It’s been a great year for London-based singer HANNAH WHITE. She’s stepped out of the shadows as Kenny Thomas’ backing singer, profited from her time in a travelling Motown revue and started to forge her own solo success. Her ‘Sunny Day’ became one of this summer’s big modern soul tunes and in its “Caister mix” it’s one of the highlights of the new ‘Soul Togetherness’ album.
Hannah’s ‘Sunny Day’ follow up is the sweet, Philly-flavoured ‘That’s Love’ and many who’ve enjoyed it have remarked on its very special, sophisticated feeling. Well now, sophisticate-about-town, Joey Nelson has given it a remarkable new mix that cranks up the smooth supper club feel considerably. With full orchestral backing (the sweetest strings, this side of Philadelphia), the mix conjures up images of sparkling champagne, evening gowns, white tuxedos and spinning roulette wheels while staying true to the cut’s inherent modern soul feel.
HANNAH WHITE’S ‘That’s Love’ in its JOEY NELSON mix will be available via DSG from 21st October.
