Satisfaction

    The mythical 'Satisfaction' album by Aurra has been folklore for three decades. There were rumors that a 5th Aurra album produced by Dayton Ohio Funk Legend Steve Washington was recorded just after the Salsoul years. The Album was recorded in 1983 with his wife Sheila who had just finished writing and touring with The Brides Of Funkenstein. Plans were made for a release on Quincy Jones' newly formed Qwest Records, but legal troubles complicated the release and no one was quite sure what happened to the master tapes, not even Steve himself. Then in 2012, the tapes surfaced and Family Groove delivered the music back to Steve Washington & Sheila Brody. This is Electronic Funk and R&B at its finest, recorded during a pivotal year in Modern Funk music, post-Disco, right at the beginning of Hip-Hop's finest hour when Boogie and Electro music was making the scene in New York. Documenting the inception of the drum machine, the grooves smoke as Washington delivers the Dayton Funk style. Mean and lean basslines, irresistible hooks & towering vocal riffs with crisp, tight dance rhythms. The relentless flow gives the feeling of an endless party, which the Satisfaction album definitely provides.
