Herbman 12-inch

Ropeadope

This 12-inch holds three songs, or more accurately, one song mixed in three different ways by DJ Logic. There’s the “Herbman” Strut, the Dub, and the a cappella version. The strut moves with the strongest rhythm, a sort of Dr. John meets Leon Redbone swing mixed with a minimal hip-hop beat and scratched out rhythms sliding around minimal in the background. the Dub hits a smooth groove on the flipside, spacing out like some Ball Of Confusion remix, but with more rhythm, and the final mix, while it may be great for DJ mixing, leaves a little unwanted emptiness thanks to the lack of music.
