Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

CLUTCHY HOPKINS (Meets Lord Kenjamin)

Music is My Medicine

2009-05-11

Multi-instrumentalist Clutchy Hopkins is still being promoted as a mystery man of sorts. If you seek information about him, you’ll find wild stories and unsubstantiated facts. Basically, he’s traveled the world, investigating consciousness and its relation to music. He’s studied under Zen monks in Japan, a Raja yogi in India, and a master percussionist in Nigeria, amongst others. Along the way, he’s made some great music, attempting to utilize the lessons he’s learned in the last thirty-some years. This is a typical Clutchy album. It’s full of drum ‘n bass beats, punctuated with organ, flute, electronics, melodica, and various home-made instruments. This is innovative and funky dub at its groovin’ best. Rebecca Ruth
