The heartbeat behind acclaimed recordings for Cooly’s Hot Box over the last decade, Angela Johnson possesses a timeless sounding voice that could quite easily place her back in the ’80s as well as in a contemporary market place. Perhaps that’s a major reason for her appeal and longevity as she once more bridges the generation divide on this soul-drenched dancer. Falling into the nu-soul sector, this uber slick slice of neo soul really shows Ms J’s incredible vocal to the full over a variety of backdrops, including jazzy house beats fashioned by Micky More. The end result is a beautifully crafted dreamy and seductive number oozing of summer warmth regardless of the current chilly temperatures outside. Look for her new album, ‘It’s Personal’ due in 2010.
