Take some raw live drums and horns, throw in a killer funky vocal and stir with some dope bass and percussion, and whaddya get? 'Brand Nu' - the urgent and moving new Soopasoul vocal outing on Jalapeno. First heard as a standout track on the recent Jalapeno Funk album, 'Brand Nu' is already pricking up the ears of Soopasoul's peers, and exploding out of tastemaker playlists. Don't sleep on this rolling soulful funky live breaks jam Kicking off the 12'' is the killer vocal version featuring the talented Mississippi-born gospel newcomer, Nikeya, whose voice rings out in urgency across the soulscape. A sexy calling-your-partner-on-it funky number with extra breaks and horns flava, this is one helluva slinky ride with some killer drum breakouts. The Lack Of Afro remix follows with its spacey breaks, and more minimal mono broken-breaks production as the vocal calls out across the groove. One for the DJ's and funk heads is the old skool classic sounding bonus cut, 'Ya Lookin' Tight' is guaranteed to get the party started in a wicked horns, guitar and percussive J Funk style. Where the JB's and breaks worlds collide, this is nu organic funk that's working the dancefloor, especially on those hand-clapping breakdowns! Rounding off this impressive set is the housey Direckt remix, four to the floor groovement with those lush keys, vocal and horns.
