Soul Basement (from the album Oneness)
Much like the music that comes from the band, Soul Basement are a partnership of musicians, creating a sound that blends diverse sonic styles as the combination of voice and multi-dimensional rhythms soundtrack Oneness. Music and message leapfrog across Oneness, the recent release from Soul Basement. The group core is the voice of Jay Nemor and musical backing led by Italian producer Fabio Puglisi on keyboards. Furthering a musical legacy begun by Gil-Scott Heron, Soul Basement wraps the Jazz origins of its music in layers of funk-inflected boogie, smooth Soul, and Spoken Word, bandmember Fabio reflecting that ‘we've always liked our songs to leave something to the listeners, we believe music should always have something to offer, otherwise would be devoid of its main reason to be. Most people today think of music as a way to have some temporary fun, but there's way more to it than just mere pleasure’.
The mission that Soul Basement embarks on can be heard in Oneness as late-night whispers (“Slowly”), ruminations (“Who Really Knows”), calls to the spirit (“S.O.U.L.”), and answers within reach (“Better Days”). Inspiration blended with the soulful sounds of a Jazz combo find fertile space to grow in Oneness as Soul Basement support with the story of “Hang on In There”, firmly stand in unity for “Count on Me”, and simplify society with “Love to the People”.
