Tripped-out flows, broken beats, and lo-fi ambience in the home of the holy bass, Sensational is back with his fifth full-length and first release for Quatermass. As session man Torture for the Jungle Brothers or Bill Laswell via label Wordsound, the man with a four-track and a drum machine created a new epic event in hiphop with his debut release Loaded With Power. Still wowing heads with his blunted, poetry-in-motion sickness, Sensational still rocks in the old school vein, playing all his sounds live, no samples allowed. Upgrading to an 8-track for his sophomore effort, Corner the Market, gave him greater flexibility along with his use of a real microphone instead of recording vocals through his headphones. Continuing on a trajectory for outer space with releases for Matador and Ipecac, the story now continues with Speaks for Itself, which destroys rules and boundaries, lodged somewhere in-between the sweet Rn'B of the masses and the radical, experimental avant-garde of the intelligentsia. In reggae, we were blessed with the maniacal genius of Lee Perry; in jazz, we had Sun Ra; and in hip-hop, no one even comes close to Sensational.
