Sumsuch - Shine (feat. Will Brock)

Since collaborating on ‘Simpatico’, the debut release on Colour and Pitch, US soul-man Will Brock and label boss Sumsuch’s transatlantic partnership has truly blossomed. As ‘Mega Jawns’, their album ‘Ten Letters From Home’ was released in 2014 on BBE Records, with a second album due for release in 2016. Written and recorded in just one night in West Philadelphia during summer 2014, Shine is a spiritual, afro-tinged Deep House track, featuring soaring vocals and life-affirming lyrics from Will Brock.

Having created a truly unique remix for their debut single ‘Simpatico’, it seemed only right to ask aloof production maestro Q-Burns Abstract Message to do it again for ‘Shine’. Effortlessly defying genre tags as usual, his version is a tripped out, deeply touching and achingly beautiful piece of electronic music. Colour and Pitch regular Finest Wear delivers a vintage Deep House reworking, full of light, languid pads over a warm bass-line and masterful drum patterns. Closing out the package, Brock and Sumsuch offer up another taste of their forthcoming album in the form of ‘All Along’, a beautiful soul song laid over light, sunshine-infused House grooves; perfect for beach or terrace lounging.

Under the guise of Mega Jawns, Sumsuch & Brock’s new album ‘Free Yo’ Self’ is due to be released in early 2016 on BBE; until then, enjoy this taste of what’s to come.

Shine is available now, via iTunes or Beatport
