about

Three years ago, Soulpersona and Princess Freesia began the journey of Fast Forward. Researching and ruminating on stylistic endeavours fashioned by their yesteryear peers, they blew off the dust to uncover 80s tracks that inspired their own modern flavour and quilted together a unique pastiche of sounds to pay tribute. The resultant songs SoulP and Freesia have created both surprises and stimulates listeners already familiar with the era, but also strikes a chord with newer generations as yet unschooled.

This album could be described as a respectful rhythmical head nod to the 1980’s. Princess Freesia beautifully colours in the canvas with her clever wordsmitheries, trademark lyrical gymnastics, and a vocal masterclass which takes on many guises and characters throughout the duration of the album. Soulpersona's production provides a soulful, crisp, slick and nostalgic musical backdrop which draws upon rare grooves and melodies hailing from a time when large shoulder pads were acceptable and a perm (even on a man) was the norm.

Fast Forward features a very special duet with Jocelyn Brown as well as featured guest musicians such as Marlon McClain (Pleasure) and keyboard wizard Carl Hudson

"From the opening bars of 'Fast Forward' to the closing chords of 'Heaven To Me' this near perfect collection of hook laden infectious grooves not only hits the musical sweet spot but knocks it right out of the park. Freesia, the lady I've dubbed the Teena Marie for the 'Now' generation, and the seriously talented Soulpersona have taken us to the next level of soulful electronica."

Tony Minvielle - SoulandJazz.com / Into Somethin'

"The sheer exuberance and dedication to the groove has to be admired, embraced and welcomed. They seriously just don't make music like this anymore, but thankfully Soulpersona and Princess Freesia are in an elite club who do. So grab those skates, pop your headphones on and roller-boogie all night long"
