We’re finishing the year with some serious soul as we feature one of our most requested albums D’Angelo Voodoo.
Recorded at the legendary Electric Lady Studios in New York City the album featured a loose groove base style which was a departure from D’Angelo’s first album Brown Sugar. Blues, gospel, funk, R&B, soul, hip-hop, classic rock and jazz are all drawn on to make an album which stands out as one of the finest albums of the noughties.
There’s a feeling of having travelled when you get to the end of Voodoo and it’s a journey we are looking forward to taking again, join us at one of our intimate listening sessions around the world to experience D’Angelo as never before.
Voodoo is a double album so at London’s event we will be starting the album presentation at 16:45, please arrive early to avoid disappointment!!
