GREGORY PORTER - SINGLE REVIEW

Gregory Porter - Liquid Spirit [Claptone Remix] 
Gregory Porter - Liquid Spirit (Claptone Remix)

Release Date: Out Now

The new Duke of Jazz, Gregory Porter, is hitting the UK with a big ol' tour next year but to keep our whistles whet there's a little Claptone remix of the fantastic 'Liquid Spirit' floating around for us. For those that don't know this modern classic already, the piano melody and Porter's soulful voice evoke everything that is good and great about Jazz, Soul, Motown and Funk without the need for any help. What this Claptone remix does is give the beat and rhythm a little joie de vivre and suddenly you've got a dance floor filler with deep soul that should please purists and newcomers alike. Somewhere in the realms of Moby's 'Play' material, Fatboy Slim and Parov Stellar with some Jacknife Lee thrown in for good measure is where this track exists in all its glory. Love the style, love the voice, love the soul (and the Soul) and God bless that hat.
