El Michels Affair - Enter The 37th Chamber
Led by saxophonist/organist Leon Michels and producer/engineer Jeff Silverman, El Michels Affair began as a loose collaboration of session musicians, including members of Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, the Budos Band, and Antibalas. Michels and Silverman’s burgeoning label Truth & Soul released two smash 7” singles featuring reinterpretations of "C.R.E.A.M." and "Bring Da Ruckus." The singles sold an extraordinary 7,000 units worldwide, and their success led to a contract with Fat Beats Records for Enter The 37th Chamber, an album of Wu-Tang Clan interpolations.
