Where Have the Soultans Gone?

(5 out of 5 stars)
"I was working in Eastern Europe when I first heard the Soultans singing "Cant Keep My Hands Off You." Imagine an old Motown sound with a driving underbeat and without any bubblegum pop brightness and you'll get the music of the Soultans. Eminently danceable, their songs inject a weird feeling of old motown nostalgia into Eurotrash dance music. These songs feel like old friends whether you've heard them before or not.
The Soultans are made of Femi Olakeji (From Africa via Germany?), Brit Scott Winter and Yank Martin Broadie. Despite the strong resemblance to Seal by not one but two members of the group, they have never collaborated with anyone famous. They hit it big in Germany (and France too, I think) but never in the US.
The Soultan's hit album Blood Sweat and Tears appeared in 1997, and swiftly disappeared, but in 2005 a solo artist hit the charts with a song that sounds very much like the Soultan's brand of dance soul. If you like the song "Femme Like U" by K. Maro, buy this CD quick before it disappears."
