Copyright – Voices & Visions (Defected)
London based Copyright make a very particular type of smooth soul-kissed house music, which has been airbrushed in order to remove any ruffles. They enjoy giving us big vocal stormers with gospel ideals, sanitised Afro grooves and retro influenced cuts, all delivered in their trademark style. Voices & Visions is actually a tale of two halves, with the first half featuring the aforementioned types of original productions and the second half given over to Copyright remixes and revisions of their own tunes. As far as the original material is concerned, highs appear in the form of the god fearing Wizeman and jarring Deeper, both vocalized by Imaani. Special remixes include the intense Ferrer & Sydenham version of He Is, which features Song Williamson on vocals, and Copyright’s golden Re-Edit of MAW and India’s I Can’t Get No Sleep. At times their grooves may be a little too smooth for their own good, but Copyright are experts at what they do and have created some wonderful soul-kissed house moments.
