The Zone Identity – Soul Food b/w Melting Pot

Attention all you B-Boys, funk junkies, record nerds, and the like: J-Zone’s The Zone Identity is back with another forty five and if you thought their first release “Funk-I-Tus” was a scorcher, then he’s got something else up his sleeve for you, and it’s on the heavy side. Taking on two classic tracks, Frankie Seay & the Soul Riders “Soul Food”, plus Booker T, & The MG’s “Melting Pot”, J, along side Ed Littman (Guitar, Bass) Bennett Paster (Organ), and Ray May (Congas on “Melting Pot”) proceed to give you what you need. Two top notch and top shelf interpretations of tunes that will always get the party rocking. Taking the Miami Sound of ‘Soul Food”, and let’s face it, plain crushing it (including those all time heavy intro drums that have been sampled before), Zone Identity proceed to give you what you need on the A. She ain’t heavy, she’s my record. The flip, a very well thought out and respectful cover of the Stax classic is really everything you’d hope for when someone does a rendition of this. The drum break will most definitely see lots of doubles action, as the breakers and B-Boys will eat this up no doubt. Produced by Victor “the Undercover Brother” Piagneri, this record is no joke. We are in love with this project, because it not only lends the fans of these legendary tracks a new ear to them, but also opens them up to a whole new audience and generation who may not be familiar with these tunes. And that’s all right. Music is about sharing, and J-Zone is sharing the love with these releases. File under you need this record in your life. Stream both sides below:
