Soul Academy – Give It

May 31, 2015 in Singles

Soul Academy Give It Haute MusiqueLast one for tonight, and we end with some very smooth deep grooves courtesy of BiG AL’s Haute Musique imprint.

In its Original form, Give It can safely be filed under “deep and soulful” with its crisp beats, wukka-wukking funk geetar, parping sax and soulful, echoing “give it” male vocal that does battle with a second, spoken vocal (“making a record’s kinda like building a house… what it needs is a solid base… and if it’s gonna stand the test of time, you gotta dig real deep”). The ‘bass’ pun doesn’t really work written down but you can see what they did there I’m sure!

Remix-wise, Jero Nougues takes us into blissed-out, ‘Ibiza sundown/sun-up’ kinda territory, while Deephope get down n’ funky, but the cream of a fine crop to these ears is BiG AL’s own Rub-A-Dub mix, a deep-as-you-like gem that, funnily enough, has an almost UKG-ish feel in the beats department.
