Pat Bedeau's up and rising Strictly Music label blesses us with a phenomenal sampler of things to come over the next couple of months. Soweto production duo Alpha & Omega give us "Unknown beauty", a mesmerizing production featuring sublime spoken words by Aubrey Black and lush keys over deep afrocentric rhythms. Pat Bedeau and Kenny Large join forces with vocalists Shishani and Correspondence on "Synchronicity", included here in the fiery yet soulful and uplifting Nassau remix. The Trak Godz (aka Pat Bedeau, DJ Romain and Alex Toms) contribute the bouncin' garage fueled instrumental "The Darkness" and the ruthlessly stompin' "Street walker" featuring passionate vocals by Natasha Watts and spoken words by Rainy Paine, remixed by Dougi Dwongo. Last but not least there is the sun drenched "Secret passion" by Soulful Sessions (Simon 'Schoolboy' Phillips) featuring sultry vocals by JJ alongside melodious keys over a smooth funk drenched backdrop.
