Picks of the Week
Groove Assasin featuring Pete Simpson "Like what U do (girl)" (Camio Records CD Promo)
With "Like what U do (girl)", Camio present an outstanding release that has timeless classic stamped all over it. Produced by Groove Assasin and featuring the incomparable Pete Simpson on vocals, this is a beautifull orchestrated, absolutely resistless and soulful gem that will be rocking the dancefloors for years to come. Dom Navarra contributes a laidback, percussion driven latin house interpretation, while M-Sol delivers a deeply rumblin' reworking that is spreading an uplifting feeling through the beautiful keys and chords. H&H provide a laidback reworking featuring a great jazzy sax and lovely guitar riff. Closing the package is a wonderful, live instrumentated mid-tempo reprise by label head Jonny Montana.
Exclusive Preview: Chaka Khan featuring Mary J. Blige "Disrespectful" (Matthias Heilbronn Mixes)(Burgundy/Sony Records CD Promo)
Chaka Khan returns with the Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis produced "Funk this" album this month, with "Disrespectful" being one of the first singles to be released. The song is a duet with Mary J. Blige, and its pure funk bliss with the two divas providing strong inspirational vocals. Matthias 'Matty' Heilbronn reworks the song in a wonderful way, with his 'SoulFlower Mix' being a smooth and soulful funky jam on a midtempo tip, while his 'PDP Mix' is an uptempo house take that nicely blends the funky vibes with wicked keys and a relentless groove. The 'Disrespected Dub' is a great addition to the 'PDP Mix' that puts the keys centerstage.
