Soul Clique is the creation of a trio of Detroit musicians and a DJ who carry a pedigree worth noting just before you get completely lost in their ethereal, funky, slowburn grooveworld. Soul Clique is Enemy Squad and P-Funk touring band member Duminie DePorres, Aretha Franklin touring bassist Joseph Hayden and DJ James "The Blackman" Harris. Together, they've managed to pull off a surprisingly cool summertime-vibe record. Soul Clique provides the soundtrack to an evening's driving, sipping, loving, grooving, etc. An endearingly creepy sci-fi element and well-chosen samples and atmospheric scratching slip into the mix often enough to keep the proceedings from getting too straightforward.
