The worlds of bop, hip-hop, rock, and funk have crossed and at that intersection is Liquid Soul. One of the joys of this album is its eclectic nature; it's hard to understand or prepare for what's coming next. Which means that while this album may not be for everyone it's worth a listen or two. Now while the music is clearly tailored to be a live entity, Here's the Deal captures the fires and passions often brewing on stage. Liquid Soul has collected and recorded loud funky party grooves with a totally positive energetic atmosphere. Clearly more comfortable with their craft and sound work, numerous samples are overlaid creating a rich but evocative sound. The rabid enthusiasm clearly projected by the jamming musicians is infectious. Alone or at a club your feet will move.
