Part of the Racka Chachi label collective, Good Deeds is a hip hop/ soul artist from Perth currently residing in London.
Inspired by Bill Withers and the classic Motown and soul sounds, Good Deeds layers introspective lyrics with modern hip hop production to create a funky, playful edge to his music.
Good Deeds latest release is 'Feels So Good', the third song of a trilogy he wrote about the massive move he undertook relocating to the UK.
Unlike the first two tracks that dealt with the angst and anger Good Deeds was feeling at the time, 'Feels So Good' is soaked in gratitude and positivity – its upbeat nature highly infectious.
"After starting off my solo path with a slow soul style," Good Deeds says, "I wanted to bring the mood up with this funky track.
"Like most of my tracks, they're a huge melting pot of styles and influences. This one was inspired by Bill Withers (RIP), Isaac Hayes, Tom Misch, Jamiroquai and Motown.
"Lyrically, it highlights the ups and downs of my first six months of being in London. After a dream start to my career followed by some travelling around Europe, I was just in a good mood to be honest."
scenestr is delighted to offer an exclusive stream of 'Feels So Good', which is the first official release under the Racka Chachi label. Enjoy.
A multi-instrumentalist who produces all of his own music, Good Deeds first began constructing 'Feels So Good' while escaping the heat of a Parisian summer's day.
"I started writing this song in Paris while at my cousin's house. It was 40 degrees and way too humid to go exploring, so I stayed indoors and played on my cousin's daughter's piano.
"I was heavily influenced by Bill Withers and Motown as I'd just finished a one-month stint as a supply/ relief teacher in London covering a Year 6 class in their final term.
"It was the best teaching gig ever – all I did was play/ rehearse bass guitar in a teacher band for the end of year school play."
