If you’re lucky, you’re somewhat familiar with LA based nu-disco/indie dance producer Branded James. If you’re not, don’t worry. You will be soon enough…
These days, R&B vocals seem to permeate house music more than Cronuts flood Instagram feeds. James’ just-released “Close to This” is a breath of fresh air in the sub-genre. The track re-appropriates some velvety Chante Moore vocals over a deep bass line with a trance synth sprinkled on top which makes for a delightfully smooth and sexy track.
Head over to Branded James’ Soundcloud and you’ll feel his palpable love of everything 80s. This, coupled with the high production quality of his tracks, makes him quite an exciting addition to the nu-disco/house scene. Keep an eye out for this one, folks.
