In January, KingStreet blessed us with the wonderful "The writing's on the wall" by Danny Clark and Kenny Bobien, now history repeats itself as Danny Clark joins forces with songstress Carla Prather on the phenomenal "Joy". To cut to the chase, "Joy" is beyond the shadow of a doubt a breathtaking soul/funk infused masterpiece having timeless written all over, with a smooth yet infectious organic backdrop leading the way for illustrious jazzy keys by Bennett Holland and Danny Clark, grand sax by James Vargas and not to forget to mention Carla Prather's inimitable emotive vocals. Beside the main vocal and instrumental versions, the package includes an awe-inspiring old school inspired 'Deepah Dub' guaranteed to send shivers down your spine thanks to relentlessly thumpin' rhythms and enticing melodies. By no means to be missed...
