Karl Grundmann A magnetic pull with an incredible drive makes you want to move your body. The voice and lyrics have the extra pinch of melodic romance and soul that make the great tracks spin in your head (and sound system) for hours. Favorite track: Sometimes It Hurts.

Lute FP Like Amy Winehouse without the drugs, with a slightly more traditional approach to the soul and funk. Excellent.

john greenwood Dojo cuts is definitely on of my favorite Aussie funk and soul bands. Roxie Ray is nothing short of incredible. I could listen to her sing for hours. Damn good music here. Get it on vinyl. Favorite track: What Do I Have To Do (bonus track).

Nemo Halperin Everything clicks with this collaboration. Several standouts apart including Sometimes It Hurts, Easy To Come Home, I Can Give, My Lovin Is All About You... Fills a space of it's own lyrically with perfectly matched instrumentation. Favorite track: Sometimes It Hurts.

Sydney soul/funk outfit DOJO CUTS return with a super soulful second album entitled “Take From Me”, once again featuring the sizzling, smoky vocals of Miss Roxie Ray. This much anticipated follow-up to their debut full-length sees the band taking it back to the roots of soul, but at the same time giving a nod to contemporary funk. With the liner notes written by Russ Dewbury (A Night At The Jazz Rooms) and the support of the entire Daptone Records family aka Gabriel Roth, Neal Sugarman and Homer Steinwess, this Aussie outfit prepares for what is without a doubt a significant step forward in the band’s musical journey.

This is the album where all of Dojo Cuts’ experience and hard work reaches its deeply soulful zenith, with mellow moments - such as in “I’d Rather Go Blind”, “I Can Give” and title track “Take From Me”, as well as gritty straight-up funk pieces like “Mamacita”, “Sonny’s Strut” or the Marva Whitney & James Brown classic “What Do I Have To Do”. Add to that some slices of feel-good crossover soul such as in “My Lovin' Is All About You” and first single “Easy To Come Home”, and the result is a guaranteed instant classic! The secret is out indeed, Dojo Cuts are ready to rock your world!
