It’s been 8 years since Timmy Regisford released his hugely acclaimed ‘At The Club’ album on Tribe Records, so house heads worldwide will welcome the news that the New York legend is ready to reveal his highly anticipated new body of work by way of a mammoth 17 track album titled ‘7pm’ on DJ Spen’s Quantize Recordings. ‘7pm’ creatively joins the dots between deep, soul, jazzy and organic afro vibes as Timmy delivers some of his most innovative productions to date, dishing up an authentic taste of New York’s real soulful underground. Featuring 2 of New Jersey’s finest vocalists, Tiger Wilson, Felicia Graham and the signature smooth tones of Brooklyn’s vocal house legend Arnold Jarvis, this stellar album boasts a soundtrack of heartfelt songs with deep messages, through to full bodied instrumentals ripe with sublime solo’s, earthy grooves and an abundance of dance floor drama for the soulfully inclined.
“I feel this album is a mix of what’s currently going on in the Deep House scene, where things are getting back to vocals and songwriting. Some of my instrumental tracks are more musical, where others are more Afro Soul, which I think represents all New York underground House music, so I hope you enjoy it! 🎶 – Timmy Regisford
