Here’s a sweet and happy single release, produced by Soom T and Francesco Perella (Dub Master), with all manner of reggae and soul influences mixing into an upbeat little track. On her own Renegade Masters label, Soom T delivers a strong vocal delivery on top of a live-sounding instrumental backdrop; a very strong track with energetic vocals and Rudy-style brass, powering along like something from another time. Glaswegian Soom T has collaborated in the past with the likes of compatriots Mungo’s Hi Fi (see reggaemusic.org.uk 2nd November 2011) and on this release she demonstrates she can offer a fine vocal indeed. The flip is a great old-school instrumental ‘version’ rather than a re-engineered dub, and it highlights the rock-steady guitar, vintage-style instrumental break mid-way through, and precision drums keeping the time on the off-beat without a fault. Perfect.
Soom T ‘Our World’ released 4th March 2013 on Renegade Masters; 7” vinyl and DDL
