Distant People feat Nicole Mitchell – Gimme Heat

Seems like years since I reviewed anything from Distant People, but now they're back, back, BACK! in TIWWD's life with a big vocal houser that'll delight lovers of more traditional house sounds. Think of 90s/early 00s screamers like Kathy Brown's Turn Me Out, Liberty City's If You Really Love Someone or Goodfellas' Soul Heaven, and you're somewhere in the ballpark.

The five mixes include a funkified pass from JD73, a more sultry rub from Steven Stone, a techier mix from Sole Essential and, best of all to these ears, a stripped-down throbber in the form of Echofusion's Detroit Deep House Mix. But given the strength of Ms Mitchell's vocal, you can't really go wrong with this one, whichever mix you opt for.

Class in a glass, basically.

Out: This week

**UPDATE: Hang on… since writing this review earlier on today, I notice I've got ANOTHER promo of this, same tracks but that one says it's not out till 28 Feb on Traxsource and 13 March everywhere else. So you might have to wait till then...

About: This comes on Craig Stewart and Martina Lancaster's Universe Media imprint.
