    Carl Cox & Eric Powell are excited to announce: Melanie Williams, Joe Roberts and Eric Gooden will be joining Carl and Eric on stage (all shows except ‘Return to Rio’), to perform their classic tracks including: Melanie Williams (with Sub Sub) – ‘Ain’t No Love, Ain’t No Use’ - https://youtu.be/pRguEi3wufQ and Joe Roberts - ‘Back In My Life’ - https://youtu.be/Zl3BKtsrTcM.

    Back In the Manchester ‘summer of love,’ when the Hacienda was at its peak, the Happy Mondays were causing mayhem in the studio, in the charts and on stage. Eric Gooden and Eric Powell put a band together called ‘Sweet Mercy.’ Working with Dave Morales, Roger Sanchez, Satoshi Tomiie, Melanie Williams, Joe Roberts, Graham Park to name a few.  ‘Sweet Mercy’ went on to have several house music hits such as: 

    ‘Take Me Away’ (still in Sasha’s Top Ten ever records).  Melanie Williams sang the original guide vocal, her eighteen year old niece ‘Natasha’ did the lead vocals, when visiting Eric Gooden earlier this year, Eric and Eric found the original guide vocal (which they will release at the end of this year) of ‘Take Me Away’ with the newly found vocal: https://youtu.be/sQFo5K-E7-o. 
     
    ‘Happy Days’ feat Joe Roberts – a gospel tinged classic house track with an incredible Dave Morales Mix: https://youtu.be/2savw7qCAtw.
     
    ‘Reach Out’ – this was the first track they wrote and released together on the fledgling ‘Blip Records.’ If you don’t know the original you will recognise the vocal which has been sampled by Todd Terry, Black Eyed Peas, bootlegged by Laidback Luke to name a few.  It was remixed in 2008 and hit Number One on most Dance Charts.  Still a floor filler today, that vocal has been used across most dance music genres including DnB, EDM, Breaks: https://youtu.be/GdjdR8F6pQI.

    Incognito Bio:
    An acid jazz project with deep roots in the 1970s jazz/funk/soul world, Incognito was originally formed by Jean-Paul ‘Bluey’ Maunick and Paul ‘Tubbs’ Williams in 1979. Both were the original members of the late -'70s disco-funk group ‘Light of the World.’ Whist Tubbs had been a contributing member of another L.O.T.W. off shot ‘Beggar & Co,’ Bluey had formed ‘Freeez’ with Jonny Rocca and Peter Maas, but throughout the time that they worked on other projects they would meet at Bluey's house in North London to play music in a makeshift bedroom studio, for they both had a musical affinity and an undying love for funky jazz. 

    They decided to take a couple of their home made jams into the studio, and so it is that Incognito debuted with the single ‘Parisienne Girl’ (which also featured another L.O.T.W member Peter Hinds) and released the 1981 LP ‘Jazz Funk.’ The planned second album ‘Behind The Mask’ in 1983 went into a jazz rock fusion direction and came out under another name (‘The Warriors’).  Throughout the 80's Bluey continued to write material for his group, even while working with Maxi Priest, Total Contrast, Steven Dante and others.  Tubbs went on to work with George Michael and Rosie Gaines and later moved to the Netherlands.  By the beginning of the 1990s, DJ legend and early Incognito fan Gilles Peterson had founded the Talkin' Loud label and he made Incognito one of his first signings.  The 1991 single ‘Always There’ (with vocals by Jocelyn Brown) became a Top Ten hit as part of Britain's booming acid jazz scene, prompting the release of Incognito's official second album ‘Inside Life.’ It was largely a studio affair, with Bluey and engineer Simon Cotsworth directing a large cast with many of the best musicians in Britain's fertile groove community. 

    In 1992 they released ‘Tribes, Vibes and Scribes.’ Bluey added American vocalist Maysa Leak and a cover of Stevie Wonder's ‘Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing,’ became another hit for the band.  The album ascended Britain's pop charts and went on to feature in the America's contemporary jazz charts.  The third album, ‘Positivity’ in 1993 became the group's biggest album success, with much attention across Europe as well as Britain.  That album also spawned ‘Deep Waters’ which would become their biggest radio hit in the USA to date! 

    The band toured relentlessly and Pamela Anderson and Joy Malcolm were brought in as featured vocalists on their 1995 world-wide hit album ‘100° And Rising.’ Leak returned though... appearing on the following year's luscious and warm sounding ‘Beneath the Surface.’ 

    Incognito later expanded their discography with 1996's ‘Remixed’ which featured the dons of the dance scene ‘Masters At Work,’ David Morales, Roger Sanchez and Pete Rock, 1998's ‘Tokyo Live’ and 1999's ‘No Time Like the Future’ which featured the hit ‘Nights Over Egypt.’ The group's next two albums were again made without Leak, 2001's ‘Life Stranger Than Fiction’ and 2003's Dome / Edel debut ‘Who Needs Love,’ which featured Brazilian vocalist Ed Motta, Joy Rose & Kelly Sae. 

    More releases on Dome records followed with ‘Adventures in Black Sunshine.’ In 2004 featuring the late George Duke on the cut ‘Minding My Business.’ The Aptly named eleventh album ‘Eleven’ featuring Imaani and Tony Momrelle followed in 2005. ‘Bees + Flowers + Things’ appeared at the end of 2006.  The album was a mix of cover versions along with stripped down re-recordings of four Incognito classics. 

    In 2008 Bluey and company released ‘Tales from the Beach’ and ‘More Tales Remixed.’ 

    In 2010 they issued two albums: ‘Live in London: The 30th Anniversary Concert’ and the studio set ‘Transatlantic R.P.M.,’ featuring guest appearances by: Chaka Khan, Mario Biondi, Leon Ware, Al McKay, Christian Urich from Tortured Soul, Ursula Rucker, and Maysa among others.  A cover of the classic Boz Scaggs ‘Lowdown’ saw the band’s international status grow more and more popular. ‘Surreal’ in 2012 featured Vanessa Haynes and two newcomers Natalie Williams and Mo Brandis with the addition of new younger musicians in the rhythm section, and once again the band took on a fresh direction on an old musical theme and provided their fans with unforgettable live shows. 

    The band celebrated it's 37th birthday in 2016 and the release of their 16th studio album.
