The NM Band
The long-awaited official reissue of ‘She Wants’, one of the first UK Street Soul singles originally released in 1985 by The NM Band, an alias for Lovers Rock band Natural Mystic. They released a string of acclaimed reggae LPs and toured extensively throughout the UK, but by 1985, they wanted to try something away from their trademark roots reggae sound. Influenced by the availability of affordable hardware the band set about fusing Reggae and Soul using an Akai Drum machine, Yamaha DX7 and Roland sound module. ‘She Wants’ is one of the forebearers of UK Street Soul, raw machine drums paired with an incredibly soulful vocal from Ashley Sommers.
