AutoCharm come from the vibrant streets of Glasgow, Scotland in the UK. They are a three piece production team who write and produce their own music from their recording studio in Motherwell. Consisting of David Fotheringham, Phil O'Shea and Dougie McAuley, the team fuse together electronics with real instrumentation to make a blend of Jazzy, Disco Soulful House based music and have also been known to produce some Jazzy Lounge too! In my opinion there is fresher soul music across The Pond these days. Autocharm is a great example :))

"Freedom" is from Dr. Kwame Nkrumah's speech for Independence from the United Kingdom declared on 6th of March 1957. It is a tribute to Kwame Nkrumah the first President of Ghana and the first Prime Minister of Ghana. I am grateful that I discovered this song today on the actual anniversary of Ghana's freedom -- March 6, 1957
"I am an African, not because I was born in Africa, but because Africa is born in me." --
Mimmo Falcone moved from Naples, south Italy to the south of the world, Ghana, Africa. He has blended two heritages of the universal language of music. Mimmo Falcone is a dj and a producer, a creative spirit and a musician since his early teenage years. In 2003, he moved to the west side of Central Africa, in Ghana, as managing director of a food processing company. On the coasts of the Gulf of Guinea, he played and produced his deep house, mixing it with the heritage of the local and more traditional sounds and giving birth to a new project: MoBlack. In Twi, the major language spoken in Ghana, Mo means “good Job” as it stands for “moda,” the Italian word for fashion and as Mo, the initial of his last name. MoBlack wants to celebrate and promote the beauty of Africa through music, art and fashion. Since his arrival in Africa, Mimmo Falcone has played and shared his faith in sound with local artists.
