Track 1 – “The Magic is Gone” …listen to this and you’ll disagree with the title. In-ya-face uptempo funk with a modern lick. Now this starts out heavy… the drums are tough and it’s somewhere in the 130 BPM region. Then the vocal lands and it all seems to smooth out without any change to the drums. A lot of music these days is either high energy or chilled out.. this combines the too well. something in part down to the vocal, which would be as equally at home on a 60’s funk record as it would on a nu-soul/jazz track.
Track 2 – Lovely little Hammond reprise. Works well in the mix with the OG. Allowing DJs a little extra creative free range.
Track 3 – And for the Broken Beat Headz there’s a Renegades of Jazz remix to boot. And as I mentioned before, the vocal lends itself micely to their style.
Out 3rd Feb on 7″ + Digital

Posted my main man Suono Got Soul :)
Fresh from Mocambo Records…
Rising star Caroline Lacaze first came to light on The Mighty Macambos‘ album “The Future Is Here”. And she’s in highly credible company – Not satisfied with gaining a reputation for making serious dancefloor Funk, The Mighty Mocambos have also produced successful releases with the likes of Afrika Bambatas and Charlie Funk.
Now debuting on her own release, Caroline brings us “L’etrange”, a lovely piece of French Funk.
Straight from the intro, the drums say Funk but with the a touch of Hip Hop Soul… almost like Kenny Dope produced it.
96 bpm of sophisticated Funk… and even better still this comes with an instrumental so the DJ’s among you can do live edits, juggling and extended versions when you drop it.
“L’etrange” is out now on 45 and her album “En Route” will be out in the spring.
