Classically trained violinist Chieko Kinbara has been working with many of house music' biggest producers and artists in the past, now for her latest release she teams up with keyboardist and vocalist Josh Milan, one half of the legendary duo Blaze. "Higher love" remixed by Italy's Souldynamic uses smoothly bouncin' slightly afrocentric rhythms as playground for super delicious melodies, Josh Milan's inspiring vocals and Chieko Kinbara's grandiose violin solos. Tony Loreto contributes a gorgeous Latin infused rendition of "Give me your love" which combines Josh Milan's inimitable vocals and Chieko Kinbara's one-of-a-kind violin strokes with gentle tribal-esque rhythms and sublime keys. In other words, two paramount soulful gems both having timeless written all over. By no means to be missed...
