About this item
Trevor Lawrence Jr. has a CV that reels off a who's who of collaborations: Lawrence's performance and recording credits include Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder and Quincy Jones to name a few. Here he makes his Local Talk debut (on 7" format too - another first for the label), with original track "Tiptoe" which comes backed with a remix from one DJ Spinna. The track is a summery soul jam full of radio friendly pop inflections; seductive, hushed verses combined with powerful, catchy chorus parts. With the right marketing and major label influence I'd bet you'd be hearing this all over the major stations and playlists this Summer... we shall see!
On the remix tip, Brooklyn legend DJ Spinna applies his magic touch to the track, flipping the mood and tempo and turning out an accomplished, modern funky house number that'd go down a storm at Southport Weekender (RIP).
Matt says: Did we have a blast of Summer last week? I'm sure we did. Since then records like this have made much more sence here in the shop. Fingers crossed they don't fade into a cloudy grey obscurity as the weather subsides and instead enjoy their well deserved time in the sun this Summer.
