Just in time for Valentine’s Day this year, Big Crown come correct with another soul scorcher from Finnish crooner Bobby Oroza. Without missing a soulful beat, Oroza gets right back on the horse of a record he rode in on in 2018 called This Love and delivers a double-sider of soul goodness with “I Got Love b/w Loving Body”. Not one to really slack, Bobby goes right for the heartstrings on the A-Side, “I Got Love”. A slow burner that puts love at the top of everything, and we mean everything, the chorus of “I got love, that’s all I need” reminds us all to get our shit straight here in 2021. The flip, “Loving Body”, produced by the ever smooth and always reliable Cold Diamond & Mink, is simply put from Big Crown: “an instant staple in the soul world and beyond”. We can’t disagree.
With Oroza’s voice and CD&M production, these are future classics and will stand the test of time like great soul records do.
With Oroza’s voice and CD&M production, these are future classics and will stand the test of time like great soul records do. We’re always amazed at the body of work in the funk and soul area that comes out of Finland. With bands like The Soul Investigators, Nicole Willis, Bobby Oroza, Cold Diamond & Mink, as well as a plethora of talented artists that all work together, play on each other’s records, and just generally support that scene over there, it’s a solid foundation that will not crack. Big Crown has tapped into this music pool and come out with a guaranteed winner in Bobby Oroza. We said it before with some of his last releases and we’ll say it again. Bobby is here to stay. His sweet soul sound is not just for lovers (but leans to them hard), but really for the world. because you can’t go wrong with a little soul, can you? Stream the forty-five below and pre-order from Big Crown after the stream.
