Various Rainbow Soul: Volume One
- Words: Tomas Palermo
- Label: Phuture Lounge
Manchester neo-soul/broken beat label Phuture Lounge has come out the gate like a rocket, off and into the stars. Backed by production duo Phuturistix, the label boasts a stable of brilliant but unknown artists from the UK, Germany, and even San Francisco. PL takes the "soul" in their comp's title literally; silky R&B cuts abound, including Hamburg-based Oezlem's Patrice Rushin-inspired "New Era"-gorgeous! The bouncy funk of Fyza's "Summer Groove" will satisfy IG Culture fans, and Mr. J takes you between the sheets with his "Intergalactic Love Affair." Vintage Philly and Chicago soul inspires as this spaceship takes us all higher.
