Have you ever experienced a deep, romantic connection with someone you’ve met for the very first time? Mario Evon sure has; in “Soul Tek”, the reggae-soul singer/songwriter describes his serendipitous encounter with a beautiful girl. According to Mario, soul tek is “the state of being experienced, when the spiritual or immortal part of a human is captivated by the essence of another human upon first exposure. It is often categorized by increased heart rate and an overwhelming desire to access and remain in the company of the other human in order to sustain the connection.”
“Soul Tek”, Mario’s first single off his debut album Reggae-Soul M.E. on Love Volume 1, was recorded at Bob Marley’s legendary Tuff Gong Studios in Jamaica with a live band. Evon’s smooth vocals and mollifying melodies create a catchy hook on the chorus:
“Mi soul tek, mi soul tek yu baby
Soul tek to yu nah lie
Mi soul tek, mi soul tek to yu baby
Soul tek to yu cyaan hide”
