Welcome to the second single from the debut album from Random Soul, ‘Live For The Moment’. Hailed as the funkiest hip shaker off the album, ‘Time To Funk’ pays tribute to the heads that don’t mind a little funk and rap to kick start their Saturday night.
Featuring the creative vocals from LA’s best known beat hustler, Joshua Heath combined with Random Soul’s synth work and Will Farge’s Tenor sax brilliance, This track is going to be shaking booties like the Fresh Prince of Bell-Air!
First up on the remixes is the talented Jay Vegas. Glitzy by name and by nature, Jay works this track into a peak time house monster. Using clever samples, driving jackin beats and cutting up the sax for a memorable club cut that every house head needs!
Joshua Heath then takes us on a sleazy tech house journey with his ‘Heath’s Milk Was A Bad Choice Dub’. While offering a nasty bassline and trippy vocal reworks, this one is a must for those amongst us that don’t mind getting a little sideways.
With a funky ‘Random Soul Dub’ rework and an extended DJ friendly mix, this is an all round beefy single that helps remind us all that; If it’s time to funk, then it’s time to dance!
“Live For The Moment” is the debut album from Random Soul, the Australian house duo of Yogi & Husky. The duo have made a big impression in recent years with releases for labels including Strictly Rhythm, Bargrooves, Salted and Large. The album, released on their own label, Random Soul Recordings, presents an effortless journey through 15 tracks that cement their position amongst the most established names in Deep and Soulful House circles, while also showcasing their talent in creating Soul, Jazz and Funk gems.
“Live For The Moment” incorporates everything from floating vocals and laid-back soulful grooves riddled with live instrumentation, through to bumping, funky club tracks. The album also highlights their talent as songwriters with a string of captivating vocals featuring strong hooks, often performed by Yogi. Six vocal collaborators include well-known West Coast USA artists Chuck Love and Joshua Heath, as well as Natalie Conway, Kristen Pearson, Kyla Sexton and Louis Hale. All are close friends of Yogi & Husky, and the chemistry of the relationships shines through: “Working with friends always makes the job seem more fun too, so doing tracks with people like Joshua Heath and Chuck Love, usually meant more jokes and laughing than ‘work’ per say. We enjoy getting other people in the studio as it creates such a different dynamic”
