SOULJAY – City Life EP
Remixes by MATTHEW RANDOM and KARL ALMARIA
Available exclusively on Stompy
Photo Records 011 is brought to you by London's own Souljay. James Gray has been a fixture in the London area scene for many years now. His brand of House music merges elements of funk and soul with deep tech house which is evident on this top notch EP. Soujay gives us two solid originals: City Life and Licks Way Back. Both encompass Gray's vision of delivering a superb blend of funky bass lines, vocal snips, hints of spoken word with the occasional organ and horn lines that blend harmoniously to create a deep house groover that will satisfy a variety of listeners. Solid remix duties come from Matthew Random of Quirk Burglars and Chicago's Karl Almaria. Mathew Random's remix of City Life is a stormer; Jackin, quirky rhythms and just the right amount of funk create a monster of a track that can work on many levels. Karl Almaria delivers a Chicago inspired version of Licks Way Back. Wicked horn and vocal arrangements create an overall good vibe on this sure to be summertime party pleaser.
