S-Endz, AKA Casey Rain The Neosoulja. Songwriter, vocalist, producer, rapper, leader of NEOFUNK. Vegan. Member of electropop bandSwami, co-wrote and performed on songs like 'DesiRock', 'Electro Jugni', 'Sugarless' & all songs from our upcoming album, "Upgrade". Sometimes I make documentaries.
I released my new solo EP "Chapter 0: REINKARNAL" recently and you should click here and listen to it. If you don't, you may die, of unrelated causes.
This is the fourth song from my new EP “Chapter 0 : REINKARNAL” - my cover/remake/re-interpretation of the classic 1994 R. Kelly hit “Your Body’s Callin”. I haven’t assigned it a chapter number because it won’t appear on the future total-package EP that will be on iTunes, Spotify, etc due to sample clearance issues. So enjoy, right here and right now is your only chance to get hold of this. Download it below, for free, but as always, feel free to pay any amount you choose to, if you want to.
Your Body’s Callin’ written, produced, performed and mixed by s-endz at neofunk studios based on “your body’s callin’” by r. kelly mastered by simon “subs” duggal
About six months ago, I realized that aside from a live jam of Prince’s “Controversy” during a Maida Vale session with my band Swami, I’ve never performed or released a cover. I set out to remedy this, chose this classic r&b joint from 1994, put my own twist on it…..and voila!
This is the third song, "She Got It (I Want It)" from my new EP, "Chapter 0 : REINKARNAL". Download below, and once again, although you can download it for free, if you can afford to pay something for the song, please do (any amount you choose).

"She Got It (I Want It)" was written back in February 2009 in my homestudio. I was crushing on a certain female singer and she indirectly inspired this song. The drum was inspired by a Prince track, and the song itself is a fairly straightfoward ode to lust.

Jimmy Jam&Terry Lewis are 2 of my favorite producers for the simple fact that their musical ability is unparalleled and they’re extremely consistent yet innovative at the same time. If I were asked what producer(s) inspired me the most or who I emulate I would have to say Jimmy&Terry as far as my synths,leads and chord progressions. Jimmy&Terry can take a simple chord progression or synth riff and turn it into a monster hit. I honestly feel they don’t get the credit they deserve. i would almost credit them for starting the New Jack Swing sound cause you first heard those Swing Beat hip hop-esque records on Janet Jackson’s Control album along with the Boomerang Soundtrack. NO SHADE at Teddy Riley because he IS the one who made the New Jack Swing sound popular in the late 80s early 90s. but i’ve always felt Jimmy&Terry were ahead of their time sound and production wise -KB
Prince performs Electric Chair from his Batman soundtrack live on SNL in 1989. Killer performance.
Little known fact about this performance - that is legendary jazz-pop keyboardist and singer Patrice Rushen sitting in with Prince’s band for this performance… you can just about see her on the left side at the back ;)
