Originally released in 2008 ‘In Search of Hope’ was the second solo album from Kaidi Tatham and the first under his own name. Recorded in his flat in South London, it intitially came out on the Japanese label Freedom School and gained grail like status, so much so that original copies command sky-high prices. This new issue finally brings it back to the masses and reminds us what a forward thinking talent Kaidi was: the sounds here are timeless blending all of his influences and loves into a perfectly rounded eleven-track gem of a record. ‘Swift Inspiration (Quick Kid) is undeniably Tatham, the multi-paced ‘Do What You Gotta Do’ works in ways it shouldn’t while the more linear ‘Could I Ever Know’ has the ghost of ‘Red Clay’ running through it. The punchy ‘I’m So Amazed’ is a cosmic funker, the angular boogie of ‘Simiya’ shines while the popping, uptempo ‘On A Vibe’ contrast with the deep bass drive broken beat of ‘These Things Will Pass’. The title track(s) bookend this brilliant album that will appeal to many. Super stuff.
