Brother of Soul is the latest incarnation of Paul Hunter, half of the Deep Sensation team. "Celebration of Life" starts with a Chubby Checker-esque introdution of a new dance before it breaks into a frantic modern tribal groove. Like the Goodmen's "Give it up", the refrain of "Oh mama heh, oh mama ha" carries the track as the wild percussion builds. 70's electronic keyboards provide DJ's with a strong break from which they can either go up or down. "Pops, Digs the Be-Bop" is a functional "jive-talkin'" skit which can be used as an intro or interlude. The B-side displays how well-rounded of a producer Paul Hunter is with "Eyes of Love", a nu-disco vocal complete with backgrounds and harmonies. However, the real gem on this EP is the beautifully orchestrated "Ife Babowa". This brazilian influenced lounge breaks track begins with lush keyboards and horns. As these instruments fade into the sub-conscience, latin percussion builds up before the music is brought back to lull the listener into a chill state. The "Brother of Soul" EP displays such a rare range of emotion, that it is the definitive soundtrack of life.
