SMOOVE & TURRELL: Beggarman – 2009 – Single review

Rating: ★★★★★

One of the stand-outs from the Antique Soul LP, this soaring, yet somewhat melancholy, nu-soul anthem finds Turrell pondering the current economic recession through the medium of his warmly rasping soul vocal. In this he is ably assisted by partner in crime and beatmaster-general Smoove. Between the two of them they conclude that far from all that bollocks about ‘quantitative easing’ what you really need is to get your ass to the, “beggarman’s disco,” in order that the, “bad times don’t get you down.” Well, I’m always up for a boogie. As long as it’s not house music.
Out 21 September 16 November on Jalapeno

    Let’s put it this way – if I was playing this out I’d run with the original mix every time. I’ve changed the ‘listen’ link so you can give them a blast yourself 🙂
