Soul Sugar’s Chase the Light is a journey through reggae, soul, funk and dub.


Soul Sugar - Chase The LightFrench outfit Soul Sugar has on their latest album Chase the Light (Excursions in Soul, Reggae, Funk & Dub) created an irresistible set devoted to vintage sounds with nods to greats such as Augustus Pablo and Jackie Mittoo.

Lead by keys man and composer Guillaume “Gee” Méténier it’s easy to guess that organ is a key part of the album. And it certainly is. His funky and soulful fingers are all over the album and he has even invited jazz man and organ wizard Dr. Lonnie Smith to add his flavor to album opener Take a Chance.

Chase the Light comes with previously cuts along with new material and dub versions. It’s largely instrumental, but features the vocal talents of soulful singers Courtney John and Leonardo Carmichael.

This is superb neo-soul, vintage reggae, blazing funk and psychedelic dub. All on one album and in perfect harmony and balance. It carries some mind-blowing grooves, ultra-swinging keys and experimental arrangements. A delightful album from a band I hadn’t heard about previously.
