TEMPTATIONS… NEW MEMBER?

It was only this summer when the mighty TEMPTATIONS announced that they’d recruited a new member. For some time the veteran group had operated as a quartet, but in June they announced the addition of  Mario Corbino as lead singer, restoring the classic five piece line up. US sources tell us that for a month or so now, the band have once again been working as a foursome – preparing […]

SENSUAL PLEASURES….

Listeners to Jazz FM and the more savvy, more eclectic jazz and soul stations might well have come across a lovely, insidious little tune, ‘Parts Of Me’ credited to POETIC LEESTAR. The track defies categorization. It’s a spoken word piece that rides a neo-soul groove with a jazzy undertow but it’s insistent and hypnotic with a very special atmospheric – one those (rare) tunes that just grabs at you! Poetic […]

MR MIDNIGHT… IN THE MIX

‘Mr Midnight’ was one of the key tracks on RAHEEM DEVAUGHN’S ‘What A Time To Be in Love’ album; indeed it was released as a focus single.  Now, as is the modern way, the track wins remix status courtesy of BEE BOY$OUL (Bee Boy-Soul) who calls the remix (appropriately) the “Winter” mix. We’re told that this new mix comes from a bigger DeVaughn/Bee Boy collaboration – ‘Raheem DeVaughn presents Bee […]

ALL YOU NEED IS LUV….

If you’re looking for a fresh, new(ish) dancer to get your New Year party (are we still allowed ‘em?) started, then may we point you towards a crisp, soulful house beater simply called ‘Luv’ from the equally simply named J.SOUL. Sadly we don’t know too much about J.Soul nor indeed the sweet and soulfully voiced female who fronts ‘Luv’ – she’s anonymous on our copy. What we do know is […]

NIGHT RHYTHMS….

Latest offering from Australian high-energy mixer/producer RAY ISAAC is a rework of DEBARGE’S ‘Rhythm of the Night’. The tune was always catchy if a little lightweight and good ‘ole Ray adds an even lighter touch as he cranks up the pace. It’s out now if you fancy a little kitchen disco froth!

ONE THAT GOT AWAY!

SYMPLI WHITNEY (Whitney Marshall who hails from Springfield Massachusetts) has been on the UK/Euro soul radar since 2017. She’s released an impressive slew of singles, EPs and a couple of albums. Her last outing was last autumn’s oddly titled EP ‘45th Chapter’. That title was never fully explained but the 3 tracker impressed with its downtime music  which Sympli called “a soundtrack to take the listener through various stages of intimacy”. Prior […]

CASTELLA’S SO INTO YOU!

US songbird CASTELLA (Cathy Rebecca Crowell-Thompson, who works out of Long Beach, California) impressed last year with her ‘So Glad I Met You’ which betrayed her gospel roots with it’s soulful attack. That track is one of the focus cuts on Ms. C’s upcoming (January 7th) EP, ‘Let Me Love You’. The mini-album’s other big focus is her cover of the 1977 Atlanta Rhythm Section song ‘So Into You’ which […]
