Mmelashon – Chlidren Of The Ghetto (Maurice Joshua Digital)
Maurice Joshua’s self named imprint is gathering pace nicely and once again fails to disappoint with this cover version of Phil Bailey’s eighties soul classic. A debut release from Mmelashon and her sweet soulful vocals are very sympathetic to the original with Azza K Fingers reconstructing the music perfectly, lovely percussion and soft pads complement the delightful piano lines, subtle bassline and swirling strings, bringing this masterpiece bang up to 21st century soulful standards. Azza delivers an epic reprise with his To The Sky mix, there’s a Club mix, instrumental and radio edit too, whilst the Blak Beatniks throw their hand in with an excellent dub. Out now from all good download stores.
