Ode 2 Don C - Jay Nemor & Akanuke

Written by 

The Scandinavian Soul Music Awards isn’t only an event to acknowledge and celebrate the growing genre, it’s also become a new soul network evening.

Swedish soul singers, Tanya and Marianne Da Cruz linked together at the 2013 Awards (Se Mig), and during the 2014 Awards Finnish producer Akanuke (HUMUS) and Nor/US Soul singer Jay Nemor (Kenya & Nemor) also connected.

Out now is the first official single from their musical collaboration ‘Ode 2 Don C’, and it’s soulfully sublime.

ode2Ode 2 Don C is a salute to the late Don Cornelius - creator and longtime host of the groundbreaking music show ‘Soul Train’. The late silken-voiced presenter helped break down racial barriers and broaden the reach of black culture with his presentation of funky music, groovy dance steps and cutting-edge styles.

Fittingly, this smooth and deftly-produced track also include Jay’s rich deep vocals, and even includes the title ’Soul Train’ in the chorus. Accentuated by sweet horns Ode 2 Don C has all the ingredients to become a ‘Soul Train’ event anthem.

In a world which seems determined to force people to be apart, it’s clear...beautiful things happen when we connect, and we suggest you take your seat on this soul train around Scandinavia!

A highly-recommended single!

*** 7" Vinyl expected soon!***
