One thing you have to know about me (if you don’t already): I LOVE hippos. So when I saw that Pan Amsterdam and Damu the Fudgemunk had a new project out and one of the accompanying videos was called Hungry Hippo, my interest was piqued.
I’ve been a casual fan of both Pan Amsterdam and Damu the Fudgemunk, particular Pan-Am after his 2018 album, The Pocket Watch (‘Landlord Elijah‘ is my tune!). EAT is a 14-track album showcasing not only Damu production quality but some trumpet playing from Pan-Am.
Perceiving the world in terms of taste, EAT is musically wistfully joyous and lyrically playful, a full menu with Pan Am your maître d’ and Damu the chef du cuisine. Damu’s beats are deep, warm, melodic and progressive, a perfect playground for the duality of Pan Am’s beat poetry and Leron’s caressing trumpet, which as always is a persona in itself.
