First Listen: Adina Howard returns as a "Mind Reader"

(January 23, 2020) The members of Reel People made themselves at home as longtime friends of the Soul Tracks’ family, developing an identity as both artists and international dancefloor geniuses.  Their keen ability to connect with popular and promising talent has further expanded their musical horizons.  Between their remixes, original productions and an ever expanding Reel People Music catalog, current primary members Oli Lazarus and Mike Patto consistently create a beat parade of surefire head boppers, taking such notable artists as Angie Stone, The Foreign Exchange, R.P. favorite Tony Momrelle and others to exhilarating heights.

Reel People continues tapping into a pool of top talent, this time pairing with a veteran R&B vocalist. Our latest First Listen welcomes the return of 90’s hit-maker, Adina Howard (“Freak Like Me,” “Do You Wanna Ride”), guided by the Swedish DJ/producer’s Opolopo’s house perspective of “Mind Reader.” Balancing Opolopo’s easy-going funk with jazzy synthesizer fills, “Mind Reader” provides another invigorating club moment for old school urban connoisseurs.  And Howard’s understated yet confident performance keeps the soulful flow intact.  Check it out below.
