James Fox "Close Your Eyes"
- Words: Glenn Jackson
South Londoner James Fox is another name that can be added to the growing list of up-and-coming UK producers offering their take on the warmer side of house music. And although it may be just a few weeks late, "Close Your Eyes" comes loaded with enough summertime vibes—thanks to its sun-kissed pads, soulful organ blips, playful percussion, and sultry vocal refrain—to make us fondly remember the not-so-distant nights where a cold beer and a deep, rolling tune like this would have made just the right combination. It's a shame this track didn't see a proper release, as was planned before Fox reportedly ran into some "sample clearance issues," but if this tune is any indication, Fox will have plenty more pieces of glowing house in the days ahead
