I’ve always loved Lisa Shaw’s voice since her Naked Music days, as I’m sure you have too. Consequently this Summerchill remix by Mannix of the more recent 2016 number pulls on the heartstrings, tearing worlds apart, creating a sense of urgency that contrasts perfectly with the music’s beautiful, breezy warmth. You could mention the letters R&B (plus that kind of tempo) but why restrict such a gorgeous piece of music (and song) by a label. The strings are of the calibre of Burt Bacharach, the keys are simply sublime, while the voice is soulfully exquisite in ways that you almost forget about when listening to so much of today’s voice-less electronic output. The only downside is that there are only four minutes of this ecstasy.
Release: July 16 on Traxsource promo. Full release July 30.
