Soulnaturals reveal the next single from their swinging new album ‘Love Says Yes!’, unleashing a sun drenched slice of Summertime Soul, ‘I Got Sunshine (Enough For The World)’, featuring New Zealand based singer songwriter Jo Kelsey. ‘I Got Sunshine..’ is upbeat and soul party perfect, as Jo delivers a feel good vocal backed by an oh-so-funky soundtrack. More dance floor tailored remixes come from one of Scandinavia’s leading Soulful House maestro’s Opolopo, who delivers a classy jazz fuelled House groover, fuelled with infectious Vibes and sublime keys action. Moscow’s Nu Disco don, Valique blazes the cool factor with an easy downtempo foot shuffler and French producer Chicky Boom gets busy with the beats, injecting an urban dance flavour to round off this Soul fuelled feast!
‘I am very excited with this new Soulnaturals single package, Jo Kelsey is a pleasure to work with in the studio and a one take monster! I approached a selection of soulful DJs who I admire, and I love sending out the track parts and not knowing whats going to come back. This package was a sweet surprise, classy echoes of Stevie and Roy Ayers coming from Opolopo, Valique’s take instantly makes we want to go clubbing, and pulsating rhythms from Chicky Boom. This has inspired me to look into remixing the whole Soulnaturals album – stay tuned folks!’ – Tony Cannam / Soulnaturals
