“No No No (I’m So Broke)” is the latest soul belter to come out of the vaults recorded by producer Dennis Rux and his outfit Angels of Libra.Lovingly captured on a TASCAM 388 8-track in a remote house outside Copenhagen, Denmark.

This perky,energetic track captures German songstress Maiiah, at work literally, as she sings about the daily grind many like her have to endure to make a buck.Lyrically hard hitting,like the lady herself……. ‘Every day I’m goin’ to my job now (and I’m slave, and I’m slaving) Tryin’ to give the best that I can (still I’m struggling, I’m struggling) I’m doin’ my best to make a living (it’s not work… it’s not working) Whatever I try, I stay broke, something’s wrong- get the picture ?
It’s a soul stomper with great horns and a blistering guitar solo and she’s put the work in here and come up with something rather special -this gal kicks ass and takes no prisoners -fantastic stuff!
