Payback / Creepin

A 2 track funk single (7m 12s) — released April 26th 2010 on Tru Thoughts
Beta Hector is the solo project of Simon Hill, founding member of adored British funk band, Baby Charles, who have attracted acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork, MOJO Magazine, Craig Charles (BBC 6Music), Gilles Peterson (BBC Radio 1), DJ Format and Andy Smith, to name a few. These two tracks see Hill hooking up once again with his Baby Charles partner in crime, Dionne Charles, an enthralling and powerful frontwoman; having been compared to Sharon Jones of The Dap Kings, Dionne is known for her unique and boisterous vocals that smoothly ride over a funky, hard hitting drum groove. Both tracks on this 7" have been signed to Tru Thoughts especially for the 'Tru Thoughts Funk' compilation, out in May, adding to a classic super-heavyweight collection of all the best funk tracks to have graced Tru Thoughts over the years from an eclectic international roster of talent. The compilation has already garnered multiple daytime radio plays from Nemone on BBC 6 Music. On hearing the "Payback" 7", Ashley Beedle immediately phoned up to request Dionne Charles to record vocals on his upcoming material. • "Like it, definitely rough & tough!" – Alex Chase (Stones Throw) • "Stunning! Both sides of the 7" are killer. Big big support!" – Ashley Beedle (Mavis/X-Press 2/Ministry of Sound Radio) • "4 STARS" - MOJO • "Dionne Charles' full throated soul howl is what puts everything over the top." - Pitchfork • "When it comes to lungs she's got two pairs." - Blues & Soul
