Nicole Willis, soulful chanteuse, releases another single from her acclaimed LP Soul Makeover – Siesta in late June.
Siesta is one of the slower, more sultry tracks from the LP, and this time around, it gets two new mixes: one from Finland’s Roberto Rodriguez,a spaced-out soulful dub groove and a garage mix from Temple of Soul.
More surprises abound with the B-side remixes of Heed the Sign, also from the Soul Makeover LP. The first mix comes from Finland’s premier spaceman, Jimi Tenor, a fresh and surprising acid house workout! Iceland’s GusGus also deliver a remix with laid back grooves and Chris Dawkin’s guitar solo.
Nicole Willis is from New York, and this track is taken from her debut LP Soul Makeover, produced by Nicole, Maurice Fulton and Jimi Tenor. However, Willis is no stranger to the recording industry. She has recorded with a variety of artists including Leftfield (Swords track from Rhythm and Stealth), Curtis Mayfield (!!), the The, Wax Poetic, and Deee-Lite. She also fronted the group REPERCUSSIONS (Warner Bros. US) from 1989-1995, with its New York-style of acid jazz. Her forthcoming LP for Sahko is a blend of sultry house, electro Motown soul and deep grooves.
