It's exciting to see the American label ABB Soul take an interest in the wealth of future funk being made in Europe and young producer < a href="?http://www.markdeclivelowe.net"?>Mark de Clive-Lowe is definitely one of the rising stars. Tide's Arising features the space age effects of modern broken beat but also features live instrumentation and memorable vocals laid on top. The album will appeal to a broad range of music fans thanks to guest appearances by rapper Capitol A, British sirens Bembe Segue and Vanessa Freeman as well as Kaidi Tatham a.k.a. Giant Step's own Agent K. Perfect for fans of Jazzanova, Bugz in the Attic, I.G. Culture and 4Hero.
