Good Love / Wheel Up

Wheel Up - Good Love

Tru Thoughts

Danny Wheeler aka DJ Wheel Up releases his much anticipated full length debut "Good Love". Wheeler teams up with broken beat pioneer Afonaut from Bugz In The Attic fame as well as his own solo projects. The essence of broken beat personifies this disc and the lead track "Good Love" is evidence of that. The infectious banger features Alabama based rapper Blint Story and vocalist Destiny Will and ignites instant body movement. It's certain to find it's way onto several DJs playlist. "Rise Above" is another Bruk flavored classic that features drum n bass duo Pola & Bryson, aka "Abacus". Blint Story shows up again on the politically tinged Bruk banger "Stay For Long" which is woefully too short at under three minutes. Bembe Segue, a long time contributor to a number of Broken beat compositions with a number of artists displays her unique vocals to the boogie groover "Fusion". "Good Love" is a triumph that celebrates broken beat and club culture. It's an album filled with joyful vibes that deserves heavy rotation.
