2009 debut from this talented female Hip Hopper, Speech Debelle has been acclaimed as a female counterpoint to Roots Manuva's brand of conscious Rap. But that's probably where the comparison ends, as Debelle's intimately honest lyrics are set to a backing of folksy downbeats and melancholy Soul set by a range of producers and collaborators including Lotek Hi-Fi, Plutonic Lab, Tunng and Michachu. There's a distinctively impassioned and authentically emotional delivery to Speech's debut that we reckon a lot of you will find both compelling and refreshing. Lead single 'Searching' is the ideal introduction to Speech's world, with a tale of life in a hostel set to acoustic guitar and syncopated to brushed jazz drums. Big Dada.
