EXCLUSIVE MIX –
V.S. VERSUS Takin’ Care of Business: PRESS PLAY TOGETHER
For the tenth (yes tenth) explosive episode in a series of mixes which pitch Velvet Sheep versus some of our favourite musical compadres…
Today it’s another blockbuster from my brother from a Brummy mother, Thomas “T-Bird” Jones, erstwhile drummer of the second city own rock & blues explosion Swampmeat, mainstay of the ColdRice collective and impressario of incendiary soul nights Takin’ Care of Business. Now that the birds are a-cheeping, the grass is a-growing, and the sun is a-shining and as Roy Ayers says “everyone likes the sunshine”, it’s time for a mix straight from the SS16 collection, straight up, route one soul. And as Prince Rogers Nelson passed last week, this one is streaked with doves tears, but totally lovesexy and long to purple reign over us.
This is what Teeb has to say about it:
“Jo and T-Bird putting the smooth grooves together to get you up to get down. Expect Isaac Hayes, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Carla Thomas, Ann Peebles, Darondo and many more.. You Dig?”
CHEERS T-BIRD! NOW LET’S PRESS PLAY TOGETHER…
