SOMETHING ABOUT SOUL!

Next week we´re releasing I AM DRUM, a compilation of the finest hidden treasures from the african continent compiled by the connoseiur Florent Mazzoleni. But we´re treating you with a sample from the album right now!

Sylvin Marc Listen to Something About Soul part 1&2 (Madagascar-1968) Hailing from Masomeloka, Madagascar, where he was born in 1949, young Sylvin Marc entered Descomarmmond studio in Tananarivo in 1968 in order to record this intrepid number recorded in one take on a simple two-track machine. He masters perfectly a soul language now giving way to funk aesthetics. His brother Justin Marc sits on the drums while Ange Japhet plays the bass. Sylvin Marc’s guitar sounds percussive as if they were dictated by James Brown. But more than being another James Brown replica lost in the Indian océan, Marc displays a natural feeling for rhythm and a vocal swiftness both cheerful and meaningful. His bootleg English singing adds up to the freshness of Listen to Something About Soul which looms towards some funky psycheledic Graal in the second part of this intense track.
