The long-awaited Stax Records debut, Pink Elephant, from stirring soul singer N’dambi is out this October. Produced by Leon Sylvers III (Shalamar, Blackstreet, Gladys Knight), the album’s lead single “Can’t Hardly Wait” is a biting chunk of scorching sarcasm, delivered in the commanding singer’s rich tone. Her opening complaint, “I don’t know why I keep f***in’ wit you,” perfectly expresses the inability to turn a listless love loose. She sings and performs her own drum beats on the irresistible “The World Is A Beat,” a percussive and pointed lament about the current state of the music business. This digital DJ promo is only a nibble of N’dambi’s Pink Elephant, a masterpiece that layers her molasses-drenched vocals into cushy multi-part harmonies.

DJ PROMO: Alex Cuba – Agua Del Pozo Album Sampler

September 18th, 2009

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Cuban soul rocker and Juno award-winner Alex Cuba delivers his sophomore full-length, Agua Del Pozo. Although he hails from Artemisa, Cuba (1 hour west of Havana) and resides in Smithers, B.C. (14 hours north of Vancouver), musically he lives everywhere in between. His sugarcane-sweet melodies, pop-soul hooks and rock chords subvert commonly held notions of what Cuban music is. The title track, built on a classic, oldschool two-chord salsa vamp and an infectious dance groove, perfectly highlights Cuba’s electric guitar solos. Also included in this album sampler is the ska-tinged “Tu Boca Lo Quita,” wherein Cuba’s tongue-in-cheek lyrics have him yearning for elusive pleasures.

The John Leckie remix maintains the original’s galloping rhythm, while stripping it down to the bare dancefloor essentials. Groucho transforms “International” into a slow stomper, supplementing it with an eclectic melange of electronic synths, jazz horn and guitar licks. Topping it all off, the DJ Veany remix suffuses the world vocals with driving progressive house.
