EP no’1. is the Debut from Root and Groove Element.
This four track double 7″ showcases Root & Groove Element’s best tracks so far. “Whatever Happened To Honesty” and “Moving On” will be sure to bring back happy memories of the late 80s / early acid jazz / nu-Brit soul scene with their Brand New Heavies / Young Disciples style soul-jazz / jazz-funk grooves. A killer.
“Soul Food” has an early 80s 2-step soul vibe to it – another wonderful track. Lastly “Sunshine” is a laid back
easy-like-a-Sunday-morning soul-jazz shimmy with a hint of Roy Ayers.
” Highly recommended” – Fitzroy da Buzzboy (soul survivor magazine).
“I LOVE IT!!! especially “Whatever happened to honesty” great tracks & great production!!!” DJ Ease (Nightmares on wax).
