In The Spotlight

The Soul Immigrants – “Blame It On The End Game”

Founded in 1992 by singer/guitarist Emrys Baird of Funk Ambassadors fame, this funk quartet from South London have been the purveyors of soul, jazz and funk ever since. Further consisting of David Bouet, Al Gibson and Ian Bailey, they’ve opened for Fred Wesley & The New JB’s and Steve Cropper from Booker T. & The MG’s. They debuted on their album “A Healthy Vibe For A Mood Worldwide” in 1995.

Harking back to the jazz-funk sound from Emrys’ time with The Funk Ambassadors, their red-hot new single is an infectious, funk-laden retro groove. With an insatiable rhythm, fiery slap bass and searing guitars laying down a melody that sounds like a mix of 70s funk and Jamiroquai-like 90s acid-jazz revival, it’s the blistering flute and the soulful vocals that make this tune a treat for your ears.
