Give Me Your Love/Tonic Strider

A 2 track funk single (8m 23s) — released April 26th 2010 on Record Kicks

This highly anticipated 45 introduces new RK band The Third Coast Kings, a seven element deep funk and soul outfit from the home of many a great artist; Detriot/Ann Arbour, Michigan. In the tradition of the best 60s and 70s funk groups, the Kings detonate with an explosive sonic force that is guaranteed to make you move those hips and let that backbone slip! The buzz surrounding this 45 has been steadily increasing ever since its release was announced, with DJs such as Ian Wright, DJ Andy Smith and Adrian Gibson booking their copy much in advance. The gritty sound of The Kings is the raw concoction of horn-driven hooks, devastating rhythm and an overall tightness that has made them a favorite in the Motor City area and beyond. Both "Give Me Your Love" on the A side and "Tonic Stride" on the flip throw down some heavy grooves intended to rock the livest dancefloors and restore deep funk and soul to its rightful spot on the musical map. The Third Coast Kings are a full-fledged funk force!
