SHREM'S DOUBLE TROUBLE: "PINK LIGHT" - Jamie Lidell /// "STAND IN YOUR LINE" - Dornik
I have chosen two soulful gentlemen for you today.
Jamie Lidell's somewhat surprising come-back single is a synth-laden 80's flavoured slow jam spilling away from from speakers in a dreamy way. A truly sophisticated, sensual ode to some of the greatest R&B ballads or downtempo pop songs from circa 3 decades away. "Pink Light" is already sounding like one of Lidell's most accomplished singles to date, understated yet instantly captivating.
Beginning with a similar hook to the legandary "All Night Long" by the Mary Jane Girls, Dornik's latest single also travels back to the sweetest decade of boogie, R&B and all those irresistible rare grooves. Jessie Ware's former drummer is about to drop his debut album this Friday and "Stand In Your Line" serves as a perfect appetiser before this promising feast of neo soul and modern funk. After months of tempting us with a stream of highly impressive singles, the likes of "Something About You", "Rebound" or "On My Mind", Dornik seems to be finally completely ready to take over the urban waves. You can stream the album ahead of its official release HERE!
