Artist: Good Voodoo Society
Title: So Much More (The Mixes)
Label: Good Voodoo Music
Style: Soulful House
It is with great pleasure that we introduce Good Voodoo Music – a new label from a diverse collective with an emphasis on proper musicianship. Good Voodoo has a passion for all things deep and soulful, but draws from influences way beyond the dance music sphere, so expect every release to be a lush blend of different global flavours.
The in-house musicians, Good Voodoo Society, spearhead the inaugural release on the A-Side with their summery and vocal interpretation of So Much More.
Then Adam Shaw does his thing with a remix and a dub. Already earmarked as one to watch and destined for greatness by none other than the Grammy nominated boss of Toolroom Records, Mark Knight, Adam Shaw is a rising star of the house music world having released on Toolroom Records, New State Music and Mau5trap to name but a few. He has also remixed the likes of Deadmau5 and Kris Menace.
Off The Cuff’s mix sees them team up with saxophonist John McGough, who has previously played live with Carl Cox. Off The Cuff have previously released on Lost My Dog, Defected In The House, and Sidetrak among others.
Good Voodoo leader Dominic Nelson-Ashley takes a bow with his Tribal Vybes remix. His illustrious music career has seen him regularly creating new dance music that blends organic African and Latin rhythms and instrumentation with electronic music in places as diverse as Freetown, Sao Paulo, Havana, New York, Buenos Aires and Sydney.
His music and productions have been heard on Universal Records, Pleasure Republique, Megablock records, Big Dada/Ninja Tune, Sky TV, BBC Radio, and Channel 4.
The remainder of the release showcases two guys with over 40 years of experience of the scene between them, DJ Liam Dunning and Born 2 Groove (Karl Goodison).
