Mr President aka Patchworks is definitely a name to remember if you're interested in today's vintage soul and funk scene. Following the trail of success left by his projects Uptown Funk Empire, The Dynamics or Metropolitan Jazz Affair, Patchworks proved his musical ubiquity album after album and unexpectedly stroke in various genres.

It's easy to feel Stax and Motown influences ("Mr President Theme", "Love and Happiness" or "Celebrate"), as well as more cinematic directions which could recall David Axelrod's works ("Trouble"). Even though Mr President never gets straight to Africa, tracks like "From North to South"digs the dirtiness of raw African funk horn sections with a very personal flavor! Finally, listening to "Meet Again" or "Get it Sometime" takes you on a trip to Spanish Harlem, with a heavy Latin funk touch.
