Review: Yam Who? recently teamed up with vocalist Brian Lucas on a cover of James Ingram classic 'Yah Mo Be Be There'; now he provides three mixes of the singer's latest outing, which finds him collaborating with fellow Midnight Riot regular Sean Scanlan. It'll surprise no one to learn that uplifting soulful house is the order of the day here - for stylistic pointers, see Blaze, 'The Way You Love Me', Opolopo, and most of Yam Who?'s own back catalogue - with 'Glow Of Love' served up in fairly self-explanatory Yam Who? Extended, Yam Who? Instrumental and Yam Who? Vocal Dub flavas.
Review: Midnight Riot bring us a fourth collection of gospel-inspired house, disco and boogie. Mark Brickman & Yam Who's superb Vanessa Jackson-sung, disco-styled Praise Cats cover gets the ball rolling, the unmistakable tonsils of Kenny Bobian lend an authentically evangelistic feel to 'I Shall Not Be Moved', Yam Who? reappears in tandem with Brian Lucas on a cover of James Ingram's 80s soul classic 'Yah Mo' B There', prolific re-editor Jet Boot Jack gets busy on 'The Gospel According To Jack', and so it goes on... the devotional lyrics may be a bit much for some, admittedly, but if that's not an issue there's much to enjoy here.
Review: Midnight Riot take something of a left turn into trad-style soulful house territory with this release from Hungarian producer Rony Breaker, which features the golden tonsils of San Francisco's Brian Lucas. In its Original form, 'Change' sits in the tradition of cuts like Shaun Escoffery's 'Days Like This' or Erro's 'Change For Me', which means anthem status at the likes of Soul Heaven or the Vocal Booth Weekender is pretty much guaranteed. Qwestlife then beefs up the bottom end for the slightly more commercial/discofied floors, but it's the sheer quality of Lucas's vocal that carries it either way.
