Minnesota’s Dharma Child (Michael Vanasek) conjures a collection of soul/r&b songs with a higher consciousness message and grooves that eventually sneak up on you. “Waste of Time” is a perfect example of this: just when you might be getting a little bit restless with the song’s repetitious groove, you gradually realize how good the song is and how into it you are. “Feel So Good” is a nice introduction to his soulful vocal style. The addition of rapper Hereami elevates the song nicely. “Like The Sun” is a funk/rap song that delivers a fun, tropical vibe complete with steel drums. This artist’s groove-centric vision is laid-back, peppered with handclaps, and he’s in no hurry to knock you out with a catchy chorus.
