First Listen - The Foreign Exchange celebrates Love in “June”

(June 23, 2018) It’s summer again. And, so far, it appears it’s going to be among one of the hottest on record. Accordingly, +FE has decided to grace fans with a humidity-defying midtempo groove just in time for your family cookout and alone time sitting in front of the fan. The appropriately titled “June” opens with percussive hip hop before yielding to a yearning vocal opening up with all the feelings of vulnerability and anticipation of a new love experiencing the fresh bloom of summer.

A SoulTracks Tribute to The Spinners

Back in 1971, when the Spinners left Motown for Atlantic Records, it wasn't exactly an event that shook the music world.  But why would it?  The Spinners had toiled in virtual obscurity for nearly a decade as one of Motown's "forgotten" groups.  While Motown star groups like the Temptations and Four Tops were headlining shows around the world and were choosing from the top songs of Smokey Robinson, Norman Whitfield and Holland-Dozier-Holland, the Spinners were recording infrequently and charting even more rarely, working with Motown's second tier

First Listen: Monique Nikkole refreshes Donna Summer classic

(June 22, 2018) Last year marked the 40th anniversary of Donna Summer’s timeless dance number “I Feel Love.” Now Monique Nikkole is turning up the heat on the summer with a refreshing remake of the classic jam. Using more techno whizzes, sultry moans and a slight “Killer Joe” rhythm shift, the “Say Yes” singer breathes new life into one of the greatest dance songs of all time. She even squeezes in a few orgasmic lines from Summer’s “Love to Love You Baby” towards the end of the Shawn Keys-produced track.

World Premiere: Dave Koz and Friends take on Maze classic

Five years ago, after Dave Koz and Friends released Summer Horns—the GRAMMY-nominated album that paid tribute to classic songs featuring killer horn sections—all that the musicians could think about was how much fun they’d just had. They toured behind the album during the summer of 2013, then vowed to spend the following summer doing it all over again. “The second tour was even better than the first,” says Koz, the world-class saxophonist who piloted the release, which rocketed to No. 1 on Billboard’s Current Contemporary Jazz Albums chart.

BET to present Anita Baker with Lifetime Achievement Award

New York, NY (June 21, 2018) – Today, BET Networks announced R&B music legend, and Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, Anita Baker will be honored with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at the “BET Awards” 2018.

First Listen: All-Star band Freelance delivers big R&B sounds

(June 21, 2018) Two words come to mind when I think about freelancers – freedom and struggle. Freelancers set their own rules. They go out and they find jobs and the make arrangements in terms of payment, deadlines and the like. Freelancers work for themselves, often deciding when work starts and when it ends. Freelancing can be very liberating. Freelancing can also be very difficult. You’re the boss and while that means you have nobody to answer to, you also have no one to look to.

First Listen: Roxy5000 brings up the funk on "I'm Your Man"

(June 20, 2018) The multi-faceted artist known as Roxy Prince and his band Roxy 5000 have given us a track for the beach, skating rink, club and highway just in time for summer. “I’m Your Man” is an up-tempo stomper that sports that breezy analog jam, bringing to mind those joyously funky cuts that dominated radio in the late 1970s.

First Listen: Glenn Jones & Regina Belle find “Love By Design”

(June 20, 2018) Something special can happen when you team two musical legends and bring in a world class songwriter. And that’s the kind of magic that is happening now. Books could be written about the careers of Glenn Jones and Regina Belle – careers that are still going strong around the world today. And for Glenn’s upcoming new album, the two stars have teamed for a beautiful ballad that was written by longtime SoulTracks fave James Day.

"The Sly, The Slick & The Wicked" singer Lowrell Simon dies at 75

(June 19, 2018) Lovers of 70s soul music no doubt remember the cool Chicago soul song “the Sly, The Slick and the Wicked.” It was the commercial highpoint of the talented Chicago quartet The Lost Generation. We are sad to inform SoulTrackers of the death of that group’s lead singer, Lowrell Simon, at age 75.
