Germany’s Mousse T (Mustafa Gundogdu) is one the brains behind Pepper Jam Records. The label is currently putting together a new compilation, ‘Funky Jams’, and as a taster they’ve just released an ab fab single, ‘If Walls Could Speak’. It’s a proper good ‘un – a classic, big slice of modern soul with a funk undertow. Mind you it should be – it was put together by ROB HARDT (who temporarily steps out of his Cool Million/Sed Soul role) and “homeless funkateer” FERRY ULTRA.
The pair throw all their experience at the tune and together they make it really special but the cherry on the cake is a superlative soul vocal from a new name to us – Tobago-born SHARON PHILLIPS. On the strength of her input on ‘If Walls could Speak’ I’d love to hear more. Let’s live in hope. In the meantime, enjoy ‘If Walls could Speak’ – hugely recommended!
Apologies for the poor quality picture above… this great tune deserves better!
