Manchester new-comer Daley tries his hand at a soulful revamp of Blueboy’s 90s dancefloor filler Remember Me and firmly plants his feet a little higher on the music industries ladder of greatness.
The retro opening to Daley’s debut single Remember Me is a nod to the songs Motown roots, so when we are graced with the singers honey-smooth voice it blends beautifully, and respectfully, with the music. He cleverly enlists Beautiful British Songstress Jessie J to handle the Marlena Shaw chorus and even finds time to add in a copy of the original scat opening to Shaw’s ‘Woman of the Ghetto’, the song Alex Blackmore (BlueBoy) sampled 15 years ago.
Daley delivers the song confidently and with style, his voice smooth and flawless with a tone that compliments the power of Jessie J’s vocal performance. Listening to the song you would scarcely believe the boy was a mere 22 years old and taking his first tentative steps into the realm of professional recording artists but he holds his own like a seasoned performer.
The song itself is smooth and sexy, sure to be in instant hit when it is released later this year. Fans of the 90s classic will be able to sit back and reminisce about the clubland culture and fans of soul will love it for the smooth vocals and gripping bass.
Keep an eye out for Daley’s other great soul tracks, and pick up your copy of Remember Me on 9 December 2012.
