South Africa's Brendan Davids, better known under the Mr Boogie moniker, makes his debut on 4th Quarter Music with the jaw-dropping "African souls" EP loaded with three wonderful soulful gems. First up is "Possessed" where he teams up with San Diano to deliver a thrilling slice of afro deepness laced with heavenly melodies and deeply felt vocals of Jrome Andre. Next are two collaborations with Wily Hird: "Nothing without him" an entrancing afro-deep affair oozing with the beautiful haunting vocals of Wil B, sublime jazzy keys and luscious chords, and "You're always there" a slick deep laidback bar groove layered with Darian Crouse's inimitable emotive vocals and seductive melodies.
