Image: 1581239 'En Route' is the stunning debut album of young soulful French chanteuse Caroline Lacaze. It tells her story as a musical roadtrip. The 'swinging mademoiselle' released a string of successful 45s on renowned labels such as Mocambo, Tramp Records and Legère Recordings, appeared on the Mighty Mocambos' album "The Future is Here" and became a regular feature of the group on the subsequent tour throughout Europe - including support shows for Lee Fields (in Amsterdam's Paradiso and London's Islington Assembly Hall) and a radio live performance at the BBC6 Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show.

Caroline Lacaze now steps further into the spotlight with her first full album "En Route" - in a style that is all her own. The mixture on "En Route" is eclectic: nonchalant 60s beat, mysterious psych-pop, raucous funk and longing French chanson, all held together by the energetic raw soul sound and the skillful 'mise-en-scene' by Mocambo Productions, who provide a musical background with expertise - as they have proven before on their collaborations with the Mighty Mocambos, Gizelle Smith, Kenny Dope, Afrika Bambaataa, The Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band and others.
"En Route" is available on Mocambo vinyl and Legère CD and digital formats.

"The mixture of French singing and raw soul really works by gad. A match made in heaven." (Emrys Baird)
"What a lovely piece of funk magic - that's how soul in 2013 should sound like. Cool, powerful and with a twist." (Michael Arens)
"The French vocals provide a refreshing perspective and a nice touch?super-impressive backing" (Imran Mirza)
"A talent that is undeniable" (Colorising)
"The French language vocals give it a feel unlike most new funk we've heard lately. Caroline's got a greatly soulful voice" (Dusty Groove)
"Caroline Lacaze records French retro soul that's crunchy, deep, funky and growingly addictive!" (Julien Lakshmanan)
