Feel the same (Georgie B remix)
Dave Mascall. feat. Julia Quinn
Dave Mascall Guitarist...Composer...Producer...Teacher. (and all round good guy)
Have a browse through Dave's new website ...have a listen to some track previews...watch a video and maybe even download some music... its all here and ready to go.
This time Dave has yet again enlisted the mighty fine vocal talents of JULIA QUINN who has previously featured on many of Dave’s tracks. “FEEL THE SAME” is released with 3 fantastic versions… one 125bpm Soulful House mix courtesy of FRANKLIN D and a “Soulful mix” with a half time almost Bossa Nova feel. Julia’s strong and soulful voice is clearly evident on this release together with some trademark guitar playing from Mr Mascall himself. Finally, the Jazz Funk mix incorporates new drums, new bass and loads of new guitar work from Dave.
They say lightning doesn't hit twice, however Dave Mascall's instant classic voiced by the wonderful Hannah White 'Gotta Trust In Love' seems to be the exception to the rule! The original mix been warmly received by just about everyone and now Brit funk icon Georgie B has put his stamp on the tune, replaying the drums, bass guitar and keyboards, giving it that 'live' 80's feel we all know and love.
In addition to the wonderful remix courtesy of my good friend Georgie B, we now have the sublime “Modern Soul mix” at the slower tempo of 85 bpm for those of you who love a sexy soul ballad, and to complete this wonderful package of remixes, the maverick remixer extraordinaire Franklin D has once again got out of bed to put a more spacious vibe to the track also incorporating a nicely extended trademark guitar solo from Dave himself. “Gotta trust in love” is being hailed by many as some of Dave’s finest work to date and it is the quality of the song itself which lends itself to a variety of interpretations, each one valid in it’s own right.
Here we have the nicely grooving 100bpm “Gotta trust in love”. I’m extremely proud and honoured to have the wonderful Hannah White on lead and all backing vocals. As well as releasing tracks under her own name, Hannah has many session credits with some great artists including the likes of George Benson, the Rolling Stones, Kenny Thomas...and now me...lol. There are 2 mixes included here …a soulful extended mix at over 5mins 30 secs together with an equally soulful radio edit at just over 4 mins 30 secs. Special mention for a fantastic contribution from saxophone and flute diva Paula Borrell providing the harmony flute riffs and solo.
“IN THE STEPS OF GIANTS” features a selection of favourite Jazz standards that Dave would play regularly at various gigs and engagements. Featuring some up tempo modern jazz classics from legends such as Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Charlie Parker among others, together with some Latin flavoured evergreens from the pen of Henry Mancini and Kenny Dorham and even a classic Hoagy Carmichael ballad. Although Dave has been raising his musical profile more recently within the Soul and Jazz/Funk fraternities with no less than 5 “ACID LOUNGE” albums and numerous single releases, he has clearly put on his “Jazz Hat” for these recordings. Dave says “I started this Jazz guitar album a couple of years ago but got side tracked with other projects. During the Lockdown of 2020 I found some more time on my hands to finally get back to completing it. I wanted to try to get each track recorded as organically as possible in a single take so as to replicate the same sort of performance as if on a live jazz session.” Dave is clearly at home here and his lively yet highly melodic playing is testament to a lifelong love of jazz and a reverence for the legends, let’s say “Giants” in whose footsteps Dave humbly dares to tread.
Here's a chance to get hold of all of Dave's favourite mixes of his amazing 7 UK Soul Chart hits achieved over the last 18 months plus the previously unreleased as a single Soulful House track "HOLD ON" featuring ROXANNE BOURNE. Yes...that's 8 fantastic tracks for the bargain price of £9.99 !!! Other featured artists include JULIA QUINN, GEORGIE B, MARC JUAN and IAN THOMPSON.
