Gil Scott-Heron, Arthur Verocai, Hawa, Ocote Soul Sounds, Batida and more.
Sad news this week with the passing of Gil Scott Heron, a true musical legend and one of the most insightful political & social commentators of his generation, at least he went out on a high note after a couple of decades of ups and downs with his last album, RIP. Arthur Verocai then kept the vintage vocals flowing, Brazilian style, with a dramatically arranged, killer slice of soul jazz. Hawa then graced us with some brand new retro vibes from her great debut album coming very soon on Favourite recordings, excellent. I then dropped some tropical vibes courtesy of pysch-inclined latin funksters, Octote Soul Sounds from their new album, Taurus. Batida, all the way from Angola then mashed up the dance with a crazy riddim & some great soulful African vocals.
