"In the Middle" features Daz-I-Kue on the beats and boards, with long-time collaborator Joy Jones on vocals, (accompanied by John Arnold, Jeremy Ellis, Amy Arena and K Claude Harris), and offers the listener a lively boogie tune that takes you back... just in time to be shifted into the future as Dominic "Domu" Stanton, producer/DJ/
"Magic" features Detroit's own John Arnold & Jeremy Ellis, both of whom provide not only their solid production skills, but the long-lost art of musicianship with Jeremy on keys, John on guitar and special guest Paul Randolph (Jazzanova) on bass and providing vocals! To round it out, up-start producer, Ezel (Yoruba Records) kicks in with a deep, soulful House remix that doubles as part epilogue to "THE GOODNESS EP" as well as part prelude, foreshadowing the good things to come from FSR in the near future. Stay tuned for the full release of "THE GOODNESS" coming out Fall, 2010.
Along with unleashing this beast of beats on the online public via iTunes, Amazon, etc., FUTURE SOUL RECORDS invites the listener to the official release party for "THE GOODNESS EP", on March 26th, which is set to take place during the 2010 Winter Music Conference in Miami at Jazid. There will be live performances by John Arnold & Jeremy Ellis with Paul Randolph, as well as well as DJ sets from Daz-I-Kue, Dego from 4Hero, and other special guests...

About Future Soul Records: Although officially launching as far back as May of 2008, it's taken some months now for Future Soul Records, an up-and-coming U.S. based music imprint, to get it's first few releases out for public consumption. Originally limited to a set number of 12"s that were quietly distributed earlier this year, the labels first release came in the form of a stellar cover of Barney "Blair" Perry's disco anthem "Nightlife" from the dynamic Detroit duo John Arnold & Jeremy Ellis (Ubiquity, Transmat, Planet E), and to great review from DJ's and listeners alike, including high kudos from the highly esteemed Radio1 tastemaker Gilles Peterson. Currently the label is happy to announce the recent release of the soon to be neo-soul classic "Godchild", the twelve track debut album from Los Angeles based signer-songwriter Joy Jones. The Goodness EP marks the third release for the label of what will be many more in the coming years to come.
