steppin' out *mark e merc dub*
Format: 12" Import
Mind Fair return with a deadly two-part interpretation of the Joe Jackson classic 'Steppin' Out'. For their latest Rogue Cat Sounds incarnation the Golf Channel mainstays have enlisted the indispensable talents of Charmaine Baines on vocals, Climax Blues Bands' Derek Holt (Bass &Guitar) and Alex Bradbury (Sundown Drive) on keys.
This slowed down, melting pot of Soca not Soca meets Lovers Rock, Reggae, Blues and soul is brought to you in two parts Part one deals mostly with the song, Charmaine's vocals sounding suitably dreamy and laid back whilst part two puts focus on the instrumental groove where the guitars, strings and Rhodes are the main attraction.
Mark E provides one of his Merc Dubs on the flip which takes a Afro rhythm meets beat down central then builds Intensively with Rhodes and a horn section breakdown to die for the Man is on form!
Essential music to step out to this summer for sure!
