Over the past few years we’ve regularly featured THE BAHAMA SOUL CLUB – a German-based soul-jazz outfit led by Oliver Belz… and Ollie and the gang have really been busy bees! In the space of a month we’ve enjoyed two intriguing and innovative singles – ‘Never Roam No More’ and ‘Ain’t Nobody’s Business’. Both featured archive samples – the first from John Lee Hooker, the second from Billie Holiday.
Their latest offering is the luscious, fruity ‘Mango’ which can be harvested on a new three track EP. The mini album features three mixes of ‘Mango’ … the original, a reggae flavoured ThrEES mix and, our favourite, The Club Des Belugas mix. This one is bosssa nova central and takes you right back to the golden days of Jobim and Gilberto. The lovely vocal (on all three mixes) come courtesy of Cuban singer Arema Arega who does a splendid job!
‘Mango’ is good to now on Buyu Records.
