Tennerz: Benji Candelario feat. Lisa Shaw – You Got Me – (Benji Candelario Groove Rendition) (Defected)
Whenever searching for quality soulful House Music, then you can hardly go wrong with Benji Candelario. Remember for instance ‘The Young You Bring’ which he released back in 1995 as Swing 52, sharing the duties with Wayne Rollins. Or ‘You’ve Let Love Slip Away’ with Arnold Jarvis takin’ the centerstage 8 years later. Not to mention ‘Higher’ featuring the latter and Lina Lares which he dropped last year on Defected too…
Candelario gives another illustration of his undeniable elegance on ‘You Got Me’ which he recorded along with Lisa Shaw. A rumblin’ bass-driven joint which he filled with string arrangements that seem to be inherited from the Disco period. With Lisa Shaw enlightening our ears once again with her silky tones.
What we have here is another piece of classy music, most likely destined to stand the test of time.
