BOBBY OROZA: This Is Love Pt. 1 (Vinyl 7″)

BOBBY OROZA:  This Is Love Pt. 1 (Vinyl 7It’s part one of ‘funky Latin stuff comes from the unlikeliest places night’ here at MB and so it is that the monkey brings you news of the Big Crown label’s signing of Bobby Oroza – born in Finland, the Latin appearance of the name notwithstanding. Turns out Oroza’s new single This Is Love Pt 1 – a hot-buttered slice of woozy lowrider soul – is at the pressing plant and the B-side is a big secret for now. Could it be an instrumental cut called This Is Love Pt. 2? You’ll just have to wait and find out. Until then, the summery Latin soul haze of This Is Love Pt 1 will have to be enough for you as Oroza lullabies you with his occasionally falsetto croon. An album follows later in the year.
(Out soon on Big Crown Records)
