Delivering a perfect fusion of House and R&B sensibilities, multi-platinum selling producer and songwriter Mike City teams up with legendary vocalist Faith Evans for summer anthem ‘When I Luv’.
The first single to be taken from Mike City’s forthcoming album ‘The Feel Good Agenda’ coming later this year on BBE, the illustrious pedigree of artists involved in ‘When I Luv’ is further bolstered by a remix from New York’s most celebrated DJ, Kenny Dope.
Equally reminiscent of golden-era late 90’s R&B as classic soulful house, ‘When I Luv’ is a powerful back & forth duet performed between Mike City himself and hip hop / soul queen Faith Evans, exploring universal feelings of fear and uncertainty when it comes to giving your heart to another. Kenny Dope guides ‘When I Luv’ expertly onto the dance-floor with an energetic and brash reworking. Heavy drums and a massive synth hook neatly juxtapose the original’s smooth, jazzy chords and of course those soulful vocals. An instrumental version and ‘Keyapella’ are also included: perfect tools for creative DJs.
Writing and producing his first #1 record back in the year 2000 (‘I Wish’ performed by Carl Thomas), Mike went on to work with Brandy, Rihanna, Angie Stone and Jamie Foxx as well as penning Sunshine Anderson’s smash hit ‘Heard It All Before’. Released in June 2017, new album ‘The Feel Good Agenda’ boasts cameo vocal appearances from leading lights of the urban music scene including: Faith Evans, Lalah Hathaway, Dwele, Teedra Moses, Junior and the man whose voice kick-started Mike’s career, Carl Thomas.
