JEM STONE & KID CREOLE UNITE!

JEM STONE & KID CREOLE! BACK

 

I have always been a fan of August Darnell aka Kid Creole, and have been trying to get him on a track forever. Suddenly after the backing for Pack Your Trunk found its way to him via a very gorgeous Coconut it all came together! “It’s groovalicious!” he cried, and sent over some quite incredible vocals that to me hark back to his Cab Calloway roots, fused with the funk that only this man can deliver. You can read the extraordinary story about how it came together here - it’s all true, honest!

 

Out now on the equally legendary New York label Tommy Boy (the pioneering home of Africa Bambaataa, De la Soul and a zillion other definitive hip-hop and dance acts), it’s a dream come true! There are 4 delicious mixes to choose from, take your pick from funkin’ swing to jackin’ house.

 

Listen here and if you like it go ahead and buy it! (links on the Soundcloud page) That way the Kid might be impressed enough to let me do another collaboration!
