Prod.and Composed by Funkstar De Luxe (known from his hit “Bob Marley – Sun is shining”) and Adrian Zagoritis

Remixed by Jamie Lewis, Luke Mornay (both Grammy nominated)

Vocal by Xan Blacq (ex Amy Winehouse) band member

Genre Soulful House / Melodic Funky House

Mr. Anderson was born after several successful collabs between Funkstar De Luxe and Adrian 'Zag' Zagoritis. Having worked together on several different projects that charted in six different countries, they'd often talked about doing something new, quirky, with sass and humour. And so in one session Funkstar programmed some punchy retro beats and Adrian started jamming his favourite flavoured seventh, ninth and sus chords. The bassline came quickly and the track blazed naturally into life...as Cinderella and Mr. Anderson.
Needing a Talkbox to complete the sonic palette, Adrian rang friend and colleague Xantone Blacq, keyboard star and BV provider for Amy Winehouse and Tom Jones among many others. Once his vocal was on Cinderella it was clear they had something special.....

The clock's about to strike midnight. But Cinderella's not fazed. This time she's in control - cruise control. And Mr. Anderson's along for the ride. Forged in a funk furnace but oozing contemporary chart class, 'Cinderella' is an original gem for our time. Borrowing from groovemasters like Cameo and Roy Ayers and featuring the TalkBox magic of Xan Blacq (Amy Winehouse) this debut single from new act Mr. Anderson is sure to set the dance floor buzzing, with powerful remixes from Funkstar De Luxe (Bob Marley's 'Sun Is Shining') and Xan Blacq himself. 'Cinderella' evokes Roger Troutman's 'California Love' and hints at Daft Punk in equal measure. The melodies and vibe are strong. Future-dance meets retro-funk as Mr. Anderson bursts from the grid.
