JP Bimeni & The Black Belts
'Keep On Running' / 'I Miss You'
The first 45 release on Tucxone Records in Spain sees a new track from JP Bimeni who covers Jackie Edwards' classic track 'Keep on Running', this is 100% soul with all the raw grit you need, no over polished production here, just tough raw soul. Really great production too, one suspects all the right analog gear was used in making it, balanced, warm and funky as hell. The flip, 'I Miss You' (taken from last year's LP 'Free Me') is super sweet down low down slow soul and just gorgeous. Very much in the same vein as Durand Jones and The Indications, this is new soul that references all that is great with 60s soul yet adds some modernity wthout losing any flavour. An elusive result that not many manage to achieve, but this lot certainly can. Dropping soon, don't miss it.
