Greece’s funk maestro is back with an incredible new album, Soul Shower. Dimitris Tentinis is Mister T., a mainstay of the Cold Busted label having released seven previous albums through the respected imprint. His varied discography touches on hip hop, soul, dub, and electronic music – but funk is the consistent thread tying together all of Mister T.’s productions. His cuts have become staples in the DJ sets and playlists of underground tastemakers, and there’s also recognition from the mainstream — Mister T.’s music has appeared in brand campaigns from the likes of Capital One, Walmart, Nike, and Hennessy. The funk maestro is on the rise, and Soul Shower is his latest milestone.
Soul Shower opens gently with “Nostalgia for Bent,” featuring a lithe boom-bap beat, tinkling piano, pulsing bass, and a magical female vocal. Things get more layered on “Chain Reaction” as the beats are bolder, the music denser, and the vocal snippets strategically deployed. Other highlights include the heavy horn section funk of the title track; “Groove Analyzer” and its retro junkyard vibes; and the afrobeat/hip-hop mind-meld of “Felabration.” Once the album ends with the dub benediction of “Life In Lockdown,” the listener will have experienced a whole world of inventive grooves. Join Mister T. for a Soul Shower — a shower of dope vibes for the soul.More information
