Madcap - River Soul: This iconic track has been sought after for months after being hammered in the clubs by some of the top deejay in the world. The classic drums, are complimented perfectly by a booming 808 baseline, Rhodes keys, echoing flutes, and sultry vocals that fit seamlessly into the groove. Madcap has created an undeniable groove that will be played for years to come. Classic! Madcap - Pablo: The flip side of the record offers up a sneaky groove that will rock any sound system. The track features snappy drums, slapping percussion, a pulsating sub bassline, a classic horn sample, and echoing vocals. To this point, 'River Soul', has been the more well known track from the release. But when people hear, 'Pablo', I think both tracks will be played an equal amount. Overall, this is an instant classic of a release, and Soul Deep is proud to have the honor of representing the music on the label.
