The modern soul crew have a collective soft spot for the whole Cool Million/Sed Soul thing and the crowd will want to know all about the duo’s latest offering. It comes from a discovery of Rob Hardt’s …. mixed race soul artist MARIAMA CEESAY.
Ms Ceesay’s father is from Gambia and her mother’s from Germany and for the last few years she’s been singing her socks off in New York City. Back in Europe she’s hooked up with Rob Hardt for the uplifting single ‘Soon Ending Story.
The song’s original mix begins in sombre fashion eventually developing into a clipped pop/soul beater. The Robyn Lazlo remix turns the beats up and it’s easy to hear why this is the version winning the dance floor plaudits. The tune also comes is a slinky “Slowmo” mix and an all-in “Striped Mix”… and if you want more there’s a proper Cool Million mix in the pipeline.
