For many years, this 11-member band, featuring multi-talented artist Ecco DiLorenzo, performed
their soul shows from Paris to Sardinia – Old-School Soul of the 60s / 70s was their calling card
in the south of good ol Germany for over 20 years.
In 2015, they released their debut album with 12 original tracks, all written by the band,
and financed by more than 200 fans through a fulminant Crowdfunding campaign.
Since then, the title song has been in rotation in Munich’s radio stations, and the album has moved up
in the same year in the iTunes charts as the best German R& B / Soul album.
The title song can be found alongside artists like Justin Timberlake, Jill Scott and
Lalah Hathaway on the SONY compilation Playboy Late Night Session Vol.1 (compiled by DJ John Munich)
Their latest project was producing a soul version of the NDW hit “Schickeria”
for the Spider Murphy Gang
Stylistically the album goes from the early R & B (“MY BRAND-NEW GIBSON 335” –
a tribute to the recently deceased B.B.KING) to
symphonic 70s soul (“RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE”), to extreme ballads
like “NEVER WORRY” and “GRAY VEILED DAYS” to gospel (“UNITE”)
and James Brown-inspired hard funk (like the socially critical
“DON’T BLAME IT ON THE MAN, BLAME IT ON THE SYSTEM”)
The title song “Soultrain Babadee” is a play on the TV-show “Soul Train”,
which aired in the US from 1971 to 2009 weekly and nationwide.
All well-known performers of soul music presented their hits on this show.
In the soul discos the term “Soultrain” stood for a special dance ritual:
All the dancers formed a line consisting of two rows.
The respective couple at the top of the rows danced through the line thus creating
and showing their best moves. For their official video “Innersoul”casted
30 exceptional dancers and performed Munich’s first “Soultrain”!
Traditionally the band ends each of their concerts with a Soul Train Line.
So people: GET READY!
