This premier funk jazz unit has solidified its undisputed place as the true merchants of groove. Masterminded by writer/producer Steward Wade, Down To The Bone has churned out hit after head-bobbin' hit, not only capturing the attention of radio with its thick, throbbing funk but has also established itself as one of the most in demand touring bands in the world.
The Main Ingredients takes the band into double digit territory marking their 10th release and one that takes the band back to its original roots with 10 tracks still steeped in groove but with a heavy dose of 21st century glaze. There is still plenty of meat on the bone here with tracks like 'Uptown Hustle' and 'Second Nature' that will find welcome satisfaction among their minions along with a heaping helping of non-signature flavors like the sides 'Watch Me Fly' co-written by label mate Oli Silk and the Band New Heavies inspired 'Closer', both featuring vocals from Imani. All in all a funk/ groove feast sure to invigorate the taste buds of all who crave music that makes you move.
The Main Ingredients has, as the title suggests, the base ingredients that got the band from Wade s early concept to the massive success it is today yet purposefully sprinkled with some surprise spices to keep the sides interesting, funky and on the edge.
