Soul Covered Part 8 Electrojazzylatinfunk Edition

The beautiful cover of John Legend's 'All of me' by Nikki Oosterwijk on my latest cloudcast inspired me to create this eighth part of 'It's soul covered up'. Having just released her 'Lullabies for lost girls' EP, up-and-coming Montreal-based pop singer/songwriter and performance artist Callia Bara is already gearing up to release her new EP, 'Sex bomb'. Ahead of its release, Callia has just unveiled the EP's second single entitled 'BTS' (Behind The Scenes), which once again sees her collaborating with Brazilian producer Ftureable . He also produced the EP's first single 'Summa That' (source: Wonky Sensitive).

Mr President (picture) brings the soul and disco sound from the mid-seventies (MFSB, Roy Ayers, Love Unlimited Orchestra) into 2014 with his new album 'Hips shaking', just like Dr Who did with his Tardis! The track from Mongo Santamaria can be found on 'World’s funkiest covers' that came out on Cultures of Soul some time ago. More on covers and originals on Second Hand Songs. Previous parts: Enjoy!
