DNA is the massive new album from Reggie B, and it’s filled with galactic future funk. Heavy beats hold down the grooves behind deep and spacey synths and wobbly bass-lines while the melodies are driven by neo soul vocals. The lead-off track, “Do You Wanna Ride” is a California-style joint with B. Bravo all over it. And the funkadelic sound meets Khemetic lyrics as Reggie B explores some lofty ideas, space-travel-meets-ancient-Egypt themes, which he revisits in songs such as “Martian Man” featuring DJ Spinna. But DNA isn’t all fantasy and philosophy: this record has emotion too with standout songs like the Prince-esque “Just Enough,” and the sweet electro soul ballad “Your Ways.”
