Record Label: Makin Moves
Bolting out of the Makin Moves stable comes this tune penned by producer/songwriter Tiger Wilson. Having already notched-up experience hanging out and writing with R’n’B heavyweights, Donell Jones and Jaheim, it was just a matter of time before this maestro’s career blossomed. A chance meeting with Timmy Regisford set the wheels of fate in motion and Wilson’s breakout track ‘Sometimes’ on Tribe Records, firmly grounded him in house music with Regisford providing that compressed Shelter production as the perfect niche to cut his teeth on.
Home-grown in the church New Jersey native, Tiger Wilson slam-dunks the funk (and soul) with this track. With vocals reminiscent of Ralph Tresvant (Ralph who? Keep up young house tourists…), there’s a lot more going on than floaty falsetto’s when Wilson’s silky key change to b-flat deliver’s a meaty body to the bridge before your ears are teased with that addictive chorus. Wilson’s layers of effortless backing vocals of which I’ve not heard likes of since the days of Ron Isley, takes your listening pleasure to another level with his gospel roots clearly showcased. I would go as far as saying this is a Makin Moves signature tune…
Already many a DJ’s choice – Jazzie B giving it a ‘thumbs up’ the main mix provides an instant hit, which will be popular on the dancefloor. Catchy hooks and Registord giving that magic touch the only way he does on the Organ Solo mix – if this mix isn’t in Louis Vega’s flight case already I’ll eat my limited edition vinyl of this track which I’m seriously considering purchasing. The Slow vibe mix is a beautiful display of vocal talent and melt away layers again, though not my cup of tea – (What can I say? I’m a house-head). That aside – instantly likeable, instant hit, instant vintage. General release 29 October 2013 on Traxsource
