On 36 Seasons, Ghostface Killah taps into a vintage soul sound with ominous undertones, thanks to the production and bass work of Josh Werner. Werner’s electric and upright grooves on “Love Don’t Live Here No More” and “Emergency Procedure” are deep and funky, demonstrating the musical depth that we’ve come to expect from the Wu. With session player Wes Mingus contributing three tracks, the bass on this album takes a prominent role in the front of the mix.
