Like your club anthems with male vocals? X-Press 2's first album in four years 'Makeshift Feelgood' taps the vocals of frontmen from The Music, Lambchop and Radio4.
X-Press 2 are Rocky, Diesel and Ashley Beedle. The Skint Records trio hit the pop charts in 2002 with the single 'Lazy' which featured the songwriting and vocal talents of Talking Head's David Byrne. 'Lazy' was taken from the album 'Muzikizum' which also included tracks with Yello's Dieter Meier ('I Want You Back') plus prog house anthems 'Muzikum' and 'Smoke Machine'.
On 'Makeshift Feelgood' X-Press 2 continue the vibe set by 'Lazy' and deliver an album of feelgood house with male vocals aplenty. It includes the singles 'Give It' with Lambchop's Kurt Wagner and 'Kill 100' with The Music's Rob Harvey as well as collaborations with Tim DeLaughter, Anthony Roman from New York dance-rock outfit Radio4 and eighties synth-poppers Kissing The Pink.
