But upon streaming the 12-song Love Is King compilation featuring reverential contributions by Soulections talented artist roster, were unequivocally sold. The inventive mix is indeed ambitiously sublime, with no foolishness to be detected at all. Consistent with their muses own versatility, the inspired compositions included here flow seamlessly from more uptempo, danceable fare to chilled-out, contemplative sounds, coalescing for one invigorating headrush of a listening experience. Our favorite offerings include Zikomos Fly Love (which flips I Couldnt Love You More from 1992s Love Deluxe), estas Only One (rework of Sally from 1984s Diamond Life), and starRos Sweet Lies of Sweet Love (remix of Like a Tattoo from Love Deluxe).
Our profound thanks to the Soulection crew for keeping all of us pacified for the time being with this savory ear candy, while we impatiently await Sades follow-up to 2010s Soldier of Love LP. Love Is King can be streamed in all of its sonic splendor via Soulections Soundcloud page or below. All twelve tunes can also be downloaded as mp3 files for free via Soulections website here.
