Soul Cuts rave about new BEVERLY KNIGHT remix

August 25, 2011

Soul Cuts have posted a brilliant blog raving about Tomo’s remix for Beverley Knight’s Apparently Nothin’ (released Monday).

Under the headline “This New Beverley Knight Remix Is Definitely Something”, they write:

“One of the more interesting covers on the album was Apparently Nothin’, originally on the undisputed classic Road to Freedom album by The Young Disciples. Bev’s take, with new Hidden Beach vocalist Glenn Scott, mixed things up a little with more than a hint of D’Angelo’s classic Left & Right. With the cut about to be released as a single, soul remix supremo, Neil Thomson has had a go at it under his Regrooved banner and created a blissed out soulcut of the highest order, giving the track a languid, yet fresh, vibe that surpasses Bev’s original. While the album take will be of some interest to the serious soul consumer, this Regrooved version deserves the connoisseur’s undivided attention.”

5 stars for ELECTRIC EMPIRE + new interview!

July 19, 2011

The buzz continues to build for Electric Empire’s self-titled debut album, with this fantastic 5 star review from soulandjazzfunk.com!

Writes Bill Buckley:

“Different commentators have tried to come up with reference points to Electric Empire’s sound and most keep coming back to the Stevie Wonder/Al Green axis. And yes, there’s a distinct flavour of both maestros about their work. The most obvious Stevie reference comes on the complex ‘Then It’s Over’. On it, there’s a lovely wandering clavinet weaving in and out of Dowlut’s vocal as he caresses lyrics that speak of “other galaxies” and “never-returning shooting stars”… all very Wonderous. There’s more Stevie (circa ‘Songs In The Key Of Life’) flavours on ‘Have You Around’, ‘Brother’, ‘I Just Give It’ and ‘Life Again’ , while the big Al Green homage is the already and rightly big, ‘Baby Your Lovin”. It’s so good that it would standout on any album… here, it’s just one of many great tracks.”

ELECTRIC EMPIRE album review + watch clip from last night’s show!

July 5, 2011

Check out this BRILLIANT review of the upcoming Electric Empire album over at Soulcuts.

Soulcuts write:

“…There’s little doubt that Stevie’s shadow looms heavy over the whole Electric Empire album. Some critics may view the preponderance of Stevie-styled cuts as simple pastiche, but I would argue that the songwriting, musicianship and production are so strong that, although comparisons are inevitable, the album stands alone as a compelling collection of timeless soul cuts. Indeed, I’ve always been of the opinion that Stevie’s unique take on soul music actually created a genuine sub-genre. If you accept this idea, then Electric Empire can be enjoyed on its own indefatigable merits.”

Loving that!
