The Players Theme

A 2 track funk single (7m 23s) — released July 9th 2007 on Freestyle Records
Another slice of wax from the recently liberated library album from The Sound Stylistics. Recorded in 2002 for Bruton the album has weaved its way into funk folklore for collectors the world over, becoming a word of mouth phenomena and a collectors wet-dream due to its failure to ever get a proper release. Despite file-sharers, bootleggers and back-street dealers pushing illegitimate copies of the tracks, the legendary status of this lost album has not waned one bit. Consisting of a who’s who of the London funk scene (and a veritable dream team of players!) the band consists of, amongst others, members of JTQ, Jamiroquai, Brand New Heavies, The New Mastersounds, Galliano and The Herbaliser. "The Players Theme" evokes the classic "Memphis Soul Stew" by King Curtis, with its creeping bass and layered instrumentation. Bringing the drums to the fore, this is another guaranteed dancefloor filler! Over on the flip "Soul Dynamite" swaggers with a similar style to Speedometers most recent work, with some heavy horn action. Once again, the breaks come thick and fast to keep your dancers sweating!
