Tenderlonious & The 22archestra – The Shakedown


Following on from Tenderlonious’s stunning six track EP the 22a label boss offers up a new live project alongside his newly founded 22archestra. The exclusive Sounds Of The Universe 7″ promo features two cuts from a new album scheduled for release in November. On one side “SV Disco” is both a straight party tune and up-beat disco infused tribute to the mighty Slum Village. With a strong beat and plucking bass line, the tune weaves in and out of funky synth lines and flute flurries. On the flip side “The Shakedown” is 4 minutes of straight blaxploitation style funk! Intricate percussion meanders it’s way in-and-out of a deep groove, and tasteful flute interjections. We can’t wait for the release of their forthcoming album.           

The Shakedown is out now via Sounds Of The Universe. (Limited to 200 copies )
