Premiering on UK radio late last week, Jessie Ware has dropped her most recent single, "Imagine It Was Us." The danceable track is a whirly fantasy of pop-friendly 80s inspired soul.
The song will be released alongside a remix with A$AP Rocky for “Wildest Moments” on the US version of Devotion on April 16.
The second remix of a BenZel track to come out this week, here is Xaphoon Jones and Grave Goods' reversion of the Japanese duo's collab with Jessie Ware, "If You Love Me." It's a big one, befitting the deeply votive original cover.
The future is looking extremely bright for Umi Takahashi and Yoko Watanabe of BenZel, and we cannot wait for more magic from these teenage wizards!
Perseus strips down the original version of "Night Light," by Jessie Ware, exposing the vocals and giving it a seductive sheen, a pulsating beat and a throwback vibe for all you 80's era nostalgists. It’s a combination of sweet, soulful R&B with that fresh wave of UK bass we have come to love so much. Perseus harnesses Ware‘s immense vocal range with this remix and creates a seamless and mesmerizing transition back in time to the golden age of 80's pop/R&B. Enjoy my damies!
Londoner Jessie Ware made quite a splash on our Staff Picks of 2012 lists with her debut album, Devotion. Today, the lovely lady releases her official US debut project, the If You're Never Gonna Move EP, which features the title track and a remix, two tracks from Devotion, as well as a cover of Bobby Caldwell’s “What You Won’t Do For Love.”
