Default The Herbaliser


With strains of Jazz/ Hip Hop and Breakbeat The Herbaliser (an English duo) have been making great albums since the mid 90s and have worked with Jean Grae, MF Doom and Roots Manuva. Their music while never abrasive is always a little off centre and each album sounds different.

Here is a great retro Beats and Breaks track:


and here is one from their latest album Take London:


Recommended albums:

Blow Your Headphones.
Take London.

Very Mercenary's probably my favourite Herbaliser album: both the collaborative and 'solo' tracks on that record are awesome. From the amusing intro, Jean Grae's amazing performance on Mission Improbable to the film-inspired instrumental: The Missing Suitcase. Wall Crawling Insect Breaks is a class track which definitely rivals Coldcut in the cut-up stakes.
