Alex Puddu comes back in full force with an amazing LP starring the legendary singer Joe Bataan.
A new project that follows the two volumes of “The Golden Age of Danish Pornography” and “Registrazioni al Buio” and definitively establishes Alex’s trademark sound: a spicy blend of groove, 70’s sound with cinematic atmoshperes. A vintage production which reminds of Italian soundtrack production of that period.The album features the King of Latin Soul, Joe Bataan, which sings on “ The Mover”,“ 50.000 Women Cant’be wrong and “Love Talk”.
Joe Bataan founded his first band in 1965, merging genres such as Boogaloo and African America Doo-Wop. He is a co-founder of Salsoul Records, named after the style he contributed to create. Among the many highlights of his career “Rap o Clap” and “Mestizo” deserve a special mention: this songs are in fact considered the first Hip-Hop songs ever. Many others have become iconic tracks: his cover of “The Bottle”, “Latin Strut”, “Johnny”, “Subway Joe”, and many many others.
Soul Tiger is the more dancefloor oriented of Alex’s works – here he tried to perfectly recreate the atmospheres of the late seventies work by Joe Bataan, a sound we might label as early Disco-Funk.
