The Raconteur feat Jasmine Taylor – My Only

June 26, 2015 in Singles

The Raconteur ft Jasmine Taylor My Only Xylo MusicEnding tonight on about as commercial a note as TIWWD gets, with a bass-heavy vocal houser aimed fair and square at the bigger dancefloors.

In its Original form, My Only is a hi-octane future houser that’s surely destined to grace 101 completely misnomered Deep House Ibiza Euphoria-type comps before the year’s out. Dene Antony’s mix is a slightly housier variation on the theme, Jay Robinson goes full-on bassline house with a warping b-line’d monster of a refix, while Tempo Elektrik’s gnarlier rub would be more readily filed under ‘bass music’. But these are pretty minor distinctions: house beats + pianos + sweet fem vox + huge bassline is the formula throughout.

There’s a reason this is getting reviewed where much similar tackle gets passed by, though, and that’s the quality of Ms Taylor’s voice, which has a ‘delicate yet powerful’ quality that’s redolent of Lisa Shaw. And from me, that’s praise indeed.
