Purple Velvet "She Took Your Love"
- Words: Leo Maymind
Chris James and Lee Dearn make up UK duo Purple Velvet, and the two appear to have a penchant for the kind of lush, deeper side of house that seems to always be welcome on a dancefloor somewhere. On their track "She Took Your Love," James and Dearn introduce a nice, overdriven kick into a spritely disco groove before carving out space for a sensual, minimal chord progression. And the devil lurks in the details here: white noise creeps into the chords cautiously while the synthesizer's release is continuously shortened, adding some nice subtle variance. Percussion embellishments help move the track along, too, and though it's not particularly dynamic or adventurous, Purple Velvet's tune displays a style of classic house that could easily fill a room.
