One of the hottest releases of the year has to be Finnish soul man Bobby Orozas album – This love. When the Finnish ‘King of Cool’ and Cold Diamond & Mink production duo first got together in the studio, they cut ‘This Love‘ which would set the template for a string of vintage soul nuggets.
The album is highly recommended by us (and by a very nice staff at Resident Music, Brighton, UK) and features killer tracks such as Your Love Is Too Cold, Lonely Girl and Déjà Vu.
The formidable musicianship of Cold Diamond & Mink is undeniable as the foundation which seals the identity of the music. From slow tempo ballads to groovy soul licks the sense of timeless arrangements are cemented in the core of this album.
Big Crown Records now present the full ten-track LP minus Bobby, and instead, the music does the talking. And these notes sing!
Available on Bandcamp, the LP is coloured red translucent and includes a free Bobby Oroza Poster: $20.99 +postage
