Boomkat Product Review:
Deadly lovers reggae flip of George Michael’s slow dance evergreen - impossible-to-find or super spenny on 2nd hand market, now backed with Jura Soundsystem’s reverberating version
Cooked up by producer Brent Beecher for his wife, Melody only a year after George Michael’s seminal release, the 1985 Jamaican cut of ‘Careless Whisper’, is, by some measures, as perfect as the original. It effortlessly transposes the vibe from the wine bar to the blues, authentically accentuating the OG’s reggae-soul influences with timeless results that have been sought-after by those in the know, but have also eluded diggers due to scarcity or (understandably) steep 2nd hand asking prices.
The eight minute ‘Careless Whisper (Club Mix)’ is beautifully re-voiced by Melody on a subtly tuffer bassline and sprinkled with a sort of lovers stardust that Jura Soundsystem dial up to deeply seductive levels in their Lovers Version, splicing elements of the club and dub mixes with judicious use of reverb and late night lust that hits the mark spot-on.
