I can't remember the last time I've been this excited about having an album drop into my inbox!
Craig Charles meets one of the UK's finest funk and soul labels - north London's Freestyle - on this wonderfully crafted compilation representing all that's great about the modern funk and soul scene at the moment.
Craig joins the dots between huge, high energy funk bombs (The Apple's 'Killing') and gorgeous vocal driven soul (Lack of Afro's 'A Time'), with a splash of wicked nu-reggae riddims for good measure (Prince Fatty's 'Insane in the Membrane').
This is a perfectly balanced album demonstrating why Craig has become such a huge name over the last 10 years. With such a master and label coming together, this was only ever going to be awesome.
Already one of my compilations of the year, be sure to check it.
Out 26th November on Freestyle | freestylerecords.co.uk
