LaNote - RebirthFuturistica
Avid fans of the Futuristica label may be familiar with the blissful vocals of LaNote from the Parisian soul electronica group Electric Conversation. Along with beatmaker As Valet the duo made up one half of the eclectic genre bending group. With her debut "Rebirth" LaNote takes center stage and the results are simply marvelous. Valet's compositions are drenched in down-tempo melodic rhythms. If that wasn't enough, several tracks also receive the remix treatment from an All-star line-up of producers such Marc Rapson, Mecca 83, DJ Spinna and more. Simon S adds his soulful jazz infused hip-hop touch to "Miracle". The title track is blissed out down-tempo soul remixed by Nicky Lars. It's filled with warm vocal harmonies layered with LaNote's vocals. "Truth Be Told" is warm and hazy soulful electronica at it's best. You'll find it hard not to get swept away by LaNote's low pitch airy vocals. In addition Valet's soulful compositions make this a brilliant release that you shouldn't miss. Just press play and let the music take you away.
