One of my favorite releases this year came from Lapalux who until I had the chance to review his six track release Many Faces Out Of Focus hid under my radar. After hearing his take on modern RnB however I quickly became a fan and this morning he dropped both a stream and a download of his fantastic take on Gwen Stefani’s Luxurious. Taking his approach to the track with deep bass groves and expert use of the vocals I feel like the track should have just been labeled Lapalux feat. Gwen Stefani. The percussion is relaxed and shimmering sounds surround the snippets of Stefani’s voice that even gets a touch of syrup toward the end creating a rumbling romantic excursion of a listen. Expect this one to blow up before you know it and here is both a sample stream and the download link so you can get your summer grinding started.
