Debut full length set from relative newcomer Portia Monique with Reel People at the production helm, this is all about tough, well laid tight grooves, funk edged soulful dancefloor action laced with jazz and soaring cosmic tones that set off Portia’s strong, sassy vocal delivery. ‘Cloud IX kicks off a rock solid set in faultless, feet to the floor fashion. ‘I Ain’t Scared Of You’ is old school enough to appeal to fans of the vintage but also has that classic Reel People staccato beat vibe. ‘Ecstasy’ is a great, at times spaced out dancer, ‘Who’ shows Portia’s confident, spoken word, lyrical edge set against a brilliant funky jazz backing with a killer upright bass while ‘Smile’ is a quality mid-tempo hand clapper. Half way through and this is beginning to sound like one of the albums of the year! ‘Never Give You Up’ and ‘My Love’ are ridiculously catchy boogie bangers, while ‘Grace’ is jazzy soul perfection. ‘Nobody’ closes out the set: another funk fuelled, boogiefied dancefloor winner that leaves you wanting to hear much more from this lady. Quality!

    Fabulous soul album, with a touch of funk. Pure class!
