The ACID LOUNGE series of recordings is where Dave has been combining his jazz flavoured guitar style with his love of upbeat and laidback dance orientated grooves. Here on ACID LOUNGE vol 3, Dave has again retained that vision and has also been fortunate to be able to showcase the vocal talents of some emerging artists together with the superb musicianship of some seasoned professionals at the top of their game. While some tracks are squarely aimed at the dance floor, they feature some highly engaging and melodic solos to keep the interest of the ears as well as the feet. Other tracks are more contemplative in mood, where you can close your eyes and be transported to a place of aural relaxation.
Welcome to ACID LOUNGE vol 2. This time together with some new highly melodic and funky instrumentals, Dave has collaborated with some superb female vocalists to bring an album full of emotion and soulful grooves. We have the fantastic JULIA QUINN who not only contributed some excellent vocal performances but also is credited as lyricist and co-writer on her featured tracks. The divine and highly versatile STEPH ANDREWS delivers an emotive vocal on the RnB influenced 'Now you're gone'. The incredible SARAH DEE is in fine form on 'Want you to stay' and Dave is pleased to have the vocal talents of the amazing CHARLU featured on the 'nu bossa' mix of the forth coming dance anthem 'Break these chains' On all the vocal and instrumental tracks, Dave's trademark smooth, soulful and at the same time musically engaging guitar playing is at the fore.
All music composed, arranged and produced by DAVE MASCALL. All lyrics composed by DAVE MASCALL and JULIA QUINN.
