Songs by Atlanta’s Obeah are a mixed bag. For all the positives we hear in the song “True”––its catchy beat, unusual sounds––we’re also distracted that the music track is mixed too high for Obeah’s flow to dominate. We like the sound textures (bells, wood blocks) and his whispery vocals on “Life Is But A Dream,” but are again distracted that his voice has to do battle with bass tones that are continually overmodulated. Best is “All That I Need,” featuring a female who brings an old-school flavor and a unique wavery effect that sounds weirdly cool. Above all, the song’s distinctively beefy organ tone is a winner. We urge Obeah to get with a producer-engineer who can make it all come together.
