Elbert Phillips ft Terrance Downs - Feeling Good [Tambor Music]
This week's pick comes from Tambor Music, a label that's new for me although it has already been responsible for eight previous releases. There are six mixes in all with Elbert's Original Mix and Dub both treading a soulful, tribal path. Mike Dunn's Blackball Soulfrica Mix has made an instant impression and will definitely feature in an upcoming radio show before too long has passed. The blend of crisp rhythms and charming chords are really easy on the ear. Mike's Instrumental and TV Track retain the vibe of his remix while offering the opportunity for a little creativity during a set. The final mix is by no means the least as Kalim Shabazz produces a soothing, interpretation that keeps things soulful. Many will recognise the voice of Terrance Downs who has featured on a number of releases from Ananda Project over the years. His performance on vocals is simply amazing and the result is an engaging piece of music that I'm confident I'll enjoy revisiting for years to come. Highly recommended!
