The Bamboos I Don't Wanna Stop
News from Tru Thoughts on new Bamboos release:
The Bamboos collaborate to dazzling, deep, funky effect with vocalist extraordinaire and new Tru Thoughts signing Kylie Auldist, on the soulful new single release of “I Don’t Wanna Stop.”
Offering up a different experience to the original album version (on The Bamboos’ 2007 album “Rawville”) the exclusive Marc Mac Grown Soul Remix of “I Don’t Wanna Stop” is the main event here, and the first of a generous six cuts on this 12”. Marc (of groundbreaking Mercury Music Prize and MOBO-winning duo 4Hero) brings his deep grooves to the track and injects it with a seriously soulful feel, perfectly melding with Auldist’s voice. The two gems that follow on the A-side, the Marc Mac Grown Soul Instrumental and the A Cappella version, present a rare chance to get right under the skin of this stunning song. When Auldist’s powerfully soulful vocal takes centre stage…prepare to be wowed!
The eclectic mix of treats continues – flip over for the upbeat Lanu (alter ego of Bamboos frontman Lance Ferguson) remix of The Bamboos’ “Bring It Home” featuring Alice Russell. The AA2 track is an exclusive A Cappella version of “Get In The Scene feat Ohmega Watts.” The smooth and clean spoken word from Watts (Ubiquity) here is mesmerising, and this version lends a different slant to the classic Bamboos track. Continuing in this showcase of great performances is the A Cappella cut of “Bring It Home” featuring Russell’s feisty vocal in all its glory.
Kylie Auldist’s debut solo album will be out on Tru Thoughts in May 2008.
