January saw the launch of ChiNola Soul Music with "Single" by Chicago native DJ Randall 'Smooth' Montgomery and vocalist Arielle Dominique, in February they presented the follow-up single "My skin", and now their third collaboration "Circumstances" is ready. Once again the two bless us with a fabulous soulful gem, with the original mix oozing with the glamorous haunting vocals of Arielle Dominique, tantalizing melodies and compelling rhythms. The 'NolaSoul Remix' is a brilliant spiced-up rework of the original, Rick Lenoir adds his magical soulful touch, and finally Soul Slayerz (Hakeem Syrbram & Tayo Wink) contribute a fervid afro-deep rework.
