Album Notes

Aja West, producer of hybrid funk jazz and soul presents his long awaited masterwork, "Total Recall 2012". After leading super group The Mackrosoft through ten fantastically successful albums, Aja West takes a solo turn bringing along his most talented and prestigious friends.

Reggie Watts (Maktub/Soulive) co-writes and lends his incredible vocal styling to a slew of new funk pop jams. His sweet and strong voice has been compared to everyone from Chris Cornell to Marvin Gaye. The adventurous lyrics of "The Getaway" and "Out of Control" showcase Watt’s funky Sly Stone/D’Angelo type of vocal seduction at it’s absolute finest.

Composer Aja West keeps the production crisp and clean playing multiple instruments and easing in and out of the jams on vocoder and slinky effected vocals. Female sirens tempt the listener over the sparse groove of "How Many Lumps?" and "Penny in a Fountain" showcasing classic funky rhythm and blue.
