Mark Graham feat. Jean Honeymoon - Passion (Smooth Agent Records)

Smooth Agent Records is proud to release the long awaited single “Passion” by UK-based producer Mark Graham with Glasgow’s Jean Honeymoon on vocals. Having released most of his music on his own Rehab label since 2008, Mark is a producer who likes to blend classical, jazz, latin, and hip hop into his stew of dance music sounds, influenced by everything from Aphex Twin to Thelonious Monk. The vocals on the jazzy, liquid drum n’ bass of “Passion” are by Ms. Jean Honeymoon who has a unique, almost whisper-like singing style. Jean has released numerous productions from house to downtempo chill-out, and has worked with producers such as Monodeluxe, Rubberlips, Union Effect, Victor Maximilano, and Burkina Lounge.

The strong songwriting of “Passion” has lent itself to a number of exceptional remixes, touching on deep, soulful house, broken beat, and drum n’ bass styles. Smooth Agent’s own Sean Smith delivers a dreamy and soulful afro-flavored house remix that will delight the deepest of DJs. Chicago’s Union Effect (Mindfood, Smooth Agent) reveals a spacious, classic sounding deep house mix with melodic piano complimenting Jean’s lovely voice. Canadian DJ / producer Scott Totem adds a splash of tech-house to his deep treatment resulting in a pulsing, bass fueled ride while Don Clark aka Re:search (Re:direct Recordings, Deep Hype Sounds) presents a bright, cascading interpretation of “Passion.” Italy’s Monodeluxe (Little Angel, Vibe Boutique) flips the script with a broken beat, downtempo version that’s soulful and chill. Also, Cleveland’s Quentin Allen unveils two remixes under two different guises - a shuffling Deep Tech mix as Karu and a meaty drum n’ bass remix under the name of Illform. There’s a lot of variety here, courtesy of Smooth Agent Records … sit back and dive in.
