Inner City bring vocal house to Armada Music. Back into the groove after 2018’s ‘Heavy’ on Kevin Saunderson’s KMS label, their new track, ‘Need Your Love’, has the band and Steffanie Christi’an ready for daytime takeovers as much as sparking activity after dark – just like Saunderson’s two breakouts from over 30 years ago.
Vocals from fellow Detroiter and Talib Kweli collaborator Christ’ian, go through the gears before landing the hook, bolstered further by strings giving the track extra life.
An additional dub mix from Saunderson and Dantiez brings the original’s low bubbling bass up to the top with a charge of extra garage swing, without letting go of a piano breakdown.
When your first two hits become club hall-of-famers and turn you into one of house’s most well-known outfits, vocal piano house done by Inner City is all the foreword needed for the new track.
Now in their fourth decade, Inner City, Kevin Saunderson, now alongside son Dantiez and with vocals from Steffanie Christi’an, are back with a sync of dance music tracks that have reaped five #1 US Billboard dance chart positions, nine Top 40 singles in the UK, and the indelible ‘Good Life’ and ‘Big Fun’.
