A nice number here. Very much dashed off, probably in the middle of the night, a forlorn love song with an uptempo disco-ish beat. Reggii very much enjoying himself. I'm rifling through the Oxford Book of Song Cliches and throwing in a reference to Stax Records' finest group Booker T. & the MGs which I must admit I do quite like the surprise and sound of. It's not often someone that specific gets namechecked in a pop song. Always good to perform live and catchy little bit of pop music, sheer pop music, not sure there's much of my stuff you could say that about.
Selected by 22 Records & ClubStar Records in Germany to feature on their compilation album 'Sunday in Bed Volume 5 - Sexy Sounds For Lazy Lovers' ... sexy sounds indeed. The compilation also featuring the likes of Eryka Baduh, Serge Gainsbourg, Frank Ocean and Toddla T reached #2 in the German dance & electronic chart, outselling David Guetta and pipping him to the second spot in that week's chart. A nice bit of love from Europe there.
It was just unfortunate that Jimmy missed the release and I was off in my own quarter life crisis when this was happening. It would have been nice to jump on a ferry with my "partner in crime" and entertain some northern Europeans, especially considering our growing fanbase in Germany and Poland. We love you all, all over the world. One day you will be funked up by us.
