Producer: The Ummah
Album: The Love Movement
Label: Jive Records
Despite the peanut gallery begging for that “old Tribe sound back,” The Ummah returned to produce Tribe's swan song, The Love Movement. The first single, “Find A Way,” was an ode to friends with benefits, with Tip and Phife reprising their loverman roles.
The track cleverly samples Japanese DJ Towa Tei's “Technova,” taking a portion of the former DeeeLite member's vocals, and having Tribe create a melody over them.
And no, the high-pitched vocals under the chorus are not saying “You caught my heart for the evening,” but something in Japanese completely unrelated to the song—yet another patented Dilla trick.
