Soulful Can Also Be Funky

Yolanda Wyns - I Know You, I Live You (Joey Negro Remix)
Buy at Juno | Released by Z Records

Masters At Work - Backfired feat. India (Joey Negro Remix)
Buy at Juno | Released by Z Records

These are definitely the pearls from the soulful 20 Years Of Joey Negro compilation, but you might wanna check the others out too in case they take your fancy as well. These are actually Grant Nelson edits, but surely most of the honor still is entitled to Joey.

Both feature fat and jazzy bass lines, soulful vocals, funky guitars and wonderful brass sections. The first one is a bit more light and perhaps easier to like from the first time heard. With that spicy saxophone solo, it's definitely a must have if you're into soulful stuff. The second one is pretty awesome too, a bit more fat and maybe not as "clean" sounding, but still a great one to have in your collection.
