With the old school flavored "Truth" by Andre Espeut and Andre Bonser (released under the Masterman disguise), the Soulfulbeats crew (Matt Hughes, Mickey Blanco, Neil MacLean and Powdersoul) present one of the best soulful house tunes we heard in years, oozing with a gorgeous silky-smooth vibe created by touching vocals, delectable keys and a captivating backing. The dub with its deepened feel is a sure fire late night favorite, while Nick Moss (aka Groove Assassin) remixes use a mellow afro-percussive groove as playground for the vocals, grand piano and lush synth melodies. Timeless and essential.
