La Veda springs out this fall with her funkiest of funkiest. Featuring the "Human Orchestra" Kenny Mohammad doing all the instrumentation orally - yes you heard it: it's all done with his voice! Atop this megabeat is the soulful and rhythmic vocal arrangement and creative writing skills of La Veda.
"You'll never have to ask for anything, I will satisfy your every need, take my hand and I'll show you surprises..." builds up the verse with simple yet effective cooing of Ms Veda with her jazz-like technical expert delivery, this song scats and flows simultaneously to a completely organic and completely gripping chant of passion, love, seduction, tease and hope... Flawless!
Remix by Deep House Wonder-Man Mr. Soul Fabulous - who's "Laundromat EP" is now burning the floors up - takes this track on a new journey and twists it with a 4/4 and dublines to keep you down in it from the first beat. Also featured is the Breakout Mix by Herbie James who graces our stereos with his always intelligent approach to music, by serving it real authentic! His wonderful instrumentation on this version switches up the funk with a flare of old school savvy with new school awareness. It is a privilege to welcome him home!
