Honey Dijon makes a triumphant return to Classic Music Company with ‘Not About You’ from her forthcoming album ‘Black Girl Magic’. Now available on special edition grey 12” vinyl, Honey teams up with emerging Atlanta talent, singer/songwriter Hadiya George on this aptly timed ode to our human ability to be selfless. The A-Side features the original mix, illustrating Honey’s dedication to absorbing, living and breathing dance music’s origins, while exploring a new sound that offsets the darker, tougher elements of her catalogue. As Hadiya’s confounded vocal narrates, “why you always got to play the fool, that’s why I wrote this song for you,” the flawless production forms the backdrop, weaving deep grooves and rhythms with fluttering, melodic keys and Honey’s signature dancefloor-ready flare. On the flip, London-based producer and DJ KDA delivers his ‘Legacy’ Remix, with energetic keys and a jacked-up bassline giving a club-ready feel. This 12” package also features his ‘Did I Ask’ Dub, a gloriously stripped-back mix destined for the dancefloor dancefloor. Demonstrating his intriguing style, KDA’s two mixes demonstrate his ability to keep you guessing, throwing in a few funk-fuelled curve balls to keep dancers on their toes. Steeped in the sounds of the Chicago nightclubs Honey grew up in, this empowered, glossy EP is an inspired preview of what is to come on this anticipated album.
