about

Big drums? Check. Slinky groove? Check. Huge horns? Check. A killer vocal from one of the voices of her generation? Oh yes! 'Take You Home' is Lack of Afro doing what he does best - combining the funk-filled old & the soul-soaked new to devastating effect. On the vox is Grammy award winner Joss Stone, delivering the kind of vocal that Aretha herself would be proud of! On the flip-side is 'Fires Glow' - one of the most popular tracks from the new album 'Hello Baby', and featuring a rising star of the soul & mod scene: dancer, model, singer (and LOA Records recording artist) Emma Noble. Combining infectious piano by George Cooper, upfront drums courtesy of Lack of Afro himself, some Burt Bacharach-esque horns from Jamie Cullum band-member Rory Simmons & an insanely catchy melody, 'Fires Glow' is simply soulful music at its finest.

The dancefloor stakes are raised by Brighton-based producer, Tru Thoughts alumni (& now LOA Records recording artist) Flevans, who evokes the kind of meaty, beaty, big & bouncy vibe that he's known for. Featuring trademark chromatic bass lines and cheeky production flourishes, this track has been scientifically certified 'impossible to stay still to'. Try it & you'll see. Look out for the new Flevans album 'A Distant View' coming very soon to LOA Records.

At the opposite end of the spectrum comes the Pocketpoet remix, who takes the track in a distinctly downtempo direction. Hazy arpeggiated synths & fluorescent textures combine to create a mix clearly illustrating this young producer's huge promise. His debut album is coming soon to LOA Records. One not to miss for sure...

'Take You Home' is the second single taken from the critically acclaimed new album 'Hello Baby', a genre-busting colossus of an record that has received huge radio support from the likes of Jo Whiley (BBC Radio 2), Craig Charles (Radio 2 & 6 Music), Lauren Laverne & Cerys Matthews (both 6 Music). The Lack of Afro live band were also invited to Media City by Craig Charles in May to do a live session for his Funk & Soul show, with Adam also contributing one of the most popular 'Trunk of Funk' mixes that the show has ever had! 'Hello Baby' has also broken into the Top 10 of the iTunes R&B/Soul charts in over 17 countries worldwide.
