The original mix of “U LIVE 2 FAR AWAY”, written and produced by John Christian Urich, Tortured Soul’s primary composer, producer, arranger, as well as, vocalist and drummer, has the timeless song structure, signature hooky vocals, smooth rhodes, and tight bass that is classic Tortured Soul….but by slowing down to a nu disco tempo, Tortured Soul steers a little left of house and straight towards funk with this super catchy release that has them doubling down on their promise to get the girl.
Tortured Soul is 100% LIVE, modern, deep, soulful, house music. The band’s frontman and songwriter, John-Christian Urich, can be seen simultaneously drumming and singing with effortless mastery, while bassist, Jordan Scannella, and keyboardist, Isamu McGregor, virtuosically generate the pulsating accompaniment that has been making bodies sweat for years and continues to be what Gilles Peterson called “The future of house music.” Influenced by the classic songcraft of Prince, Heatwave and Kool & The Gang, and likened to The Roots of house music, Tortured Soul’s sound is reminiscent of neo-soul groups like Jamiroquai or Brand New Heavies, while also being deeply saturated in the contemporary freshness of house purveyors like Joey Negro, Louie Vega, Soul Clap and Disclosure.
