“Future soul, anyone? Electronic blues? Neo-funkedelic? Whatever label you feel compelled to slap on this sleek, laid-back EP by singer, songwriter and producer Colonel Red, it’s certainly an inviting, hypnotically groovesome proposition. Inspiring comparisons with d’Angelo’s more woozy offerings, the three tracks on this EP occupy an introspective, somewhat anaesthetised space, from the bubbling, loosely multi-tracked funk of “Spaceface”, with its echoing organ fills, to the guitar-assisted slouch of “Sleepers”, whose spoken word intro and trip hop-esque backing evoke Maxi Jazz jamming with Portishead, albeit with more attitude and less doom’n’gloom.

“LP: Colonel Red – “Keep Walkin” (Album Preview) 0 Posted In New Music,Stream by Speeakz Ahead of it’s September 9th physical release the good folks over at Toyko Dawn Records have offered up a preview stream of Colonel Red’s new album Keep Walkin’. Deep rooted in (neo)Soul, Jazz and Funk – this album is sure to satisfy most connoisseurs, especially those partial to little D’Angelo, Badu, Saadiq etc. Red’s voice is beautifully toned, technically fantastic. His melodies and harmonies are excellently structured and sonically superb – the music which accompanies him (soulful piano & guitar sections, funky horns etc) is neoteric but still familiar and welcoming. Keep Walkin’ is digitally available now.”
