For the past 15 years, Do Right has given a home to groove music of all types - paying homage to vintage aesthetics but with our sights set on the future. The dancefloor is what we aim for: our releases are for music fans of all stripes. With that in mind, here's a 15th Anniversary sampler, six exclusive tracks to celebrate the diversity of our sounds
The EP starts with 'Harmagedon', a raw and heavy example of The Souljazz Orchestra doing what they've been doing best for the past decade - lyrical, cinematic horns and keyboard lines galore with a take no prisoners attitude. Up next is an early demo from The Soul Motivators - 'Tito's Revenge' captures the unbridled energy of our favourite 9 piece funk brigade. Then we arrive at 'White Nile', a meditative piece from The Atlantis Jazz Ensemble, the spiritual jazz side project of The Souljazz Orchestra.
The second half of the EP is kicked off by a downtempo look at Alister Johnson's beatmaking style, the futuristic and head nodding 'Afterglow'. Next is California-based Elle Olsun's AKA Salami Rose Joe Louis' enchanting Cryin' Over You - her cross-genre uniqueness is on full display here - the song effortlessly grooves between disparate sections, tied together by hypnotic instrumentation and Elle's charisma as a vocalist. Closing out the collection, we have our latest signing, Brooklyn-based Jill Peacock, with an uplifting bonus track from her self-titled EP. With an infectious melody and a heavy dose of pop sensibility, 'Sunshine' comes with a good vibes guarantee.
