Review: Returning to Salted Records is honey voiced vocalist Lisa Shaw. Here she presents "I Can't See It", co-written and produced by Miguel Migs. The tunes is presented here in two very different incarnations. First up is the Miguel Miggs Vocal mix, which begins as deliciously deep and sultry late night disco house before sweeping into arpeggiated synthiness. The "Deluxe Dub" version meanwhile, gets grittier with some seriously dirty jackin' funk vibes added to the mix.
Review: Soul and house singer Lisa Shaw drops "Can You See Him" and a whole host of ace mixes to go with it. The original is a perfect example of what funky and soulful house has been missing of late - something with a hint of melancholy that's also supremely danceable. Shaw's vocal drips with emotion and longing, which is framed perfectly by Californian Joshua Heath on his appropriately titled Moody mix. Sparsely arranged with little more than a funky drum track and bass, it's a real standout.
The Sonny Fodera mix fills out the track and makes it a more uplifting and jacking peak-time tune. Popping bass and slick guitars are a tried and tested combination for house music success and this is no exception - it works very well indeed here. Colombian Dj Andrew Chibale brings the horns home for his mix, reworking it with lots of acid jazz colour and an insistent cymbal track to create probably the most soulful mix of the four. Not only is the original a strong track in it's own right, these mixes really offer a range of different perspectives rarely seen on one release. Great stuff all round - fans of quality funky house will get a big kick out of these gems.
