Cornell Campbell – The Sun Stop Shining

This singer was one of my first influences singing and progression onto sound systems, cool vocals and harmonies. Growing up with older brothers and Jamaican parents always playing music, I was hit bound for music from birth.

Curtis Mayfield (Live) We The People Who Are Darker Than Blue

When it comes to vocal tones vision and expression, Curtis Mayfield just like a lot of the reggae artist i’d listen to  as a kid could reflect the current issues of bad times and make them sound so good real and true.

Project 16 – Beauty Comes EP (Liberationparty Records)

Liberationparty Records welcome the long-standing producer and vocalist Tempo O’Neil under his Project 16 pseudonym, for a new EP that draws on his long life of musical experiences having first started singing aged just 14. A storied life has seen this London based Luton-er become a member of the Saxon Sound System, key player in the acid house revolution, employee of Big City Records and producer with a long list of credits on numerous top labels. Always evolving his sound, he is as vibrant in the studio now as ever and still exploring new ground. Opener ‘It’s Alright It’s Okay’ is a gorgeous deep house track with warm, effervescing keys and bass and the sort of timeless vocal that immediately tugs at the heart strings. Pads swirl like cosmic clouds and add scale to this most heady groove.The superb ‘Take Sometime Out For Living’ then picks up the pace with a Larry Heard influenced house sound. Poised chords and sci-fi feelings permeate the crisp beats and more of O’Neil’s syrupy, heartfelt vocals add rich and irresistible layers. Closing out this fantastic EP is ‘When Beauty Comes’, with bleeping keys dancing about the scales as pained singing sucks you in and the weightless drums suspend you in space.

Project 16 – Beauty Comes EP (Liberationparty Records) Release: April 15th 2019 Cat No: LIBPR001 Format: vinyl, digital
