Clayton & Fulcrum "Easy to Love" EP

Clayton and Fulcrum produce soul breaks straight out of Philadephia, PA and have been making music since 2002. Using a combination of live instrumentation, synths, and samples they weave a soulful funky deep sound. The "Easy to Love" EP features a remix from Rory Hoy (Howlin' Records) UK, and 3 new songs from the soulful duo. "Easy To Love" has a deep house feel that would appeal to fans of Crazy P.. "The Get Down" is a sublime piece of nu-disco but with a nice breakbeat instead of a 4/4 drum, Rory Hoy provides the remix and brings up the energy a bit and gets a little funky with it. Finally "Empire Sun" goes left-field jazz with a nice shuffle break, sweet horns and some seriously deep chords.
