Luminous, the forthcoming EP from Kent man, Draper, looms large this Friday (January 13). He is a producer and collaborator who has written for a number of big names including Rita Ora, Ellie Goulding, All Saints and Twin Atlantic. Now others, Chimes, are doing work for him, via Chimes’ remix of EP track and single, “Jealous”. This, of course, features the talents of BB Diamond.
“Jealous” is funky with a pounding drum beat. The vocals echo and ring out, helping the lyrics sink in. The chorus is a face melting one, emphatic and bold. There are plenty of house music crescendos, ones that would make people go bananas at the clubs. It then strips back, adding each dynamic gradually before setting off the fireworks. Funky guitar licks fade out.
