A singularly talented man with an extraordinary voice and groove, an impassioned artist who has absorbed music influences of the most varied styles since a very young age: from Jazz, to Latin and Blues and beyond. For example, you can hear Marvin Gaye in the track “Why ft. Rachel Claudio, Erik Truffaz & Valérie Delgado,” J Dilla in his cover of Al Green’s “Simply Beautiful,” or Bobby McFerrin on the track “Good

It retains the unique color and texture of HIP-HOP with its sound that is so tough, grainy, dry, blunt, heavy, and percussive.

The Beatbox has become the most important component of all his compositions and arrangements. From Soul Music, Sly gets his sense of depth, sensitivity, emotion, forcefulness and eroticism, all of which have been so deliciously mixed together on this new album and spiced in a very hot and funky sauce!
