Banger alert! “Amazing” is the first song on the forthcoming debut release of FLuiD BouncE, the broken beat meets boogie & soul duo of Birmingham UK based singer, songwriter & keyboardist Colonel Red and producer & DJ Lord Byron. The full album, ‘Chapter 1’, is due to be released on November 27 on Inner Tribe.
“Amazing” is a perfect example of how ‘Chapter 1’ weaves broken beat and house rhythms with classic soul, boogie and funk. Social commentary is high on the agenda, and rightfully so. Red is a master of the vocal performance and has a knack for writing addictive songs. Lord Byron’s progressive beats are a perfect fit.Pre-Order on Bandcamp
Colonel Red is well loved among broken beat aficionados for his many collaborations during the genre’s Goya distributed golden age, with the likes of Daz-I-Kue, Alex Attias, IG Culture and Bugz in the Attic. Not forgetting his own self-produced debut on the legendary PEOPLE imprint.
Since then, Red has struck his own path, with releases on Tokyo Dawn, Ink Rebellion and recently Inner Tribe, that widened his sound and appeal. He has worked with and written for a long list of major artists & legends, including Maurice White, Lenny White, Amp Fiddler, Keith Sweat, Teddy Pendergrass, Anita Baker, Shara Nelson, Lisa Lisa & the Cult Jam, Sandra St Victor, Ursula Rucker, Tony Allen, Jon Hassel, Dwight Trible, The Last Poets, and Brian Jackson.
Lord Byron is a veteran DJ, a mainstay of Bruk Up and Rogue Soul nights, whose talents have seen him invited to guest on IG Culture’s Co-Op Presents: Selectors Assemble Worldwide FM show and mix series.
Inner Tribe is the fairly young Adelaide-based label founded by Jules Habib, aka DJ/producer Inkswel, and his partner, singer & song writer Charlie Umami, that in a very short matter of time has racked up a pile of key releases, working with great talents such as J-Soul, Ezroh, Kid Sublime, Ahu, Phat Kat, Jitwam and of course, Colonel Red.
