First Listen: Kelvin Sylvester & Al Copeland – Come Over (DeepSole Syndicate Mix) (Vibe Boutique Records)
There’s definitely a je-ne-sais-quoi of Jill Scott in Al Copeland. And in the meantime of the classic ‘He Loves Me’ on ‘Come Over’.
“Your sweetness is my weakness”, used to sing Barry White. And this is obviously what one can expect when givin’ a listen to the lady singin’.
What a sultriness she displays as a matter of fact. And in the meantime, what a help she received on the DeepSole Syndicate Mix of her song. With Sean Ali and Munk Julious crafting up the ideal soothing environment for her.
Here we most likely have a deep and soulful 5 star piece of art. And therefore a gem to count among the highlights of the year. Let’s see what will be your feeling about this. As usual, we look forward to be hearing from you. With your feedback more than welcome, as usual. Ride On!
