It's all shaping up so well. On fire and best track yet but they're all compelling so far 'Bone and Soil' from the powerful upcoming Native Rebel Chelsea Carmichael 22 October release The River Doesn’t Like Strangers there's a lot going on within the sound. Eddie Hick for instance on drums driving hard on the no messing saxophone-led onslaught. The London-out-of-Warrington player is inspired by the poet Nayyirah Waheed on this latest track and Chelsea adds: “I feel that the way that I play on this record draws inspiration from the lineage of black music making and the Caribbean diasporas. It only felt right to reference my own lineage, and what has always been inside me even before a saxophone was put in my hands.” Chelsea Carmichael, photo: Adama Jalloh

It's interesting a little while on to listen today to the Sinephro remix of Nubya Garcia's 'Together Is A Beautiful Place To Be' which is on the Source remix album We Move out on the 22nd that adds an expansive dimension to the powerful track and allows a new entry point to it.
