Africa Got Soul ft. Abavuki “Papa Was a Rolling Stone” (002)





Deep London Traxsource


Classic soul with an african beat
From the soul of DJ Stan-ley, the co-founder of Deep London, comes a deep funky house rendition by of the temptations classic, ‘Papa Was a Rolling Stone’. This sun-ripened remix takes a slice of classic soul from South Africa, originally featured on the album ‘Africa Got Soul’ by Abavuki, and adds a touch of sub-tropical bass, making an audio cocktail perfect for this summer’s massive club sound systems.

Papa Was Rolling Stone (DJ Stan-ley Ingroove Vocal Mix) first appeared as a promo on Deep London 2009 Miami WMC sampler, which reached number 10 on Traxsource’s chart.

“Building of deep (afrodeep mix) – i really see this choon making a big impact in miami. it has the formula for a dance floor banger. The beat is straight to the point with the over laying of the neo soulish vocals compliment one another well. I can’t wait to rock this one on a system!!
