Amplified presents Dirty Soul Electric (BBE Music)

Great album of seriously heavy music. The album flows beautifully and showcases some great music makers from more exposed names like Benny Sings, Tiombe Lockhart and Heavy through to relatively unknowns like Flako & Shaunise, Sandie Black and Oliver Day Soul. Deep joy comes from the Japanese god that is Mitsu The Beats with dabbling by Dwele and the monster track here courtesy of Coultrain with ‘Girl of my Dreams’ – a killer jazz groove. All in all, the albums just proves that in today’s financial climate there can still be great music made and great music released. Top marks start to finish.
