Color Red Records is thrilled to announce the release of Ari Joshua's latest single "Soulmine" featuring an all-star cast of musicians. The single showcases the exceptional talents of composer Ari Joshua on guitar, Delvon Lamarr on Hammond organ, Skerik on sax, Grant Schroff on drums, and Tor Dietrichson on Congas.
Already a hit with Funk, Jazz, and Jam music fans, "Soulmine" has received critical acclaim since its release last week. It earned a coveted spot on Spotify's ‘official editors’ funk playlist and caught the attention of curators and radio stations. "Soulmine" was also featured on Michael B's popular podcast, "40 Minutes of Funk," which has just broken into the top 100 podcasts list this week. Guests this week also include internationally acclaimed keyboardist Robert Walter.
This is the second of three tracks from the quartet, building on the success of last month's "Fresh." Percussionist Tor Dietrichson adds a Ray-Barretto-like glue to the organ groove, creating a nostalgic 1970s vibe. The bassline, guitar riffs, and sax lines come together in perfect harmony, creating a sonic masterpiece that kept us moving and grooving from start to finish.
With the success of "Soulmine," Color Red Records is excited to release the next single from this talented lineup. "Spooky" is set to drop on April 28th, promising even more funky and soulful music.
In addition, fans can look forward to even more music from Ari Joshua. "Lights Out" featuring Ari Joshua on guitar (Big High, AriSawkaDoria), Eden Ladin on keys (Gilad Hekselman, Avishai Cohen), John Kimock on drums (Mike Gordon Band, Otiel Burbridge & Friends), and Andy Hess on bass (Gov’t Mule, Black Crowes) will be released on April 14th. The Music Factory Label is also gearing up to release two more tracks from Ari's vault, "Kambo Wambo," an Afrobeat groove featuring Ray and Russ from Soule Monde, and "Let's Do It Right Now," a jazz-oriented track featuring Medeski, Martin, and Fraticelli.
Stay tuned for more from Color Red Records and Ari Joshua via his label, this music is continuing to inject new life to Funk, Jazz, and Jam music scenes.
