This Is Gizelle Smith & The Mighty Mocambos

A 12 track funk single () — released October 19th 2009 on Legere

Ever since their first collaboration on the "Mocambo Funk Forty Fives" compilation, things have gained momentum for Gizelle Smith, the "Golden Girl of Funk", and the much respected Hamburg-based label and live band The Mighty Mocambos. Their first single "Working Woman" became an overnight smash and a prime-time club favourite of funk & soul DJs from all over the world, producer legend and Grammy nominee Kenny Dope (Masters at Work, Bucketheads) picked up and remixed the song for his own label Kay Dee Records. Gizelle Smith & Mocambo now step up with a full-length album of bonafide sister funk. They show true exception to modern techniques and create their highly regarded, unique and raw soul sound as a refreshing alternative to post-millenium plastic pop without being a mere retro rip-off. Blazing horns, soulful guitars, driving drums and basslines combined with Gizelle's gripping and powerful voice all weave together to create a long player that is varied and coherent at the same time. "Strong album - packs a serious punch" Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show, BBC 6 Music "A breath of fresh air" Keb Darge "Really amazing stuff, full of killers" Nick / Record Kicks
