Various - Afterhours Miami 2012
Dennis Ferrer kicks off proceedings with How Do I Let Go, a fairly straight-up vocal houser featuring the male R&B-ish stylings of the late KT Brooks, who sadly passed away in 2008 aged just 30. It'll go down well in the soulful clubs for sure, while Chocolate Avenue's Hot And Salted, despite featuring a pretty full-on diva vocal, could also work on deep house floors thanks to its big, squelchy electrofunk b-line. But the standout for me is UK producer Chris B's Riddle Me This, a somewhat techier affair that builds quite early, then shimmies and sways along quite nicely once it gets there in a 'dancing with your eyes shut' kinda way.
Out: This week on Traxsource, not sure about elsewhere.
About: This is on Street King, the more upfront/contemporary arm of the King Street empire.
