Track Of The Day #1: The Fantastic Negrito – ‘Hump Thru The Winter’

My first Track Of The Day is the Fantastic Negrito’s ‘Hump Thru The Winter’.  Xavier Dphrepaulezz was a major label R’n’B in the 90’s, nowadays he makes Blues Rock under the Fantastic Negrito moniker.

‘Hump Thru the Winter’ a great Blues Rock stomper, opening with Dphrepaulezz’s rasping about struggling to pay the bills. In the verses Dphrepaulezz speaks of his struggles as a black musician. Yet in the chorus he talks about working a ‘little stronger, a little harder’. The relentless stomp of the percussion gives the song an attitude which is not often present in popular mainstream Blues Rock. This feels fresh and exciting, I am looking forward to hearing more from the Fantastic Negrito.
