Sargent Tucker Drizabone - I Need Your Love - Out now on DSG

New Orleans Louisiana born Sargent Tucker (aka) Johnnie Tucker is a multi-talented, Singer, Musician, producer & songwriter, who has worked previously with Grammy Nominated produced Levi Seacer (Prince's former Music Director and guitarist ), Danny Thomas (Co-founder of “Con-Funk Shun), Juan Escovedo (of the famous Escovedo Family).

Sargent Tucker wrote the song, “I Am Happy'' which was selected as the theme song for the “I am Happy Project” with Tucker being the featured performer at last years Hollywood Global Happiness Day event. The Happiness Honorees included: Will Smith, Ellen Degeneres, Goldie Hawn, and Robbie Williams.

''I Need Your Love'' was written by Sargent Tucker & Martin Riley (aka) Bud E' Bluz. In it's original version, the song has started to build in the UK with modern Soul fans.
I heard the song and my first thought was wow!! if only Drizabone could remix this gem, then it could be one of the ''Soul tracks of the year'', The song is currently sitting at #1 at #1 on The Sweet Rhythms ChartBilly Freeman of Drizabone is currently working hard, completing his new Drizabone album which looks likely to be set for release next year. 

So to this the day, it's been two years since I asked Billy to remix SouLutions rough demo of Listen, which reached #1 in many UK Soul Charts, after he rewrote their backing track. It's been one year since, Ola Onabules Soul Town Soul #1, so i thought it must be time for the UK Modern Soul maestro to hit the mixing desk once again.

Drizabone reached the UK top 30 twice with, ''Real Love'' firstly in 1991 when it reached, #16 and then again with a remix in 1995 when it climbed to #24. Drizabone have had national remix hits with, Lisa Stansfield, Mary J Blidge & Shanice ''I Love Your Smile'' Drizabone remixed changed the songs fortune in 1992 to reach #2 UK & #1 in America where the song in it's original mix had staled.
