Deep Kiss 04:31


Second Installment of Ibadan’s Ten City reissues featuring rare Timmy Regisford Remix.

Basically starting the label with a string of Ten City edits from the likes of Joe Claussell and Jerome Sydenham, it seems fitting that Ibadan would release the original tracks the way Byron Stingily, Byron Burke and Herb Lawson intended.

Timmy Regisford's remix of, 'That's The Way Love Is', is an exception as it is not an original. A spine tingling good remix with a three-note string melody, pianos and absolutely brilliant arrangement, complete with proper horn, bass and piano solos.

'Deep Kiss', has a very contemporary vibe combining flutes, xylophones and modern House beats with Byron's crooning about the best way to get your lips wet. His vocals are quite sparse on this particular release, used mainly to create an atmosphere while the instrumentation takes center stage.

There is one thing we all want in a relationship; Devotion. Ten City give it to you through their music and especially with, 'Devotion'. Byron tells a story of someone who will always be there, while Herb's Funk guitar licks and Rhodes piano stabs fill in the gaps.

Ten City's music is House that carries more emotion and feeling than most tracks of their era and certainly way more than most current music. A reason they have the legendary status among today's House pioneers and students.
