ALBUM REVIEW:Matt Henshaw feat. ReggiiMental “Can’t Hold Back”

Label: Ilsonowl records
Release date: 15.11.2010

Matt Henshaw is a scrappy, floppy haired young lad who you might be afraid of, if you caught him with his hood up outside your local off licence.

Until he opens his mouth. And then, there are no words. Except Bob Marley meets Motown soul and Matt Henshaw was born. More or less.

Already being compared to Mark Ronson and claimed as being the missing link between Jamie T and Mike Skinner, this collaboration with ReggiiMental might be the prototype for an entirely new genre. Treats such as “Can’t Hold Back” and “The Deepest Cellar” mixes perfectly modern hip hop with Henshaw’s classic silky tones. Bonus track “Naughty Girls” boasts more of an indie feel, giving the album a dexterous mixing of genres and introducing what Henshaw describes as “hip-hop the new sound of Mod …B-Boy Soul”.

Definitely one to watch.

This kid’s not one to hold back.

Rating: 4/5
