The official release date is the 17th July 2017 and can be purchased from  Amazon, iTunes and all leading streaming services.

A brand new song and production performed by The Delgonives sounding similar to recordings released during the1960s US west coast surfin' and folk era. The song was co written by Carl Dixon and Rikki James at the BASCA song writing retreat 2014 in Wales at the Monnow Valley Studios where the likes of Oasis, Black Sabbath, Simple Minds and Robert Plant have recorded in the past. The official release date is the 17th July 2017. Normally The Delgonives perform more soulful songs with a Carolina Beach, Blue Eyed Soul and Detroit groove, but this time something a little different. Unlike other Bandtraxs releases this one does not have multiple mixes.

In the past Hull born Carl Dixon has co wrote and produced with celebrated Funk Brother guitarist, song writer and performer Dennis Coffey songs featuring Spyder Turner and Cherokee Pree in the ‘Motor City’ along with some other notable ‘Funk Brothers’ and session musicians back in 2008. 'Tell me (crying over you)' and 'Glory Fleeting' featuring Spyder Turner on lead vocals, 'Suddenly there's you' featuring Pree on lead and 'Detroit (city by the river)' by Bandtraxs were all released successfully from that session and still available to purchase or stream.

Later that same year Carl teamed up with Philly legend Bobby Eli where they co wrote, along with singer songwriter Chiquita Green, four new songs in his ‘Grooveyard’ studio. The two releases from that session were ‘There I go falling in love again’ by Chiquita and ‘Soul Recession’ by legendary Salsoul recording harmony group ‘Double Exposure’ famous for such releases as ’My love is free’, ‘Ten percent’ and ‘Every man’. In addition, Carl also has a co write with UK soul singer Diane Shaw and producer Andy Birkinshaw called ‘Good Lovin Man’ which is on her album ‘Love, Life and Strings’. Carl and The Delgonives are also proud to have co produced and sang on Robert and Mike Paladino's 'Soul Girl' parts 1 & 2 last year. This song is a derivative of 'The Four Winds' original 'Playgirl' released in 1963. Carl and Robert created this masterpiece remotely via Internet collaboration.

Stay tuned for other releases from The Delgonives like 'One piece of cake' and 'Tell me (crying over you'.
