#songoftheday / REVIEW: Disclosure – “Holding On” ft. Gregory Porter

Is this the same Gregory Porter of the jazz world, who once sang “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” with Jamie Cullem?  Why, yes — yes, it is… His is not a voice I ever would have ever expected to mesh well with Disclosure’s dubby beats but somehow it works.  I know, a jazz singer shouldn’t fit perfectly on an electronic music stomper — not in theory anyway — but it’s really quite good, the result being a calm, cool and collected electro drive with a mint, soulful vocal.    So cool, in fact, that it’ll frost up your earbuds.

My only small complaint would be that the beats essentially sound like every other Disclosure song.  I hope the rest of the new album finds them trying on some different clothes.
