Ncircle releases capital new LP ‘Old School Groove’

The Los Angeles band known as Ncircle has released their latest and greatest full-length record album, titled, “Old School Groove.” The album has been released on the Komplete Productions music label. Coming hot on the tail of the single release of the album’s title track, “Old School Groove”, on September 6th of 2012, this staggering new achievement completes what they started with 40 full minutes of classy and excellent music. For fans of jazz, soul, blues and R ‘n’ B who feel as if there hasn’t been a true release of genuine quality in their favorite genre for some time, “Old School Groove” stands as a prime example of refined style, precision playing, and that classic old-school groove for miles and miles.

 

This genuine style is the founding principle of Ncircle (often stylized NCIRCLE). Without baring their soul, Ncircle could not exist.

 

“Keeping it real is what drives and motivates Ncircle,” writes the band in their official bio. “With the world saturated with fabrication, we focus on the real, bringing real music that touches the heart and soul, and lyrics that enlighten and inspire.”

 

This earnest, honest musical mentality goes all the way to their core. Upon being asked how they became involved with music, they respond clearly and concisely.

 

“The band members all share the same entrance to music,” they write. “That is, we did not choose music – we were chosen by music.”

 

This is clear by the time the listener gets halfway through the first track of “Old School Groove.” Nobody can write music this way unless the music is speaking to the artists, and no artists can play music like this unless the song is speaking directly through them.

 

Ncircle cites as main artistic influences legends such as War, Tower of Power, Heat Wave, The Gap Band, Earth Wind & Fire, Kool & The Gang, BB King, Bobby Blue Bland, and Bob Marley.

 

“Old School Groove” by Ncircle is available online worldwide.

Los Angeles Band NCIRCLE Releases New Single “Old School Groove”

NCIRCLE, a Los Angeles based R&B/Soul band, has released their newest single, “Old School Groove”

NCIRCLE, a Los Angeles based R&B/Soul band, has released their newest single, “Old School Groove.” The track itself is a heartfelt, earnest return to the days of R&B and Soul music when it was not possible to form a band without obvious talent on the part of each musician involved. NCIRCLE is a return to the glory days of Motown, a time before such stage magic as autotune and believable synthesized bass, when good music also meant good style, good taste, and even good intentions.

If anyone can show modern music fans what it means to make truly excellent music – if anyone can remind the R&B industry what Rhythm-and-Blues used to mean to people – it’s NCIRCLE. “Old School Groove” is a fine single with which to introduce them, too.

 

Their sound is part Neville Brothers, part Isley Brothers, part Parliament Funkadelic, part Al Green. Their guitar (Michael McDonald) plays clean-channel cool jazz leads that never intrude, while their bass (John Haynes) effortlessly leads the melody way out front. They have a flawless sax crooning leads (Andre Delano), and a keyboard making a velvet curtain of sound in the background (Ed Roth). The drums are led by Kenny “Blanket” Williams, who lays back like an old pro and keeps time like an atomic clock. The vocals, however, are really what make NCIRCLE stand out. Led by the outstanding T.C. Moses, the band features disco-quality harmonies and falsettos that would make the Bee Gees proud. T.C. himself is never misses a note, never sounds “pitchy,” and is never guilty of the showboating, over-souling runs up and down the musical scale that plague R&B radio stations all across America. NCIRCLE’s lyrics, too, are worth noting.

 

In fact, the band is perhaps best represented by their own words from this particular single, when they sing, “Hey, DJ, I’m not tryin’ to bring down your pop and rap. I just want to let you know, soul music is where it’s at. Before you know it, it’s gonna be toppin’ the charts because it’s the kind of music that touches everybody’s heart.”

 

Of their intentions, drummer Blanket has said, “With the world saturated with fabrication, we focus on the real, bringing real music that touches the heart and soul, and lyrics that enlighten and inspire.” Without a doubt, NCIRCLE has done this with their new single, “Old School Groove.” Their music is indeed made for “dancin’, party-enhancin’,” and every music fan deserves to give it a spin.
