"The dynamics"

The Dynamics are:

Mounam (singer, songwriter)
Originally from Cameroun, Mounam is a main figure on the Lyon and European music scene, with a 14 year-evolution through several Afro-American genres (gospel, soul, blues, jazz). Her explosive stage presence pushes the music on the edge of control!

Mister Day (singer, songwriter, musician)
Known for his solo projects on Rotax and Favorite, as well as his lead singing on the Metropolitan Jazz Affair project, Mr. Day is indisputedly "soul singer nr. 1" in his native France. With a sweet golden voice such as his, how can you argue with that?

Stevie Levi (singer, MC, songwriter)
Originally from Bristol, UK, and largely familiar with British sound sytems, Stevie moved to Lyon, France, to join the Dynamics. His style is between Horace Andy, Marvin Gaye and U Roy, a wide range of influences. On stage, he brings his warmth, passion and a rarely seen energy to the band.

Patchworks (musician, producer)
Bruno 'Patchworks' wears the title of "the hardest working man in French show business". He is the man behind the projects Metropolitan Jazz Affair and Mr President, working for various labels from Paris to Frankfurt, from Chicago to London. He is in charge of music and production.

Eric 'Flab Master Flab' (musician, dub wizard)
Hailing from Boston, USA, Flab is best described as a musical hobo. Working in recording studios for the past 10 years, he has twisted enough knobs to create a unique effect technique. On stage his vintage toys feed the 'Dynamic sound' with a proper timeless dub quality.

Their best field of expression is definitely live. Their performances receive such a great response that they truely merit their name!

Bio

According to vinyl specialists such as Dusty Groove, Piccadilly and Fat City Records, the Dynamics are a proper phenomenon! The demand for their 7-inches has prompted reissue after reissue and this hunger will be temporarily satisfied with Version Excursions, their first long player which is deeply rooted in soul!

The album presents cover versions of tunes that need to be covered. It is as quirky and diverse, as full of clashing influences, as the band members themselves. From the villages of Cameroun, the halls of Harvard, the palaces of Versailles, the boweries of Bristol, to the squares of Provence, Lyon, Frances Dynamics create music that is timeless, both vintage and fresh.

They wield their instruments and machines to build a bed for the innocence and honesty of this soulful vocal trio. Everything from pop, roots, disco, soul and rock is distilled through their fuzzy hypnotic filters. The result is a sound that takes you places, both modern and nostalgic. You should not be surprised to see Madonna, following Curtis Mayfield or the White Stripes on this tracklisting...
