From the time Don -E landed on the 4th & Broadway recording platform in 1992, a “Little Star” was born and destined to become engulfed in the musical arena. Don-E is still relevant to date with his own unique brand of “Ragga Funk”. Like many other gifted individuals coming from a stringent gospel background with his father being a pastor, Don-E was secretly absorbing plenty of the secular music which would shape his musical inner-vision and mind. These influences included Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway, Michael Jackson, Dennis Brown, Sugar Minot and a local sound system Dread Diamonds.
Like another one man band musical genius Prince, Don-E is a multi instrumentalist as showcased, on his debut album “Unbreakable” practically playing every instrument. “Love Makes The World Go Round” was a top 20 hit and inspired Prince Markie Dee’s “Typical Reasons (Swing My Way)”, with “Unbreakable” and “Mystery” causing plenty ripples and wave in the world music aquarium. His diversity has linked him with producer Ron Tom and pop female groups All Saint’s and The Sugar Babes. Don-E has supported the late soul bro numero uno James Brown, R Kelly, co written a track with D’Angelo Stone Cold and is part of Grace Jones’s regular touring band.
Don-E’s diversity has seen him work with respected music producer Brian Eno, Paulo Nutini and co write recently a UK No 4 hit “I’m All Cried Out with Blonde. Don-E is the catalyst for the new resurgence created in the recognition for the UK soul ambassadors, The British Collective alongside, Omar, Leee John, Noel McKoy and Junior Giscombe. His last album for Dome “Little Star” in 2013 was a long awaited and well received one with lots of “grown and sex e” smooth grooves with ooze.
Don-E loves being creative in the studio and the prelude to this album “Future Rare Grooves” with no plugging machine behind it, sold very well independently, with it’s lovers rock, street jazz soul edge for those who love the “Big people tingz”. This new track appropriately titled “Grown N Sex-E” is a taster off his forthcoming album “Future Rare Grooves Vol 2”, is destined to create the mood for increasing the baby boom population, of those who like to dance “Between the sheets” like The Isley Brothers. It does what it says on the tin like Ron Seal, with a Marvin Gaye “Lets Get It On” flavour as Don-E breaths his zephyr like falsetto and varied vocal octaves. KFP Enterprises are proud to service this to anyone who loves real classic sounding yet progressive soul music. Available via iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby, the album drops second week in August so digest this sweet tasting edible biscuit in the meantime.
