When they hit, all who heard, who caught the vibe, got down with it. Funky dreads from across the water. It was the late eighties. They were a deep Camden town amalgamation of dance sounds lead by Jazzie B (Trevor Beresford Romeo).
Over twenty years later they were still deep in the pocket. Not just a hit in the studio, they were an aggregation that could do it live, featuring the exuberant vocals of Caron Wheeler.
Soul II Soul had an upful, feel good sound: massive vocals, pounding beats, and treacherous dance moves–howsoever your tastes might flow.
