Sofea EP: Streaming and Digital

17 Apr 2020
After the Vinyl-Release in January, we are happy to announce that our Sofea EP is now available for You on Streaming and Digital Platforms. Check the Links below and read the Review by Juno:
"Since debuting on Highsteppin' way back in 2009, German three-piece First Touch has delivered some of the finest revivalist Boogie, Electrofunk and Proto-House around. Here they return to Italian imprint Mother Tongue with another essential EP of synth-powered goodness. The A-side is all about "Do You Really Wanna Dance", a clap-happy synth-funk masterpiece that's also given a tougher, funkier and more bass-heavy tweak by DJ Spinna. Flipside opener "Skyhigh" is a breezy, piano-heavy Boogie-era Disco-Funk affair that reminded us of Randy Muller(Skyy) and New York, while "Upwind" is a deep Electrofunk shuffler blessed with effortlessly emotive piano solos."

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 as Limited Edition. Do not sleep on this one!
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."

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.
