Queen Feel is the debut album from Seattle to Oakland transplant JusMoni and her producer / deejay WD4D. A true collaborative effort, this album finds both artists pushing their boundaries and soaring to new heights. The EP was released at the end of last summer, garnering many great reviews and extensive radio support. The duo is now taking it a step further with the release of Queen Feel [Deluxe], packaging both the original album with 11 new remixes from a handful of talented producers. The 11 remixers are OCnotes, Sabzi, Kid Smpl, Benito, eLan, Keyboard Kid, The Flavr Blue, Suttikeeree, Introcut & WD4D, Kid P, and Benny Loco. Seattle's OCnotes provides a beautiful, melancholy house version of “Take All Night,” while California heavy-hitters Benito and eLan each recreate “Here For You," taking it to the next level of bass and beat music. On the more mellow, night-bus vibe, Kid Smpl provides his signature "reverb-soaked-vocals-in-the-back" version of “Tattoo,” while Lil' B's producer, Keyboard Kid, takes it in the opposite direction with deep, hitting bass and bright synth work. Everybody involved truly has a unique take on each remix. Sure to hit home with a diverse crowd of listeners, this is a mission accomplished!
"Jusmoni brings both wisdom and playfulness to her songs, and delivers them in a wily soprano reminiscent of Erykah Badu. Her recent work with producer WD4D has an experimental edge that's tempered by her enthusiasm and warmth… "
"It thrives in spacious atmospherics: echoey vocal tracks; isolated drum sounds; you feel like you're floating in an empty space, kept afloat only by the erotically-paced beat and waves of sexual tension."
"Imagine Purity Rings meets TNGHT, meaning imagine the slow plodding cadence and vocals from Purity Rings and the bouncy elements heard coming out of the TNGHT camp… "
Seattle vocalist JusMoni and producer WD4D have linked up for a great, stripped-down-to-its-birthday-suit slice of future R&B (it's a distant relative of Ann Peebles' "I Can't Stand the Rain")… Stellar work, everybody."
