Daryl Hall & John Oates are an American musical duo. Known as one of the most popular duos in modern musical history, they achieved their greatest fame from the late 70s to the mid-80s, having a fusion of rock and roll with rhythm and blues that they dubbed “rock and soul”. They are best known for their six #1 hits on the US Billboard Hot 100: “Rich Girl”, “Kiss on My List”, “Private Eyes”, “I Can’t Go for That (No Can Do)”, “Maneater”, and “Out of Touch”, as well as many other songs which charted in the Top 40.
Since 1998, The Motet have inspired the world with their unique style of dance music. Over the course of nine full-length albums, they’ve traversed the lines between funk, soul, jazz, and rock and built a diehard audience in the process.
The Motet’s latest album, All Day, is sure to get fans talking with its lead single, “79,” a retro-futurist blend of lavish funk and soul that takes listeners back to the funky past of the 70s and 80s, while fortifying its pastiche with decidedly modern elements. The band’s latest release, “Draccus,” is a hazy, funk-fueled track filled to the brim with lush sonic details and powerful lyricism, juxtaposing grim verses with cathartic, hopeful choruses.
Primarily a storyteller, MF Tomlinson negotiates styles as varied as acid folk, soul, alt country & chamber pop to create a singular presence. He achieves this genre fluidity with the help of a close-knit group of collaborators he calls “the MFs, because they’re all very talented motherfuckers.”
MF Tomlinson has shared new song ‘The End Of The Road’. The London based songwriter will release his new album early next year, with ‘We Are Still Wild Horses’ set to land on February 17th via PRAH Recordings.
American/Nigerian singer/songwriter Sunni Colón has just unveiled his latest single “UNIVERSE 4 TWO” off of his ten track third album JúJú & The Flowerbug. The genre-defying artist seamlessly blends soul, afrobeat, samba, pop and jazz for a unique and whimsical sonic concoction with “UNIVERSE 4 TWO” being no exception.
In July 1970, James Brown unleashed a song that would go on to become one of his signature tunes: “Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine.”
The single caught the singer at a successful but tumultuous time. Hits throughout the ‘60s – including “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag,” “I Feel Good” and “Say It Loud – I’m Black and I’m Proud” – had made Brown one of the biggest names in music. The band recorded the original version of of “Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine” on April 25, 1970, at Starday King Studio in Cincinnati.
