As one half of legendary drum n’ bass/nu jazz/broken beat pioneers 4Hero, Dego has helped craft a cadre of avant-garde-ness that has spawned numerous imitators and admirers. He has been perfecting the combination of vintage soul arrangements and futuristic dance beats for years, but I keep tryin’ to tell y’all that the future really is now! Look no further than A Wha’ Him De Pon?, a glimpse into the mind of a man on a constant path towards the perfect groove. Listening to this gives me a greater appreciation and keener ear for his contributions to groups like 4Hero, DKD, Silhouette Brown, and 2000black.
