TSTC Records releases Choice Cuts, by Cooly’s Hot Box – 25% OFF!

Enter code “TSLOVESYOU” at check out for 25% off, now until May 8th!

Tortured Soul’s TSTC Records presents “Choice Cuts,” a compilation of timeless classics from Cooly’s Hot Box!

Formed in New York City’s thriving acid jazz scene during the 1990s by Tortured Soul’s lead singer and drummer, John-Christian Urich, and renown soul singer Angela Johnson, Cooly’s Hot Box burst onto the scene with with “Don’t Throw My Love Around,” featured on the first Giant Steps compilation released by London’s Downtown Records. The song was later sampled for the main riff in Armand Van Helden’s “Funk Phenomena,” which rose to #1 on the Canadanian RPM Dance Chart and #38 on the UK Singles Chart in 1996. The band soon found themselves opening for the likes of B.B. King, A Tribe Called Quest, Zapp, The Neville Brothers, Guru, and India.Arie. After a series of singles and remixes, Cooly’s Hot Box released two full-length albums, “Take It,” and “Don’t Be Afraid: Get On,” to audience and critic rave reviews.

Cooly’s Hot Box formed the launch pad for the careers of Urich and Johnson, with Urich going on to form seminal live house act, Tortured Soul, and working with producers like Roger Sanchez and DJ Spinna and performing many hundreds of concerts worldwide. Johnson has since enjoyed international success as a solo artist and composer, releasing several albums and singles, and writing chart-topping hits for artists like Double (Japan).

If you’ve never heard Cooly’s Hot Box before, or if you’ve misplaced your original vinyl, TSTC Records has your back. Here are 14 Choice Cuts, culled from the albums and singles of Cooly’s catalog, re-released in their original sheen for your listening pleasure!
