The opening cut of new REEL PEOPLE MUSIC album 'FUTURE RETRO' VOL. 1 tells you everything you need to know about its creators, THE LAYABOUTS.
Anything but, producers LEIGH DARLOW and ALEX PASCHALI have been feverishly busy evolving their quality house sound. The depth and emotional punch is still there but a return, also, to the classic, New Jersey-style flow of their earliest work. Married to the boys' ever increasing knowledge of contemporary studio production and you have 'future retro' -- a powerful, full-formed vibe set to shake global dancefloors for all their taste-making worth.
First off the album and new single is 'DO BETTER', with vocals by blazing new Seattle talent PORTIA MONIQUE. An emphatic soul-dance hustle, Monique's cultured lyrics and delivery sliding assuredly over a multi-layered bed of stirring pianos, rich, flanged keys, spine-tingling breaks and key changes, and irresistible rolling house drums.
THE LAYABOUTS -- 'FUTURE RETRO' VOL. 1 is released at the end of March 2012 and features new collaborations with OMAR, TONY MOMRELLE, PORTIA MONIQUE, IMAANI & SHEA SOUL.
