Chances are if you have a body, a pair of ears and access to some kind of listening device, you’ve at least tapped a foot to ‘Shine’ from Soul Clap and Nona Hendryx. Pure authenticity and vocal integrity is provided in bucket loads by Nona (ex-Labelle member and purveyor of funk for more than 40 years), while the production maintains Soul Clap’s sublime freshness.
Increasing your marimba intake by 200% with two additional versions, Hot Toddy gives exotic plushness with a diversified rhythm section and melodic bottom lines that lightly entwine, shimmering in the light of Nona’s voice. Scott Grooves brings the funk, with an upfront bassline and extra JB-style horns on his ‘Horns Dub’, while the ‘Deepah Dub’ takes a housier approach while still keeping the horn stabs. Scott finishes off with an ‘Echopella’ of Nona’s vocals recorded from the International Space Station. This remix package is everything you would want, and then some.
