Release Your Soul (Incl. Timmy Regisford & Adam Rios, Vick Lavender Mixes)
TRIBE025 | 2012-01-03

Next up on Tribe is a fantastic vocal cut from budding South African artist Tumelo. Tumelo hails from Sebokeng in South Africa and was inspired to write and produce songs from a very early age.

Throughout the last ten years Tumelo has worked on various projects as a producer and songwriter. In 2004 Tumelo meet with legendary South African producer Black Coffee and together they produced a remix for a song titled Expressions, which was later released on a compilation titled Outrageous Records. 

A few years past and then Tumelo began work on his debut album Arise and Shine again joining forces again with Black Coffee along with a whole host of talented names including Vikter Duplaix, Deborah Frazier, J.R. and Zano. 

Release Your Soul is the stand out track from the album, which was released earlier this year in South Africa on Soulistic Music and was nominated for Beat Urban Dance Album at this years South African Music Awards. 

It's been a floor filler on the Tribe dance floor for the last six months and one that always gets requested and we're proud to finally release it with fantastic fresh new interpretations from New York's Timmy Regisford & Adam Rios and ChicagosVick Lavender.

Timmy Regisford & Adam Rioss mix takes the track firmly to the heart of the dance floor with a bouncy early nineties Chicago vibe about it.

Sophisticado main man, Vick Lavender, currently on tour down in South Africa delivers two different mixes of supreme quality musicianship showing us why hes one of the men of the moment right now.


Written, produced and performed by Tumelo Ruele. Mixed by Black Coffee at the Soulistic Music Studios.
