Review by Matt Jost
Artist: Seven f/ Talib Kweli
Title: Go Slow
Label: Nation Music

Seven is Switzerland's premier soul singer. He entertains close ties to the domestic hip-hop scene, but on "Go Slow," off his 5th studio album, he reaches over the Atlantic for American co-signing. Talib Kweli blesses the track (in all versions) with a well written 16 fitting the theme of slowing one's hectic life down. The original is an engaging mid-tempo afffair with accentuated guitars and just enough bump to wake you up out of your daily grind. The Hustle Heart Remix by Shuko & M trims some weight and attaches wings to it, enabling it to reach the nirvana Seven envisions: "I wish everything could freeze / just one day all alone with me and peace." And then there's the 4:06 billed as DJ Premier Remix. Primo dips the song sparingly into g funk and sprinkles it with James Brown scratches. His contribution doesn't overpower the single, it simply adds an extra touch to an already worthwhile venture. Available at iTunes.
