Anthony Valadez feat. Miles Bonny – “Searching For”...

You know from the first notes from the Rhodes organ that Anthony Valadez’s “Searching For” is precisely what you’ve been looking for. At least I know it for me. Miles Bonny starts crooning, the bass line kicks in, the trumpet adeptly crawls into the groove, and then, is that(?), double time hi-hats. The quavering strings complete the ensemble. And just when the song is at full bloom, it ends. Keep mashing that play button. This is 21st century rare grooves. This is the music neo-soul promised us but delivered instead headwraps and frustration. Fuck with Vala! Cop the album, In Search Of…, on March 18th from Plug Research.
