of self-penned story-based songs. Optimism, conviction and resilience are hallmarks of Somi’s new creations of survival and awareness. In this digital DJ promo, “Prayer To The Saint Of The Brokenhearted” reflects on the helplessness and hopelessness one often feels after heartache, while serving as a reminder of faith and renewal. Featuring the legendary Hugh Masekela on trumpet, “Enganjyani” (‘most beloved’ in Rutooro, the language spoken by Somi’s Ugandan mother) refers to, “the memory of whispered prayer and being haunted by a past lover.” “Rising” is a song about faith and navigating life’s challenges, filled with a flawless juxtaposition of sizzling rhythm, instantly memorable melody and a vocal style that JazzTimes magazine describes as, “the earthy gutsiness of Nina Simone blended with the vocal beauty of Dianne Reeves.”

Paul Randolph, Jazzanova’s current front-man, provides vocals for a house’d up version of West Phillips’ boogie favourite "Sucker for a Pretty Face."

DJ PROMO: Scott Hardkiss – “Come On, Come On” EP featuring Lisa Shaw w/ Remixes by Morgan Geist and Joe Claussell

October 1st, 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.

Dance music legend Scott Hardkiss unleashes an extra-special package with the 2nd EP off his highly-acclaimed full-length album, Technicolor Dreamer.  “Come On, Come On” is reminiscent of Scott’s groundbreaking early work “Raincry,” blending funky breakbeats with a dreamy, uplifting & atmospheric vibe and futuristic electronics. He’s taken the vibe to the next level with a heartbreakingly beautiful vocal by the much-loved Lisa Shaw of Salted & Naked Music and a soul-dripping track that’s already being hailed as a future classic.  Presented along with the DJ-friendly Original, Instrumental, & Acappella mixes, the EP also includes extraordinary club remixes from two more of the world’s finest DJ/producers. 

The legendary Joaquin “Joe” Claussell of Body & Soul and Sacred Rhythm puts his hands, mind and spirit on “Come On, Come On” and came out with over an hour’s worth of multiple mind-blowing mixes. This digital DJ promo includes his sunrise-ready “Sacred Rhythm Suite,” a truly magnificent 15-minute epic journey that’s bound to become an organic house classic, gorgeously weaving together Lisa’s voice with live piano, Latin guitar, tribal percussion & African choir “The Voices of Mali,” as well as an accompanying instrumental version. Yet another modern NYC master, Morgan Geist of Metro Area and Environ fame, gives the song his own classic electronic feel with his retro-futuristic remix in a techno/new-wave style that brilliantly reworks Scott’s own vocal contribution & synth arpeggios together. The 80′s flavored beats, synths & sounds bring the track simultaneously into nu-disco and New Order territory. NOTE: AIFF files are available by request
