Baby Charles - Hardman To Please (Grant Phabao Remix)

Baby Charles Grant Phabao Remix

During the last two years Brighton based deep funk sensation Dionne Charles has risen to quite a cult status.

Her first album with her band Baby Charles was among the finest things to happen in Funk in 2008, supported by the likes of Snowboy, Keb Darge, Jazzman Gerald, Monk One, Andy Smith and Mark Lamarr... we even managed to play their Artic Monkeys cover in an afro mix on the ParisDJs podcast!

She also appeared, among others, on Black Grass' fantastic III album (Catskills Records), on The New Mastersounds instant classic LP Plug & Play (One Note Records) and more recently on Soopasoul's superb Twin Stix album (Jalapeno Records).

"Simultaneously tight but loose, heavy but soulful and dirty..." Baby Charles' funky music is indeed beautiful and thanks to Nick @ Record Kicks we're proud to present this soulful ska dressing of Hardman to Please by the french dubmeister, Grant Phabao! Baby Charles are currently in the studio recording the new album which is expected for March 2010. They plan to blast everyone out of this cosmos with a whole bunch of new killer songs. We hope there will be another song to reggae-remix in there so that a nice Baby Charles reggae 45 might be pressed in the future...

Very good stuff! happy to hear that Baby CHarles is working on a follow up album! Don't forget to check Dionne's excellent performance on the recent Shaolin Temple Defenders album. She shreds it on the female vocalist tribute called 'Message to the Soul Sisters'!
