New Directions in Funk

4 Mar 2020
Up next is a great 7" Vinyl-only Release on Soul Clap Records: New Directions in Funk Volume 6
It is a Collaboration with Boston-based Vocalist Saucy Lady and you will find the Tune "Check Me Out" as Vocal and Instrumental Versions. It comes along on Pink Color Vinyl in an Edition of 300.
Availabilities: North America/Fatbeats and Europe/RedEye
Fatbeats Review:
"Mannheim meets Boston with First Touch & Saucy Lady teaming up for New Direction In Funk's sixth outing on 7". Collaboratively, 'Check Me Out' proves to be a modern funk bomb led by the infectious vocals of Saucy, and bassline wizardry from First Touch."

Pretty much synced to the Release of our Sofea EP on Mother Tongue we got invited to play a Live Radio Show at Rocket Radio. The Community Radio Station broadcasts from Milan, Bologna and Verona, so we were able to play a DJ-Set on their Verona Station under the Theme "Mannheim Roller Coaster."
It is now available for you on SoundCloud, Mixcloud and even in High Quality to listen and download directly at Rocket Radio´s Website. Thanks for having us, big up to the entire Verona Gang!

Sofea EP including DJ Spinna Remix

10 Jan 2020
When we started to talk about a project with Mother Tongue head Patrick Gibin we had one common goal: expand First Touch´s original Modern Soul and Boogie Sound to a more club-savvy Electronica Field.
The outcome is a strong 4 Track EP named "Sofea" -  that even includes DJ Spinna`s Galactic Funk Remix of „Do you really wanna dance" featuring Reggie B on Keys.
The promising Release will be available on 12“ Vinyl, Digital and Streaming.
Release date: 31st of January 2020.
Available at your local Record Store and on Bandcamp.
