    Great "Drum Song" vibe going down..

    Leon Dinero returns with more rocksteady magic from producer Victor Axelrod. Originally written and recorded by James Hunter, "Heartbreak" gets the Axelrod treatment, turning this mid-tempo R&B gem on its head, reinventing the modern classic with a deep island groove that gets in your bones. The laid back vocal and tasteful organ give "Heartbreak" a wholly fresh vibe whilst staying respectfully true to the original. On the flip is "Cut Both Ways" an instrumental version courtesy of The Inversions. One listen and you'll find that these are some of the baddest musicians in the game.
