About

Since eight years Mo’Horizons are releasing constantly albums on highest level. Now its time for the fourth longplayer, first time on their own new imprint Agogo Records.

`Sunshine Today`- the positive energy of the sun was always inspiration for the music of Ralf Droesemeyer and Mark ‘Foh’ Wetzler. touring around the world – Australia, Brasil, Puerto Rico, South Africa and nearly complete Europe – and collecting music from all over, this new album contains a package full of clever used quotes from the last 50 years of music history.

Soul Sugar, Latin Fruits, Jazzy Juice and Shakin’ Clubbeats are the ingredients of this self-titled ‘Groove Cocktail’. A brillant mixture of songs with jazzy attitude – think of Ramsey Lewis or Jimmy Smith -, kind of percussive spiritual dance, straight latin, big downbeats or clubby dancefloor like Maceo meets Tito Puente.

12 compositions by Mo’Horizons and one latin coverversion of Bill Withers classic ‘Lovely Day’ ( ‘Dia Encantador’ ). 5 singer, 10 musicians from 7 different nations ( Italy, Belgium, Venezuela, Brazil, Chile, Senegal, Germany ) are part of this soulful piece of music. Some of them are part of the Mo’Horizons Soundsystem, like Afrosoulsinger Denise M’Baye, Grammy winning percussionist Néné Vasquez or Camille de Bruyne from Belgium.
