Video Premiere: Soulful sweet reggae from Soul Sugar and Shniece McMenamin

Guillaume Metenier returns with his Soul Sugar project, a fusion of dub, reggae, funk and neo-soul often based around collaboration.

With a new album, Just A Little Talk, out now on his own Paris-based label Gee Recordings, the track Top Of My List sees a single release and a special Japan-exclusive 7 inch record courtesy of HHV.de.

Edited down from the extended album version, “Top of My List” is the first collaboration between Metenier and rising star Shniece McMenamin, a London-based soul singer best known for her work with dub maestro Prince Fatty. On “Top of My List” she delivers an impeccably emotive lead vocal, perfectly delivering her own thoughtful and insightful lyrics.

Combined with a languid, sun-kissed reggae backing track rich in Metenier’s superb instrumentation and fluid guitar licks courtesy of Samuel IsoardShniece’s vocals help make “Top of My List” one of Soul Sugar’s most enchanting singles to date.

If you purchase the single from Bandcamp, you also get the killer dub mix, channelling the classic Jamaican style.

Enjoy the video premiere, exclusively here on Bonafide. Grab the single on Bandcamp and listen on streaming platforms.
