    Choi Records Presents the Debut release from Mayfield!

    Side A - On The Ropes (Vox)
    Side B - On The Ropes (Inst.)

    Mayfield are a soul/funk/R&B/git down/hiphop- mish mash band formed around 3 years ago. Some long time friends and some new blood have now cemented the line-up in the shape that it is now, with the newest member being drummer/producer Ivan "Choi" Khatchoyan.

    With an album on the way in early 2017, "On The Ropes" leads first as a perfect track for a funk jam on wax!!

    The album is diverse stylistically but this track is a stand out funk banger!

    Side A -On The Ropes is an ol skool feel reminiscent of some of JBs. Carla sings about how she has been pushed to the limit, and now she’s fighting back. The track is both fast paced and relentless, has a smashing rhythm section, breaks, funky guitar, and ripper tenor sax solo in the middle..
    Side B - is an instrumental version, which is sure to fire up the dance floor and make your feet move....Bboys get a taste of ol skool with the instro B side of this dance floor destroyer!!

lyrics

ON The Ropes , here I go
And leave the past behind me
Soul
To and fro , from love to solitary
Whatcha you got, what I want
Besides my own compay
Own, way of life
And all I ever needed
Chorus :
Now that I got myself right ..
Got my self…
On the ropes, but I know
That I'm ridin' free as
Gold
In the hand
To fill the parking meter
Cissy Strut, you said what
I couldn't hear it well coz I
Told, you before
Got all I ever needed now that I got my self right

On the ropes
Combin Fro
I've got my mojo workin
O-ver and out
I've said my piece I'm walkin'
Out the back
Smoke it black
And toss the butt on the
Road
All this way
For all I ever needed
now that I got myself right
now that I got myself right
now that I got myself right
