Henri-Pierre Noel - One More Step: Deluxe Edition

Henri-Pierre Noel

One More Step: Deluxe Edition

Wah Wah 45s

Released: 20th May 2016 | 14 track funk album

Three years on from the hugely anticipated re-issue of this much sought after tropical funk masterpiece, Wah Wah 45s are proud to announce the release of a Deluxe Edition of Henri-Pierre's One More Step, now featuring bonus remixes for the first time in one package.

On moving to Canada from his original home of Haïti, pianist and singer/songwriter Henri-Pierre Noel brought with him much of the tropical island's influences. The Kompa Funk sounds of his homeland, along side contemporary North American jazz and disco, ran throughout Henri's debut, Piano, re-released by Wah Wah 45s in 2012, and the follow up dance floor friendly One More Step - both albums having been originally released on very limited private presses and since become holy grails of the back music scene.

Henri-Pierre Noel is an incredibly versatile musican who uses the piano in a very percussive and syncopated way, almost like a drum. This particular technique naturally brings disco and afro-funk elements into hisunique brand of foot friendly fusion.

Re-mastered from the original multi-track tapes and featuring seriously foot friendly cuts like Afro-Funk Groove and Latin Feeling, One More Step is finally available along with hugely popular remixes from French disco don The Reflex, who hits all the right notes with his club focussed re-workings of Funky Spider Dance and Back Home... Sweet Home.

Je vous remercie une fois de plusMonsieurNoel!
