In The Spotlight

Abakan – “The People”

Born near Paris, the musical virtuosity of this French singer, songwriter and musician found its origins in listening to Earth, Wind & Fire‘s funk and George Benson‘s vocal acrobatics. He immersed himself in the music of soul and funk legends and ultimately created his own funkadelic sound. In 2014 he released his debut album “A New Man” and in 2016 he took his music on an Asian tour.

Soaked in classic soul sensibilities and a dash of funk, his latest single is a deliciously velvety smooth groove. While lyrically expressing a desire to find a little bit more human interaction in the digital age of electronic communication, musically it’s a gorgeously mellow soul ballad with a laid-back rhythm and lustrous organ tones. With an added Al Green-like suaveness, this is sweet and soulful ear-candy.
