One of my favorite things as a DJ, music lover and someone who writes about music is getting on the ground floor of an artists journey and seeing their progression and maturity of sound while adding their releases to the collection. One of the artists that I’d like to say that I’m a proud member of their fan club is Scone Cash Players who I’ve enjoyed their music and has really taken space in my regular rotation of at home listening. Led by organist Adam Scone who has really put his best foot forward with pushing Scone Cash Players to the forefront, the future is looking extremely bright as they set up for their debut release, “Brooklyn To Brooklin” on Daptone Records which seems like the perfect fit.
“Daptone Records is proud to present Brooklyn to Brooklin, the Scone Cash Players inaugural release on Daptone Records. Longtime Daptone Hammond ace, Adam Scone was seduced when his traveling performances brought him from Brooklyn, New York to Brooklin, Brasil, where he found a trove of new love and music. Produced by Bosco Mann, and featuring Jimmy James (True-Loves, Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio) on guitar and Neal Sugarman (Sugarman 3, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings) on tenor sax the group took this newfound inspiration into the studio and tracked some of the freshest soulful music we’ve heard in some time.”
“With help from his intergalactic choir, the opening track, “Cold 40’s”, leaps out of the speakers with the screaming organ sound that has put Scone on the short list of goto organ players. The Hammond then gives way to a dreamy, funky groove that’s perfectly seasoned with ethereal background vocals that will transport you to a place where summer is on repeat. “Brooklyn to Brooklin” brings you deep into a fever-dream of tropical rhythms and seductive flourishes of psychedelia, sure to delight dancers and dreamers alike. Come take a trip!”
