Boomkat Product Review:
With Larry Heard behind the glass, this radiant new 12" is a showcase release for Chad White (aka Mr. White) - a Memphis based vocalist who has a set of lungs to die for.
Soulful without becoming cloying, the A side 'You Rock Me' is a mid-tempo slinker that slips comfortably into the same pool as 'Crazy' - as loose-laced funk, disco percussion and classic piano furnish the stunning larynx. The type of song that does an awful lot whilst seeming do nothing at all, 'You Rock Me' could easily make the leap to radio and become a bona fide chart-type hit. Honest.
On the back is 'The Sun Can't Compare', a piece that outdoes the A as White takes on a classic Larry Heard acid track that recalls the glory days of the 303 - with glorious atmospherics, pin-point edits and stripped beats giving way to some epic vocal house.
