Terry Grant Feat Jennifer Horne "I'll Kill You"

Out Now on Bedrock Records

Atmosphere. Sheer brilliant atmosphere is the first thing that comes to mind with this stellar track. This track first started turning heads when it was featured in Sandra Collins' Essential Mix, before it was picked up and signed to Bedrock. Nashville isn't exactly what you would link with lush soundscapes, but that is exactly where Terry Grant is from.

The Original Mix features a heavy beat and driving bassline, complimented by some beautiful guitar riffs. But it is Jennifer Horne's vocals which really take the track to the next level. The emotion in her voice is extremely powerful, and complimented perfectly by the guitar and other lush string effects. This track combines both serenity and power with magnificent effect. Whilst it may not suit a peak time club type environment, that should not detract at all from the pure quality of the track. Terry Grant's deep seeded roots in music are definately on show here.

John Debo has been known on the scene for over 10 years now, and his work always sounds modern, no matter how old it is. His mix here is no exception, and will surely withstand the test of time. Staying very true to the original, more of a groove is introduced in the way of an updated bassline, and some extra percussion. The vocal reverbs and twists its way in and out of the composition. The string effects are filtered and float over the top as a subtle melody which add a very unique twist to the Original. Whilst lacking the raw power of the Original, it is very solid mix none the less.

Terry Grant has exploded onto the scene, and this is the start of what is sure to be a rewarding career for him. This track has been receiving play by some of the biggest names in the business, and positive word of mouth from everyone I have spoken to. This is definately someone to watch out for in the future.
