What Goes Around Comes Around

A 11 track funk album (41m 57s) — released October 11th 2010 on Record Kicks
The Diplomats of Solid Sound are back with their 5th full length, and if the last album was their senior effort, with "What Goes Around Comes Around" the band has officially graduated! Once again mixed and edited by Freestyle's boy wonder Adam Gibbons aka Lack Of Afro and featuring The Diplomettes on vocals, the cuts included here are a strong showcase of the growing maturity and sophistication of the group. From the sing-along chorus of opening track "B-O-O-G-A-L-O-O", to the smooth soul number that gives the album its title, the uptempo "Back Off", or the instrumental groover "Bailout", "What Goes Around Comes Around" draws on a variety of styles but always keeping things soulful and funky! The vintage sound of The Diplomats has been fine-tuned by almost a decade of releases, and ever since their first album in 2001 the band has been making a name for itself by firmly establishing it's credentials as one of the tightest contemporary soul outfits out there. The group can already count on the support of names such as Pete Isaac (Jelly Jazz), Mark Lamarr (BBC 2), Craig Charles (BBC 6), Rob Luis (Tru Thoughts), and Michael Ruetten (Compost Records), just to name a few, but with "What Goes Around Comes Around" The Diplomats Of Solid Sound raise the stakes up a notch. Though the formula remains unchanged, there's an added depth to the music, making this album a heavyweight must-have no matter how you listen to it!
