"A Lil' Louder (Clap Your Hands)"
The Rance Allen Group (2014)
Blazing horns, synths, and percussive hand claps--along with Rance's trademark growls, grunts, and falsetto--drive this feel-good groove. Dr. Leonard Scott, Tyscot Music & Entertainment founder, calls it the "modern-day 'Miracle Worker.'"
"A Lil' Louder (Clap Your Hands)," co-written by Rance and Floyd "Timeless" Thomas, is an invitation to praise that could've easily been a smash back-in-the-day collab with Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Ray Charles, The Tops, and The Miracles. That's the flavor of "R&B" this is, and take my word for it, you'll be doing more than clapping your hands on this one.
