New single "Enfant Terrible" out on March 10th, debut album "Disastro" released this summer!
Now ladies and gentlemen, the man you've all been waiting to hear...
Set to a propulsive disco-shuffle so addictive Pete Doherty would free-base it, "Can't Stop Moving" is a euphoric cut-up that's probably on your radio right now.
But there's more to Sonny J than 'Summer Nights' rave-ups and irresistible, prozac pop. He wants to free your mind, too. Listen a little closer to "Can't Stop Moving" and you'll discover samples of lysergic gonzo-astrology ("You have a tendency to drift") and snippets of '70's TV arcana ranging from The Rockford Files to The Brady Bunch - we're guessing here - which will leave even The Avalanches scratching their heads.
On top of this, you'll find "Disastro", the debut album. Recorded in Sonny's tumbledown Beach Hut studio, "Disastro" is a record of dazzling dexterity, featuring rapping French schoolchildren, old seaside cabaret stars, hypnotists and local drunks, all washed down with healthy doses of inspiration from bizarre, dusty records that have been unearthed by a man with a heart and a home for forgotten souls.
"Disastro" is the soundtrack to heaving dancefloors, moonlit parties and sweaty rock 'n' roll clubs. It's the perfect album to the end of the summer, the blissed-out climax that you don't want to end. Look for it this autumn.
So who is this masked mixologist? No clues as yet. Other than to say, Sonny J and his band are planning live shows for later this year which will delight anyone who thought Sly Stone at Loveboxxx should have gone on for a week. Until then, there's "Can't Stop Moving". Crank it up.
As the tune goes, "That song's just special".
The first live show has been announced. By the time 24th October comes around, anticipation will be at fever-pitch, and anyone with a ticket to Cargo will be a very, very lucky punter. Cargo will see Sonny J and band in action for the first time. Expect a Sly And The Family Stone/Gnarls Barkley extravaganza.
