Today was one of those great days when you get the notification that Vanilla has dropped new music. Not just a single track but a whole LP absolutely stuffed with 17 instrumentals. On a first listen ‘Swept Away’ stood out immediately as one of my favourite tracks. Vanilla turns up the heat up on Michaels Franks’ silky smooth ‘On My Way Home To You’ and gives it that Vanilla groove with added keyboard washes and creepy picked guitar funk. Nobody turns a sample like Vanilla. The added bonus of his music is finding little soulful originals that he breathes new life into.
Make sure you check out the full LP below. Its groovy soul and occasional oriental moments are perfect for those fading summer evening. Its no surprise that we are big fans and for me it’s already up there with Sweet Talk. Don’t sleep on this
