This beat is certified dope

5 07 2009

Soul Sunday is taking the summer off, but not before leaving you with a stone cold classic by Brit soul heroes Soul II Soul. The acapella version of “Back to life” is a club classic, but the original cut is nothing to sneeze at either.

I remember the instance: a birthday party at a friend’s house. I was rummaging through her CD collection when I stumbled on Carolyn Wheeler’s killer vocals and completely lost it when the beat dropped. I’m talking bonkers.
