Who remembers the Soul II Soul's lyric “A happy face, a thumping bass, for a loving race.”? Well, that could be applied right here as Ms JB Rose, who is on the comeback trail, after impressively featuring with Junglists/DnB merchants, Maximum Style.

She has that Funki Dred style, matched with a rich and mellow groove - on the whole, this is an upbeat and positive offering - refreshing too! All lovingly bolstered by some great wah-wah keys, over a strident bump of a sun-soaked tune.

Catch the video (filmed in Lockdown) below, which also happens to be given to B&S as an exclusive premiere and you’ll see her beguiling presence and expressive gestures to boot. You'll also notice Rose's distinct, sultry tone matched with sick, slick production. What's not to like? It’s sheer positivity and good vibes. Lockdown loveliness from one uplifting lady!

...and don't forget to checkout ‘JB Rose singing vegan mum’ on YouTube channel, focussing on health and nutrition with delicious/flavoursome recipes. Sounds tasty all round!
