Soul & Funk
Bobby Oroza 'Lonely Girl / Alone Again' 7"
Following up on the success of his debut album This Love, and by popular demand, we had to put these two tunes on a 7 for the DJs and collectors. The A side Lonely Girl is a uptempo dancer sure to fill the floor at soul parties around the world. Bobby finds a kindred spirit in an introverted young lady and puts his best foot forward to persuade her to take a chance on him. The Cold Diamond & Mink production puts this one over the top with their signature tough drums and lush instrumentation laying down the perfect paper for Bobby's poetry to be inked on. The B side is another one of the crushing ballads that made Bobby famous in the first place. An early favourite at Big Crown when they turned in the demos, Alone Again fits perfectly in both the warmest sunny day in California and the coldest darkest winter night in Helsinki. It is undeniable that Bobby and Cold Diamond & Mink are a match made in heaven and have come up with a sound that is entirely their own. Here's another two-sider showcasing two different variations on that sound.
