We’ve heard lots this year from Detroit soul man PAUL RANDOLPH. Sophisticated soulsters loved his collaboration with Kathy Kosins while his own long player – ‘In the Company of Others’ found lots of favour amongst soul collectors with adventurous ears. Yep, it was a complex, complicated affair but one cut really hit home; it was ‘Heavy’ a homage to Gil Scott Heron and in its “heavy” mix (that’s right) it won plenty of radio plays.

Well if you liked that one you may wish to check out a new set of ‘Heavy’ mixes courtesy of Ashley Beedle and Ramrock Records. There are plenty to choose from each with an eerie spaced-out vibe that brings a certain attraction. Mr Scott Heron would approve of them all!
