European chilled groove with an African vibe, driven by the polyrhythms of Franck Mantegari, Paris-based drummer for Alpha Blondy (8 years) in addition to work with Saint Germain and Massive Attack; US singer/guitarist Matt Harding that has impressed well known icons such as John Lee Hooker and Taj Mahal; and his high school friend and group leader Mikel Azpiroz (currently based in the Basque Country) on Rhodes, organ and keyboards. This is an infectious blast of old school soul sauce, that keeps it percolating with tasty soloing and straight ahead grooves perfect for a boogaloo fix.
Mikel Azpiroz: organ, wurlitzer, rhodes, synths, programming
Matt Harding: guitar, vocals
Franck Mantegari: drums, percussion
