L’Aryoye – Love 4 A Minute review
A real gem, this supremely funky and slick nu-boogie bomb will remind you of many things, but will still uniquely burn itself onto your brain after a couple of spins. L’Aroye (aka Frenchman Thomas Arroyo) has already released acclaimed tunes like “Be The One” and “The Meet”, and has been supported by Jazzanova, Patrick Forge, Gilles Peterson and 4Hero to name but a few.
Sounding in equal parts like Change (Luther Vandross’s first disco/boogie gig) and PYT-mode Michael Jackson, the production on this is second to none. Every single note is groomed and smoothed out to perfection, with L’Aroye’s voice sounding soulful but never cheesy.
The release comes with a range of different formats, with the dub and instrumental being as useful as the vocal. With any luck, this should be a smash really soon.
