Jay West – We Can Change It
Actually, while this certainly does represent the techier end of the deep house spectrum musically, its mostly-spoken vocal (black, male, American) gives it a soulful feel too so it kinda covers all bases! Said vocal reminds me a little of the spoken intro to Jon Cutler's It's Yours, and sits atop a backing that manages to be sparse and electronic yet warm and luxurious at the same time. Over on the B, I Feel Hype operates in similar territory but is a tad more organic-sounding, with a breathless, half-spoken/half-sung female vocal telling you that "when you touch me, I feel hype" and getting all poetic on yo' ass.
Classy stuff, basically – go seek.
Out: This week
About: The Neurotraxx stable (Neurotraxx, Neurotraxx Deluxe and Neurotraxx Gold) seem to be one of the hippest labels around right now… and compared to a lot of 'hip' labels, in this case I CAN see what the fuss is all about! Find 'em at their website or on Facebook.
Jay West, meanwhile, is a name that should be familiar to you given that he's had releases on Salted, Conya, Drop, So Sound, Adaptation Music, Funkfield, Lost My Dog and more…
