Tom Belton - Irresistible

Not a world-beater by any means, but acceptable enough as the poppier end of 'funky house' goes. What I find appealing about this kind of 'commercial' sound right now is that it's currently so UNcommercial that the peeps out there doing it must surely be doing it just cos they love it... well, either that or they're completely clueless. 

Either way, ten years ago this would probably have been a hit on some major label, now it's on a little indie out of Brighton. Bless. In the case of Irresistible, matters are somewhat helped by having a trio of mixes from Stonebridge, who has been doing pop-flavoured vocal house with considerably more panache than just about anyone else, since time.

About the label: it's on Born To Dance, which is based in Brighton (er, as I just said) and has been around for about six years now (so their website tells me). Oh, and it's out on May 25 and - bless 'em again - it's on vinyl, and everything. That's what we like to see.
