I believe you may recall the legendary DJ Ricky Morrison, also known for his infamous record shop in London "Catch A Groove" and for the production group M&S which he founded with Fran Sidoli. To name just a few of their hits we remember: "Deeper", "So Special", and M&S Presents the Girl Next Door "Salsoul Nugget (If U Wanna)".
We are more than happy to welcome them on Tony Records for our next release.
This song is a very classy house tune. The "Sure Shot Vocal" is a quality version with an up-to-date beat and Shaun's smooth vocal line. The "Sure Shot Dub" has the same elements but just with the chorus line going.
The Kenny Carpenter Remixes complete the single's package with his very own interpretation of the song. Kenny says: "I have loved Shaun Escoffery ever since I heard his first release. His song "Days Like This" was a legendary big hit in NYC and it was an honor and a pleasure to work with him."
Mike Fossati from his "Spirit Of House" blog says: "..a mesmerizing production featuring outstanding vocals, dramatic strings, lascivious synth melodies, gorgeous flute and a killer jazzy piano over smooth yet infectious rhythms. A fascinating release bringing back memories from the past..."
ABOUT Shaun Escoffery
Championed by the likes of Elton John, Shaun Escoffery was hailed as one of Britain's brightest talents when he arrived on the R&B scene in 2002. Born in East London, Escoffery grew up in a musical family with his singer mother and DJ father. While at college he started to write and record tracks, and soon landed a part in the Chaka Khan-fronted musical Mum I Wanna Sing. In 2001, Oyster Music showed interest in his independent release "Space Rider" and promptly signed him, re-releasing the track a year later to widespread interest from the likes of influential DJs Trevor Nelson and the Dreem Team. Featuring collaborations with 4hero, MJ Cole, and Ed Case. However, his talent soon became recognized in the U.S., with a personal invitation from Lennox Lewis to sing the National Anthem at his title bout with Mike Tyson in Memphis and the likes of Erykah Badu and Angie Stone requesting his services.
