My Heart Beats Like A Drum is Nathaniel Pearn, aka Natural Selfs glorious second solo longplayer for Tru Thoughts.
A more appropriate album title you would be hard pushed to find. Anyone familiar with the forward-thinking producer s dazzling way with a beat will testify that an instinctive, bold use of rhythm has always been at the very core of his music. And while his finely crafted rhythms continue to move and shake, on this mature, progressive and sonically evolved LP, you will hear a more emotional, human aspect rising to the surface in the melodies, compositions and vocal tracks (featuring French singer Elodie Rama), lending fresh depth to the Natural Self style.
On My Heart Beats Like A Drum, the funk and retro influences of last year give way to a more experimental palette of future-looking electronica and synth-based sounds, sitting happily alongside the likes of Paul White and Bullion (both of whom have recently done killer remixes of Natural Self tracks.) Interwoven with pristine multi-layered harmonies from Elodie Rama, and intriguing compositions, My Heart Beats Like A Drum is the sound of an awakening; an arrival at a state of maturity; of a man s emotional journey intersecting with his creative path and creating a ripple of inspiration that runs through the music on this album like a silver thread. “It was the start of something really special”, is how Pearn describes the experience of collaborating with and getting to know Rama, who is also revered as the singer with the extremely popular French hip hop group Hocus Pocus.
