First Word enters 2017 with a bang: a 28-track album courtesy of Eric Lau (who produced Yussef Kamaal's 'Black Focus' LP). This, his third instrumental album, is a veritable tapestry of vibes, ranging through Hip Hop, Soul, Jazz, Funk & Brazilian beats. A mere taste into the genius production skills of London's Mr. Lau - essential!
