Folks are just getting a listen to this Oakland soul chanteuse, and this slab (from "Even Closer", the remix version of her "Closer") finds rubs by Zion I's Amp Live and his man Mike Tiger. The title track's minimalist downbeats and warm atmosphere do it right, and the duo then surprises with a bumpin' 2-step mix. The flip's "Childhood Drama" sees producer Johnson giving the track fat hip-hop beats and a nice Peruvian flute riff. Charged.
