From minute one, it’s obvious that ‘He Is The Voice I Hear’ is something extraordinary. Glimmering piano sets the stage until an insistent violin gives way to a rollicking disco bass line — and then we’re off. It’s the rare work that feels truly greater than the sum of its parts; once it’s over, you’ll be counting down the minutes until you hear the whole thing again. He Is The Voice I Hear is dedicated to the voices who inspired The Black Madonna to become who she is: Frankie Knuckles, Larry Levan, Arthur Russell, Walter Gibbons, Loleatta Holloway. Says Stamper: “I wanted to make a record that returned to the core values of dance music. In a lot of ways, I don’t think I’m doing something new with this record. I’m doing something old.” No listening link with this one, only the assets.
