Deep Street Soul

Hold On Me

Freestyle Records

Released: 25th June 2012 | 2 track funk single

Without doubt, there are only a handful of contemporary bands who can really nail the authentic, gritty and soulful feel that so many groups attempt to create, and Australia's Deep Street Soul are one of those outfits leading from the front.

One vital factor in creating genuine 21st century funk & soul is having top notch vocalists with the prerequisite spirit of real soul and DSS suffer an embarrassment of riches in that respect – having both Mighty May Johnston and Shirley Davis strut their stuff on either side of this cracking 45 single.

Taken from the recent DSS album 'Look Out, Watch Out' (FSRCD092), the A side 'Hold On Me' was screaming out for release as a kicking 7 inch single, as May and the band push the big funk button on this original composition. We suggest you wallow in the chunky horns, diamond hard drums and growling organ riffs and let your knees be knocked bandy by Warren Hunters thundering bass lines!

Residing on the flip side is DSS's respectful take on a quite recent modern funk classic, namely Charles Bradley & The Bullets 'This Love Ain't Big Enough (for The Two Of Us) Shirley Davis puts a feminine slant on this super hard funky soul gem, and rounds off Deep Street Souls' latest addition to the modern funk lexicon.

"Funky, funky funky! Deep Street Soul tear into a heavy, explosive barrage of funk on this killer 45. If you don't get steam-rollered by the thrilling A side, the cover of Charles Bradley & The Bullet's"
DJ Philster, Funkalicious.co.uk
