Beta Hector is the solo project of Simon Hill, founding member of British funk band, Baby Charles. This 7″ features the enthralling Baby Charles’ songstress, Dionne Charles. Having been compared to Sharon Jones of The Dap Kings, Dionne is known for her unique and boisterous vocals that smoothly ride over a funky, hard hitting drum groove.
The multi-talented Simon Hill plays all the instruments himself and runs them through an electronic process; creating the raw, gritty sound and vibe heard on both tracks. It’s all live instrumentation, but with an experimental thread of electro, synths, and psychedelic delays that weave through a solid funk rhythm.
Both tracks on this 7″ feature on the Tru Thoughts Funk compilation, a classic super-heavyweight collection of all the best funk songs to have graced Tru Thoughts over the years, including songs from Quantic, Alice Russell, Nostalgia 77, The Bamboos, Lizzy Parks and many more.
