About this item
If you like headbobbing grooves the raw voice of a soul diva and proper funk horns you'll dig The Exacters' latest groove bag "Ain't Gonna Lie" featuring Roxie Ray. The aside on this latest edition to the Our Label Records catalogue starts off with an intriguing guitar lick and builds up to a fully blown soul funk dance track. On the flip of this exclusive and limited Funk 45 "The Ashes" the hornsection takes the lead. A similarly laid back groove sets a heavy foundation for jazzy horns to take you on a convertible cruise on a hot summer evening. The Exacters are Guy Kilty (bass), Alex Stevenson (guitar) and Rob Shield (drums) and they make funk in Manchester, UK. For their debut single they drafted in some very special talent. Guy’s former Dojo Cuts bandmate, Roxie Ray, wrote and recorded the storming vocals for Ain’t Gonna Lie. Meanwhile, trumpet supremo Matt Burke arranged and produced the bruising horn parts on both “Ain’t Gonna Lie” and “The Ashes”. As for the future, their mission is simple: more uber-tight rhythms, mighty horns, and formidable guest vocalists.
