Sy Smith and Mark De Clive-Lowe – an amazing combination that makes for an equally amazing record! Sy's always been great, no matter what the setting – but this time around, all instruments and production are handled by Mark, who gives the record a sweetly cosmic groove! The album bristles with excitement from the very first note – and Smith's singing has this wickedly spacious quality – all the depth of soul we've loved from the start, but a new sense of power that slides in perfectly with the crackling rhythms and jazzy keyboards from De Clive-Lowe. Rahsaan Patterson guests on the cut "Nights (Feel Like Getting Down)" – a beautiful remake of the Billy Ocean classic – and other tunes include a version of Teena Marie's "Teena" – plus great Smith originals that include "The Fast & Curious", "Truth", "Personal Paradise", "The Primacy Effect", "Messages From The Stars", and "The Ooh To My Aah".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
