Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show regulars will probably already know that Denmark has entered the deep-soul fray in the shape of D/Troit so ears will prick up at the news that the band are shortly to release new single Soul Sound System on 7″ wax. It’s a funky, clattery soul-shakedown, heavy on the horns, mixed by none other than Daptone’s Gabe Roth (blimey!) and celebrates funk-soul culture. But how to represent the vibes emanating from the good groove in audio visual format? Perhaps suitably warm colour-filtered footage of people getting down in a bar (among them a pair of lovers) and quaffing the finest Danish brews. And since a single round in a Danish bar probably blew the entire video budget – we can only conclude that the music truly has spread the love and everyone involved put their hands up for D/Troit gratis. Video premiered below and the band play The Blues Kitchen in Shoreditch on 15th of September.
