Don’t know a lot about a “new” outfit – CJ’S Connection – save that they seem to be the brainchild of veteran radio presenter Cliff James and their single ‘I’m Serious’ has been winning massive air play on all the best soul stations… “Record of the week” no less on John Leech’s popular BBC Soul show.

In its original mix  ‘I’m Serious’ has a lovely old school SOS Band feel to it while the crisper, faster ‘Blackjack Mix” offers plenty of potential too. Both mixes are out now.
