her own amongst a too hot to handle select group of likeminded musics in 2010: dig the new breed of auteurs for hot buttered beats - Fly Lo, Kyle Hall, Ras G, Actress, Cooly G, Shuanise, Nosaj Thing, Illum Sphere…. TIP!
Real name Vanese Smith, the New Yorker has been pushing her hip-hop beats since 2006, putting out three full-lengths on her own What Rules Records label and also getting a track signed to Rush Hour's Beat Dimensions compilation. The addition of Pursuit Grooves to the Tectonic roster marks quite a stylistic shift from the darkened dubstep that we're used to hearing from the label, and Foxtrot Mannerisms is sure to surprise quite a few of its ardent fans. The album flows through cosmic soul, smooth tropical house, and even a bit of hip-hop proper on "Pressure" and the dubstep-tinged "Start Somethin", with Smith herself contributing vocals throughout.
