Here’s a track that almost slipped away from us. Quite a change from the tracks we usually feature, “Not Enough” by Canadian Solid Stone and American songstress Jennifer Rene toes the line between progressive and deep house beautifully to create a track with a very trance-like feel. It released this past summer on Max Graham’s Re*Brand label, and if you missed it (like we did), definitely check it out.
Jennifer Rene’s made quite a comeback in 2014 with a number of new tracks, including the popular collaboration with John O’Callaghan, “Games”, but I think this is the strongest of her 2014 productions. What I love is that the vocals aren’t the forefront of the track, but just another instrument. Her voice is airy, and at times she doesn’t enunciate that well, so you can’t quite make out what she’s saying unless you listen closely. It perfectly suits the feel of the track. It’s this style that shot her to popularity in 2006 with her and Jose Amnesia’s “Louder” and “Wouldn’t Change a Thing”. Her voice is just very well suited for the deeper, more progressive sound. Hope to hear more like this from her as time goes on.
And of course, Solid Stone’s production quality is top notch. I’m admittedly not familiar with his other works, but I think I’ll go Beatport hunting now.
Also, apparently there’s a Max Graham remix brewing…
