Deep Street Soul - Come Alive!Freestyle
The third LP, "Come Alive!" from the Australia based group Deep Street Soul is raw funk in it's purest form. Indeed the ten track LP packs a punch with gritty grooves and stellar vocal performances. The group's main vocalist Mighty May Johnson sets the disc in motion by ripping through the organ grinding funk of "Done Me Wrong". Melbourne native Joshua Tavares strums the heart strings with stirring ballad "The Hardest Part Is Knowing". Fellow Australian Kylie Audist delivers her powerful vocals on the mid-tempo funky burner "Love On Tap". If you like your funk straight with no chaser then you need this in your collection.
