SpectraSoul have a reputation among Drum & Bass heads that’s second to none. Vital members of DJ Friction’s irrepressible Shogun Audio movement, the duo have released music on only the very finest, most respected labels in the scene. Beautifully deep and etched with groove, yet powerful enough to move any dancefloor, SpectraSoul’s stunning musical productions are a far cry from the soulless, synthetic rave fodder so many unfortunately associate with Drum & Bass today.
I was first introduced to this track several years ago when visiting Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio. A few of my English mates who were on the football (soccer) squad had gotten a hold of it via Soundcloud and I happened to be passing by their flat when they were bumping it. I had never heard the original, or of ‘Delilah‘ but I was like, ..”YES” when I heard the first drop! Her voice is so pure and their groove really compliments her vocal phrasings without straying too far from the original. It’s a brilliant track for any lover of Soul/Drum & Bass and all-around good music.
With an album project forthcoming, the duo look to expand musical boundaries, explore bass-driven genres like never before, and stamp their mark on present-day music… the SpectraSoul way. Fulljoy this track and to find out more about SpectraSoul, by visiting their site.
