Ruben Mancias ft Michelle Weeks - My Change

One for the soulful house crew here, which is no surprise given the presence of the mighty Ms Weeks on tonsil duties. But think the rollicking, good times, diva-tastic side of soulful, à la Purple or Generate Music, rather than the noodly, 'ooh look at me, aren't I ever such a clever muso, with my Afro-Cuban jazz records and my adenoidal whining?' side of it. Which is a good thing in my books, as you may have guessed.

Mancias has in his time been a resident at both NYC's Club Shelter and San Francisco's equally legendary The End-Up, so clearly knows a thing or two about moving a dancefloor. Mix-wise, you can choose between Main, Dub and Instrumental mixes from Mancias himself, or slightly deeper rubs from both Groove Junkies and DJ Dealer, who supply a vocal and a dub mix apiece. To be honest there's not a huge amount to choose between any of ’em, but if pushed I'd plump for either the Main Mix or DJ Dealer's vocal rub (sorry Evan!)

Those who think anything with a female vocal = H** K**** cheese won't like it, admittedly. But luckily we know better, don't we? Oh yeah and there's some killer pianos, too…

Out: Today!

About: Devotion is the label run by Mancias himself and forming a subsidiary of the mighty Shelter empire. You can learn more about this spiritually-minded dude at his MySpace and also the MySpace for Devotion itself.
