Tomás Doncker and the True Groove All-Stars Release ‘Let Me Be Dirty,’ First Video From Upcoming EP Driving Through Limbo, Vol. 1

A little more than a year since Tomas Doncker’s epic rebuttal of the patriarchy, Endangered, he drops the first single off his upcoming album Driving Through Limbo, “Let Me Be Dirty”…

From the press release:

“Let Me Be Dirty,” the first video from Tomás Doncker’s upcoming album, Driving Through Limbo Vol.1, distills vintage rhythm & blues through a modern lens. Recorded live in one searing take, Doncker and the True Groove All-Stars tap into a groove and style that slide in seamlessly as a new entry in the lineage created by singer-guitarist-songwriters like Curtis Mayfield, Johnny Guitar Watson, Chuck Brown and Bobby Womack. The song is dripping with a ‘turn-the-lights-down-and-the-body-heat-up’ feeling you’d find on the soundtrack to Trouble Man or Slaughter’s Big Ripoff. Doncker’s vocals are just the right balance of smooth and stanky, while a steamy beat and cinematic arrangement rumple the bedsheets all night long; the lyrics might be PG, but the vibe is most definitely rated

It is, indeed, a change of pace for Doncker, it follows a run of albums that track the pandemic to your doorstep on Wherever You Go in 2020 and the #BLM second response, a re-working of his sadly prescient The Mess We Made with Trapped… In The Mess We Made. The level of work here, come to think of it since 2012, is huge and if “Let Me Be Dirty” isn’t the one knee being taken we are used to, it is Tomas going deep and growly baritone with all rasp and want as he exacts a revenge of sorts on a woman who left him and then changed her mind.

The video, directed, photographed and edited by William Murray, is a live in the studio True Groove Allstars thriller, a passion overflow in brown sepia and the single has a live and a studio version. The pent up desire, the songs sexy horniness is the sort of song a DJ in a nightclub would spin if he wanted the couples to start making out on the dancefloor, Doncker has given us all a song we can get dirty to.
