MARLON D FT J.R. MORRISON – “AFFECTION”
DA MOOCH FT CHYNNA – “LOVE IS EVERYTHING”
Jellybean Soul Records
Two right down wicked tracks from NY’s Jellybean Soul. First, we have “Affection,” holding a classic JB Soul sound and proving the label never stops releasing the most earnest tracks around. Produced by the legendary Marlon D for Underground Collective, this sultry soulful lover will whirl itself all over you. Female vocals, ripe organs and a bump in the butt—includes vox, groove dub, holla dub and acapella. Second are the sexy Quentin Harris mixes of Love is Everything. Originally produced by Mike “Da Mooch” Mucci, this amalgam of classic and hip exhibits the caliber of what this label is made of. Around 127 bpm, this proggy-type disco groover will be an essential for the deep DJ. Both due for release December 28, 2004. (Look for Marlon D. – “Luscious” debut album: April 2005) Thanks to – John Gambuzza www.jellybean-recordings.com
