Sydneysoul/funk outfit DOJO CUTS return with a super soulful second album entitled “Take From Me”, once again featuring the sizzling, smoky vocals of Miss Roxie Ray. This much anticipated follow-up to their debut full-length sees the band taking it back to the roots of soul, but at the same time giving a nod to contemporary funk. With the liner notes written by Russ Dewbury (A Night At The Jazz Rooms) and the support of the entire Daptone Records family aka Gabriel Roth, Neal Sugarman and Homer Steinwess, this Aussie outfit prepares for what is without a doubt a significant step forward in the band’s musical journey.
This is the album where all of Dojo Cuts’ experience and hard work reaches its deeply soulful zenith, with mellow moments – such as in “I’d Rather Go Blind”, “I Can Give” and title track “Take From Me”, as well as gritty straight-up funk pieces like “Mamacita”, “Sonny’s Strut” or the Marva Whitney & James Brown classic “What Do I Have To Do”. Add to that some slices of feel-good crossover soul such as in “My Lovin’ Is All About You” and first single “Easy To Come Home”, and the result is a guaranteed instant classic! The secret is out indeed, Dojo Cuts are ready to rock your world!
