ASHANTI MUNIR is an indie soul singer who hails from Brockton, Massachusetts. She debuted in 2008 with an album called ‘Balance’. The set was one of that year’s best indie soul outings. Her sophomore set – was even better received. ‘Soul Of A Woman’ was a great little collection featuring amongst many fine soul sides a nifty modern soul gem, ‘So Smooth’. That tune ran and ran – also coming in three remixes from French R&B producer Wadz on one of his famed compilations
Since then Ashanti’s released more fine singles and the ‘Lady Munir’ long player but it seems that ‘So Smooth’ is the song that will define her. No wonder… it has all the key ingredients that define the very best modern soul dancers while her vocal is a throwback to the great songstresses of the Golden Era. … no pyrotechnics, no over the tops… just solid soul commitment!
Now… guess what? Yes… ‘So Smooth’ has just been remixed and once again it’s that man Colin Watson at the controls. Mr W’s timed the release of his new tweak perfectly – March 17th, which happens to be Lady Munir’s birthday! Wonderful…. let’s hope it helps take one of indie soul’s finest out into the mainstream.
