CMAN EDIT >>> DENA DEADLY – 1608 (FREE DOWNLOAD) [SOUL. NU SOUL. RNB. FUNK]

Got the heads up on this track by my good mate Edseven awhile back, and had this one sitting in my abelton folder but never got round to posting it up. Based in LA Dena has done a bunch of projects, but this track to me has all the makings of a funky nu soul track that should translate well playing out. Hope you enjoy it. Slightly re-worked DJ Friendly intro’s and outros and tweaks in certain areas. PS – DJs don’t make your toilet run on this track, it’s short but sweeeet baby! Enjoy!
