Press Release :
After the first 2 releases have gone sold out in 30 days, here we are with the third one for Record Kicks 45, the 7'' collection made up for clubs and dedicated to the best of contemporary funk, soul and dance-floor jazz music. It's with immense pleasure that we, at Record Kicks, present our brand new 45. We’ve taken the hottest singers in the UK right now international soul scene's young promise Alice Russel featured by little genius Quantic and on the other side we added the legendary Hammond combo James Taylor Quartet at is very best. Both on the same 45, what more could you ask.
"Somebody's gonna love you" is taken from Alice Russel debut album “Under The Munka Moon” and also features Quantic probably the most talented and prolific artists in the world of alternative dance music today. Alice has featured as guest vocalist on music for The Quantic Soul Orchestra, Max Sedgley, Nostalgia 77 and Bah Samba amongst others and has also performed live alongside Roy Ayers and supported Lonnie Liston Smith, Fela Kuti and De La Soul. Whether live or on record, she always performs with her trademark self assurance and sass. You really can't fake what Miss. Russell's got!
On the other side James Taylor Quartet certainly needs no presentation as they've been the leading lights in the Hammond, mod, rare groove & soul-jazz scenes for the past 15 years. Tough chicken (part I) one of the band grooviest cut ever, is taken from “Message From The Godfather” on Ubiquity Records. Produced by Snowboy, this is a hard-driving B3 Hammond groove with a heavy dose of funk, soul jazz, and "mod"ernist tinges proving that JTQ still have one foot planted firmly in the now and the other, just as firmly, somewhere south of 1970.
