Honey Dijon returns with the third single from her sophomore album ‘Black Girl Magic’, ‘Downtown’, featuring Annette Bowen and Nikki-O. Honey’s latest delivery of pitch-perfect house, laden with rippling synths and crisp instrumentals, also includes three mixes from Master At Work Louie Vega on this special 12” delivery. With Honey’s blissful dedication to the dancefloor opening the release, Louie Vega’s House 90Mood Mix follows, with deep, swelling pads and expressive keys that form a fitting ode to the 90s sound conceived by Louie and his contemporaries. On the flip, Louie’s Raw Dub Mix transports the listener to the dancefloor, as flickers of Anette and Nikki’s vocal purl over a striding bassline and sultry percussion. Finally, Louie’s Downtown Disco Dub Mix closes out the package, a glossy club cut brimming with atmospheric synths and swirls of vocal, crafted to divine effect. Coming as the third cut from Honey’s upcoming LP, ‘Downtown’ is another shimmering and irresistible example of her production finesse, with Louie’s accompanying mixes as sublimely executed as to be expected from a bona fide house master.
