When the seasoned singer and musician Bobby Oroza lay his gentle voice on tape at the Timmion Labs a year ago, nobody knew what was about to happen. The beat ballad "This Love" on the Stylart sublabel, flew out and the first pressing was sold out within a week. A dj issue was sold for a hundred dollars at an auction even before the record was released. The hype was real.
Originally the lengthy vocal take was spread on two sides, persuading dj's to spin it with two copies to get the full experience. This pleasure can now be extended even further by rocking the instrumental backing by Cold Diamond & Mink before cutting to the vocal. Or, if you prefer it sans vocal, keep it instrumental all the way. Incidentally, not many are aware that Bobby plays the organ here.
For fans of Bobby's extremely personal style, he has new tracks in the pipeline, and man are they potent. Keep your ear tuned to Timmion and Stylart, the official home of post-millennial soul sounds.
