Bristol born and Brighton bred, south coast hero J-Felix has teamed up with London topcat Andrew Ashong for his latest offering ‘Mind Up.’
‘Mind Up’ is a taster from J-Felix’s forthcoming album ‘Who Again Hooligan’ that is due for a full release via Tru Thoughts on 6th March. In addition to an impressive back catalogue, he has lent his talents on guitar to the likes of Alice Russell and more recently jazz-wizard Swindle’s live outfit. Having blurred the boundaries between boogie, disco and p-funk over the past few years, new music from J-Felix is always a good thing!
Laced with funk and oozing with groove, ‘Mind Up’ perfectly combines J-Felix’s signature production with Andrew Ashong’s distinctive flexing of the vocal chords. With plenty of space in the track, the gaps in the music make it what it is. Neatly complimenting the warm b-line, the occasional brass input allows the simple but effective drum pattern to chug along at a very agreeable rate, it’s safe to say this link up has not disappointed!
Watch this space for an update when the full album drops in a couple of months time!
