I had the opportunity to interview Leon Michels, co-founder of Truth & Soul Records and frontman of El Michels Affair this morning. We discussed his phenomenal new album Enter The 37th Chamber, which features full instrumental reinterpretations of classic tracks by the Wu-Tang Clan. He was extremely excited about his upcoming project with funk legend Lee “Little J.B.” Fields. Leon mentioned that when Truth & Soul started as a record label in 2004, the first mission was to ‘record a sweet soul record that would be modeled after the near perfect formula that bands like The Moments, The Delfonics, and The Stylistics had created.’ Based on the first single “Ladies,” he’s achieved his goal.
Michels was nice enough to give us an exclusive MP3 of Aloe Blacc’s remix of Lee Fields song, “Truth, Deception, & Lies.”
