It is almost 2 year ago since the deephouse dons from milan Harley & Muscle delighted us with their third album â€žArmed Response" on Little Angel Records.
Now they are finally hitting the stores with the fourth masterpiece called "Solid Passionâ€.
Harley & Muscle are Flavio â€šMuscle' Romaniello and William â€šHarley' Cataldo from Milan (Italy) and usual they have been extremely busy over the last year, with spreading their solid passion for deep house all over the globe through their legendary dj sets, a&r Â´ing their Soulstar & Little Angel labels, producing other artist and compiling their famous cd compilations.
But still they have managed to deliver this beauty of double album right in time for the famous Winter Music Conference in Miami. Where they will launch their own Soulstar party with acts likeâ€¦.. & play several other big gigs.
The first disc of "Solid Passionâ€, the album side, contains eleven new tracks from the deep house masters. It starts of with the saxy jam that is also the theme tune of the album. Next to jazzy jams and Roy AyersÂ´ish musical journeys like "Black Gownâ€ and â€œTrueâ€, they penetrate deeper with their deep house with a message songs, or like KRS One named it: Edutainment. "Here & Nowâ€, â€œBehind the Curtainâ€, â€œYour Lifeâ€ and â€œAccomplished Mindsâ€. The tracks reflect the craziness of some countries governments and how the people are fooled by mass media and other things that do damage in our society these days. Furthermore there is the retro-jack deep house biggie "House Whispersâ€ on board, which drives towards the dancefloor and samples vocal snippets from oldschool house classics. As all this wouldn't be enough to make your day,
the album gets its golden touch by Harley & Muscle collaborations with the biggest deep house producer around, Kerri Chandler himself, as well as India (who doesn't know her house evergreen's with Master at Work in the early 90s' like "To Be in Love", "I can't get no sleep" or collaborations with Nuyorican Soul).
Both singles caused mass hysteria in the deep house world and hit the top 10 and the famous Traxsource legal mp3 download page.
