It’s always refreshing to hear new music from Tom Szirtes aka Shur-I-Kan. He’s been one of our most consistent ally since the early days of the label and continues to deliver quality and quantity. The title song is uplifting and hopeful, something we can all use these days. Great piano hook, live bass by Nick Cohen, live percussions by Danny Ward (aka Moodymanc) and strings by Pete Whitfield. All of that over Tom’s signature beats. The Reprise breaks things down in the first section, concentrating on the instruments and bringing in the drums in the second half.
Bubblin’ Up is yet another classic Shur-I-Kan moment, taking things into a darker and tougher territory. One for those peak times club moments as far as we can remember!
Shut This Down showcases the versatility of Tom’s repertoire. A Broken Beat number featuring vocals by Anna Stubbs and rightfully dedicated to the memory of Phil Asher.
