Player Mark Grant-Girl With U/Blackstone
74/Vol 3 September 30, 2004
Chi-town aficionados may
recall Mark Grant from various outings on likes of Cajual and
Guidance. Now he’s the latest producer to start his own imprint,
and his first release hits the deep soulful spot for those who like
their vocals without the Saturday night gloss of the mainstream
soulful house mafia. Singer Russoul strikes a pose that conjures up
the image of Amp Fiddler on a housey buzz – not a bad place to be.
Grant keeps it deep and minimal with a subtle jazz flourish, leaving
Andre Harris to venture into Classic territory with a set of tweaky
deep acid grooves. Promising.
