Here are this week’s musical highlights in the second Weekly Finesse (week ending Saturday 22nd October 2011).
To commemorate 25 years of Expansion Records, Joey Negro has put his trademark style over this beautifully crafted soul number featuring Shirley Jones – one of Diana Ross’ original backing singers – and Jean Carne – another music legend who recorded the disco classic “Was That All It Was”. Talk about a dream team!
Love this “nu disco” track doing the rounds at the moment. It’s got a great uplifting vibe about it with a true French disco sound. Definitely one to listen out for.
First single taken from the forthcoming debut album ‘Hello You’. Double A-Side single ‘Gimme Gimme/The Wall’ released October 3rd (advanced Beatport release 19th September)
This is becoming a firm favourite of mine for 2011. The original mix is a fantastic dark and deep track but, obviously, I’m a sucker for a bit of soulful house so the Soulmagic remix is getting more airtime from me. Great track!
