EP no’1. is the debut from Root and Groove Element.

This four track double 7″ showcases Root & Groove Element’s best tracks so far. “Whatever Happened To Honesty” and “Moving On” will be sure to bring back happy memories of the late 80s / early acid jazz / nu-Brit soul scene with their Brand New Heavies / Young Disciples style soul-jazz / jazz-funk grooves. A killer. “Soul Food” has an early 80s 2-step soul vibe to it – another wonderful track. Lastly “Sunshine” is a laid back easy-like-a-Sunday-morning soul-jazz shimmy with a hint of Roy Ayers.

Listen to “Whatever Happened To Honesty” here:

” Highly recommended” – Fitzroy da Buzzboy (soul survivor magazine).

“I LOVE IT!!! especially “Whatever happened to honesty” great tracks & great production!!!” DJ Ease (Nightmares on wax) .
