Review: For her latest long player, Tokyo Dawn informs us that this Swedish-Canadian soul singer and 'first lady of modern funk", opens up wider than ever before. We'll assume they mean musically, and if so, they couldn't be more right. In a big leap from her Art Slave album, this newie sees her collaborate with a pan-international selection of artists hailing from a as far afield as Detroit and Senegal. Highlights include the bonkers stop-start romp of "Just Like Magic", the otherwordly synth-jazz of "One" and the glistening, slow (e)motion overload of "All The Funk I Need (Stray mix)".
Review: Ohh my days!! Collaborations don't come much hotter than the S man himself teaming up with fellow heavy hitter Sidney Sampson. With the very fitting lead vocal line "This is house music", that pretty much sums up the power riff bomb that 'Flashing Lights' is. What with genres and pigeon holes being so last year, the house music legends lay down a peak-time onslaught of the senses and ear drums with rolling percussion, meaty bottom end and a stadium sized lead riff. Whether your a house, trance, electro, or progressive DJ.. This could easily grab tune of the night status. A priceless weapon to be packing in the wallet over the coming months!
