Tchami ft. Kaleem Taylor – Promesses (Radio Edit)
Ministry of Sound has historically been the place where successful tunes go to receive their commercial epiphany. Having sent “Tsunami” to the top of the UK charts back in 2014 and kept a firm pulse on the popular threshold, French house breakthrough Tchami is the next hot prospect to enter the label’s well-oiled machine in pursuit of crossover appeal.
The year passed was one of outright illumination for Tchami, who seamlessly spotlighted where the buzz sound of 2014 could be given a fully customized twist. Whilst the dance community argued whether it was ‘deep’ or ‘future’ house, “Promesses” was preparing for its second wind, very much with the radio market in mind. One year after its free release via Fools Gold, the vocal work of Kaleem Taylor paired with that gritty and unapologetically distorted house is more relevant to the global market than ever before. Epitomising that yin/yang balance that is currently keeping vocal house music in the vogue, the re-issue is sure to signal another fruitful year to an artist who may prove one of France’s most authoritative dance offerings of the past decade.
