Breakin Bread continue to support the specialist soul and funk scene with a release from Edenheight. They are not a new band, these guys have been gigging hard all over Bristol and The South West, but it is their debut vinyl release. It's not just another "new funk" offering, the band have a tightness from all the gigs and 2 superb female vocalists that make these tracks stand out from the pack.Edenheight are a deep-groovin' and original outfit with a soulful urban sound. Forged in Bristol, their list of influences favour more percussive styles including Afro, Funk, Hip Hop + Dub, and as such dance-ability is a precedent. This standard owes as much to an evolution in the city's underground live scene as to their appreciation of high energy musicianship and production.PeaceboyThis track is a collaboration between some time Bristol based vocalist/lyricist 'Trudi Mosiamo', an inspired vocal performance from singer 'Elle Dee' (Smith and Mighty) and a 70s psych-funk fusion idea from Edenheight. This is not your average funk fare. The beat bristles from the get go, coming from a different place than most other modern soul/funk offerings. The bass drops in and the groove grabs you deeply before the vocal even kicks in. This is a musical statement of intent from the hard end of the collectives repertoire, this version includes a blistering alto solo from James Morton.TroubleThis is the sort of groove only a well honed gigging band could offer. Downtempo and deep, Elle Dee brings an urban narrative to a growling, bass-heavy Edenheight break. This is spacious pocket funk where counter rhythmic horn lines and rhythm section interplay build throughout. On resolution of the vocal structure, the outro's tenor Saxophone solo by Mike Lesirge weaves through to fade.
