Firstborn - Miracles (Feat: Mary Love-Comer) by Independiente published on 2011-10-10T12:22:18Z Taken from the album 'When It Hits You Feel No Pain'. Is Northern soul the coolest music ever? Probably. It’s hard to explain the passion and dedication of the Northern soul obsessive. The lengths you’ll go to find that rare seven inch. Every scarce seven inch is in itself an education in music, in music history and in making music. Oisin Lunny has more than enough of them. “It’s the only music that can make you dance and can make you cry at the same time,” says Oisin, soon to be much better known as First Born. For as Firstborn he has delivered an eclectic album which marries the emotion of Northern Soul with the darkness of urban life, creating a melange of hip-hop breaks, soul vocals and techno sensibilities. NME: “The kind of record that Massive Attack would no doubt love to return with" MUZIK: “One of the most fearsome explorations of the dark side of the soul you’ll have heard – 5/5” I-D MARCH 2001 "former Marxman Oisin Lunny hits on a winning formula and keeps on running" TOUCH MARCH 01 " It's the Gothic head-fuck funk that David Holmes never managed" BLUES & SOUL "quality all the way" FACE : "An essential messy-night-out odyssey...plain ol' stomping".
