The Downtown Rulers Club - EP (Digital Single, Paris DJs, 2014)



The Downtown Rulers Club EP

The Downtown Rulers Club tips its hat to a vast genealogy of soul music from hard-hitting JB funk, to classic Motown, and more recent neo-soul. The brainchild of Beto Martínez (guitar) of critically acclaimed Brownout and Grammy Award-winning Grupo Fantasma, and Alex Chávez (vocals and B3 Hammond) - seasoned member of both the Austin and Chicago music scenes - The Downtown Rulers Club’s stripped down approach uniquely colours contemporary soulful grooves with vintage grit and flare. Their debut EP was recorded by Martínez at his Leche House home studio and highlights his own signature 'tighten-up' guitar work, Chavez’s song-writing, and features Greg Gonzalez (bass), Jeremy Bruch (drums) - formerly of What Made Milwaukee Famous - and the powerhouse arrangements of the Grupo Fantasma horn section. A soulful mix of ballads, throwback grooves, and funk-inspired vamps, the EP’s four tracks are sure to please the likes of true soul music fans.
