Tortured Soul Is Ready To Make Us Dance Again

Tortured Soul Is Ready To Make Us Dance Again

The Neo Soul Cafe Family loves Tortured Soul.  We are so elated with the release of their latest “Makin’ Me Better”.   Along with the original mix, written and produced by Tortured Soul’s leader, John-Christian Urich, the release features remixes from Lea, Malachi, and Cryosis.
“Makin’ Me Better” features the signature deep house Tortured Soul sound – effortless melodies stretching from baritone to falsetto over a four-on-the-floor, meticulously-crafted, jazz-tinged canvas with strokes of Prince in the arrangement.
Malachi has been going non-stop since 2000 collaborating with such luminaries as Stee Downes, The Shapeshifters, Ce Ce Peniston, and Barbara Tucker on legendary labels like Soulfuric and Defected. Here he transforms “Makin’ Me Better” into a chugging deep houser with 90s style shuffling, driving beats and funky bass. Perfect for the basement or late night, it’ll appeal to deep and tech people alike.
“Lea’s World Mix” is an intense deep house jam that draws “Makin’ Me Better” fully into the sub-bass realm and provides fresh heat to drop into any soulful, deep or afrohouse set. Lea is a Canadian, Brooklyn-based, house music artist and producer and has released works with notable labels such as Deep Culture Music, Soundmen on Wax, Exemplary Music Makerz, and Open Bar Music.
Cryosis, the upstart production duo from Mumbai, creates an uplifting main floor progressive banger that you’d expect to hear at a festival or club. It’s a perfect blend of Tortured Soul’s soulful sound and their ultra modern sensibility.
