Fred P and SMBD

Mantras For Travelling Souls Vol 1

Real authentic House music from two visionary producers who have first met a decade ago in NYC. If you've ever found yourself lost in a Theo Parrish, DJ Qu or Moodyman vortex, you'll be all over this. Velvet-lush synths, timeless samples, strafing bass keys, spaced-out jazz-taught grooves & yearning chord movements are delivered with a precision balance of weight and introspection by NYC's own House legend and Soul People label head Fred P - aka Black Jazz Consortium - and SMBD - the raw house alias of the unboxable Simbad - who has contributed to the the catalogues of Freerange, BBE, Apron, Local Talk, Defected, Brownswood & more and who's production credits include deeper Dubstep don Mala (DMZ), UK Hip Hop star Roots Manuva, Cuban songstress Dayme Arocena, Detroit House producer Kai Alce and Brazilian superstar artist/actor Seu Jorge amongst others. Mantras for the Travelling Soul Vol.1 is a Limited Edition 12" release featuring 3 x emotional and dynamic extended jams to lift heads, swell hearts and move feet + 2 x "Mantraludes" connecting and creating a truly unique record.

Tech-soul journeying at its finest. Lasting and gratifying. Deep House nirvana.
