SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS Feat. JAY RAGS "Deep Not Deep"
The Project has seen light in 2009 with a driver version during WMC09, now the full package includes the Original one and two slammin’ remixes by Spiritual Blessings, and remixes by Gaty Lopez, Mark Di Meo and for the first time on GKF Yohan Esprada. The package includes also an interesting and useful Keypella.
SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS come back on Gotta Keep Faith with a single featuring the warm vocals of JAY RAGS. Last SB project on our label was "Kumasi", in 2008, an afro syncopate project that let feel people dizzy. During this time, the Italian duo worked hard on many remixes on GKF : Dom Navarra & Monique Henry "When you fall", Su Su Bobien "Praise Always", Logicalgroove & Savio Vurchio "You are the one", Grantorino & Sharon "What you won't do", Steve Paradise "Star in the blue", Eternal Sunshine "Beautify me", Raf'n'Soul "Man on the Prowl", Born to Funk "Get funky", MSadler + Arnaud D & MJ White "Sweet Innocence", Duoswing "Metrotendencies", Stephanie Cooke "Old Friend", Uncle James "The Godfather", Keith Thompson & Licksamba "Still feeling you", Eternal Sunshine "Because of you" and last awesome release of Groove Assassin & Tantra Zawadi "Love Seeker". That's not all. At the same time they spread some deep sound also for other labels like UNITED MUSIC (Spiritual Blessings Ft. Lisa Mayers), SOUNDMEN ON WAX (NYC Peech Boys, Barbara Tucker & SuSu Bobien), MIXED MUSIC SIGNALS (Spiritual Blessings, Roy Davis Jr.), KOLONKI (Terry Dexter), DEL (Spiritual Blessings Ft. Lisa Mayers), CABANA (Deep Y'All), SOBRA. A lot of stuffs. Actually their works out besides Groove Assassin & Tantra Zawadi are Lene Riebau "It feels better" on SOFITONE, Steven Stone Feat. Andrea Love "I Just can't stop" on SOULDELUXE RECORDINGS. And many more projects will see the light in 2011.
