Blog interview: B.K.W.H

Single Review: “I Do” – Jerry Barnes

This is the new single from the man who holds down the bottom end of Chic’s sound.  And it’s so good.  Fusing hard hitting four on the floor beats held together with a big reverbed clap, with a house piano, and bouncy bass lines this track is so catchy! The vocals are in the falsetto …

This is so soulful, I can just imagine Dakota Jones rocking up to Jimmy Fallon’s looking at The Roots, uses the Force to connect with Questlove and then him counting this off like his Afrocomb is on fire and then …
