4UrbanArtists is music worth adding to your favorites list. Instrumentally the opening track "Real Drive" represents the groovy, fun electronica side of the CD. Volker Schwanke's programming is brilliant with funky, latin flavors added in. I really enjoyed the clever twists and turns that never lost sight of the beat. Cut 4 "More Than Bass" is a wonderful throwback to the cool jazz of the 1950's and 60's. The xylophone sound has a Thelonius Monk quirkiness paired with a Miles Davis' styled muted trumpet played by Jan Kunstmann. This is supported by a solid, walking bass by Schwanke, smooth guitar voicing by Martin Hillmann and trip hop loops evoking current sounds you'd hear on a New York subway.

Of the six tracks three are proper songs and two have vocalise all performed by Frances Livings. The three songs penned by Livings are "Come Closer", "Mr. Moon" and "Don't Treat Me Cool". My favorite is "Mr. Moon" because of the lyrics. It has the sensibility of a great pop song but avoids all the boring clichés. Sonically it's very cinematic and atmospheric. "Come Closer" is reminiscent of vintage Sade with all the seductive imagery of that artist at her best. I love the lyrics in "Don't Treat Me Cool" as well. They have the biting commentary of a Leonard Cohen meets Mose Allison, while wrapped in a track that feels like a very hip contemporary version of Peggy Lee's classic "Fever".

The 2 vocalise songs are the slow, funky trip hop "Sticky TraxX" where Livings' vocals are smokey, haunting and fun. I might add that on this track the voice is complimented nicely by Nolan Shaheed's solo trumpet work. The other one is "Real Bass" where the vocal part is almost horn like.
