Today we put the spotlight on Michael Treetop Voss, who played trumpet with The Poets of Rhythm all through the 90s. He just launched a new project, The Hifivers, a ten-piece soul combo from Germany, and cooked especially for Paris DJs this introduction made up from his past and influences, mixed with a few tracks from the first self-released EP from his new band (available on Juno). We'll be putting up soon a free track from the second EP The Hifivers have just finished recording so stay connected...
