Maggtapp - Because You're You (Preservation Project)
29th July 2021
A: Maggtapp - Because You're You
B: Joe McGlone & The Hot Pepper Band - Love I Lost
The Preservation Project label make a welcome return with two sides that will fit very snug in the DJ box of those who have a leaning towards music on the modern soul and northern soul tips respectively. When the label announce something, we sit up and take note and they never disappoint. Preservation Project have made a name for themselves in unearthing music that has really needs to see the light of day but has been kept deep underground for so long.
From the label:
"Side A features Maggtapp's previously unreleased 'Because You're You'. This is a strong female vox lead sublime modern soul groover. It features a steady beat and a spacious arrangement - just drums, bass, electric piano, and organ - that lets the vocals float on top of it. It definitely could be a demo or a temporary mix down, as it could be a bit more fleshed out, but it is really quite good as is.
Joe McGlone & The Hot Pepper Band tear up Side B with another previously unreleased gem. 'Love I Lost' is an anthemic cover of the Kenny Gamble/Leon Huff tune. It starts with an almost church like organ lifting you into a track that kicks wide open into a 70s Northern Soul floor filler. This is a classic strong Soul lead vocal with a harmony call and response chorus. Just try to keep from tapping your feet and then jumping out on the dancefloor."
