Max Essa has quickly become a friend of the blog. He has kindly sent over a track from his new release on Bear Funk, which is a collaboration between “Chicken Lip” Steve Kotey and himself, aptly entitled Soiree.
Just to give a little background on the project….
‘Soiree is a new collaboration project by Stevie Kotey and Max Essa. Over the last couple of years the pair have been working with various musicians such as the drummer, Dave Barbarossa ( Adam & The Ants, Bow Wow Wow ) and the percussionist, Des Barnes from Yam Who? The resulting tracks are a melting pot of Jazz Funk, Disco, Rock and wonky dance music of every persuasion. Comparisons have been made to the work of Arthur Russell and Ian Dury and the Soiree L.P due out in Autumn 2009 is sure to be one of this years highlights.’
The debut EP from Soiree, ‘Introducing Soiree’, is out now, so go buy it!
