been no secret that the UK soul scene has been on the cutting
edge. Its always seemingly been miles ahead of it's US counterparts
where the music is concerned so you can always count on the UK
soul scene to serve up the freshest talent from its mainland.
One such talent making a presence for herself is Juliette
Now if you're asking yourself why does her name sound familiar
to you well it's because she was the lead singer of the up and
coming trio Urban Vibe.
Well Juliette has since parted
ways from Urban
Vibe (with no hard feelings I might add)
and is now embarking on a solo career of her own. Said Juliette
of the situation - 'I needed to spread my wings, unfortunately
we were in disagreeance about some remixing opportunities offered
which I felt had held us back from progression'.
that same mentality and progression in mind, Joolz soon stepped
forward and laid down what is to be her first single 'Unconditional'.
Produced by Darkman Productions
(out of Birmingham City in the UK), 'Unconditional'
tells the story of his Almighty's infinitive gift he (or she -
however you look at it) shows to all of us and why is it that
its not the same with us mortals.
song itself deals with the simple fundamental of the modern era
soul movement, nothing thrilling or fancy just a modest soul groove
that you can sing or dance to while at the same time is given
an injection of life into it's core with Joolz vocal chops at
the helm. The lads at Darkman are on point with the production
and leaves room for remixes in the process
is truly a diamond in the ruff. A talented singer and songwriter
who can kick ass - literally (she's going for her black belt in
Taekwondo next month) and is definitely headed in the right direction
as she kick starts her solo career. One to listen out for so give
it your ear will you. A
true TY-D Pick
