Perpignan’s Enjoy Recordings welcomes local son Brice Bertran to the fold for a supremely soulful effort. “I Wish” is an optimistic ode to love, which comes in various flavours. There is the downtempo original, two uptempo versions from Bertran for soulful and jazzy lovers, and a remix from Physics. It is another excellent and varied outing from the Enjoy imprint, keeping with the diversity of the label.
Brice Bertran aka Killersounds is an accomplished producer, arranger and keyboard player. He is as comfortable making Hip Hop and relaxed grooves as uptempo music. Over the years he’s worked on projects such as Rouge À Lèvres and has made music with artists like P18 of Mano Negra fame. Bertran cites the likes of Incognito, Moodymann, Q-Tip and Herbie Hancock as influences. He has previously appeared on Enjoy Recordings, remixing Håkan Lidbo feat.Emma’s What Is Love.
French singer Valérie Brochard is a professional vocalist, who has featured on various R’N’B and dance records. She is also known for her cover of “Sweat Dreams”.
Physics are a Swedish house act, who make deep and soulful efforts where live instrumentation is very important. The first 12” released by Physics was the Grooveyard EP, which came out in 2001 on Yellhouse. Since then, they have been a mainstay on Deeplay Music and have recorded for labels such as Large Music, Swing City and Soulstar. There have been two Physics albums, entitled First Flight (Deeplay Music) and Influences (Seamless). Physics tracks have been licensed to compilations on Ministry of Sound, Journeys By DJ, Hed Kandi, Slip n Slide and React.
- club mix This is an uplifting stormer of a mix, which will be lapped up by soulful fans. It takes its power from rising synths, on point beats and praising vocals.
- swing mix The Swing mix is a jazzier interpretation. Magical keys, jumping percussion and a hyperactive bassline combine on this version.
- Physics Remix Physics bring us a trademark soul kissed house revision. Striding beats, warming guitars and purring keys link up on this remix.
- Original Bertran’s original is a slinky downbeat ode to love. Cool keys, funked out guitars and open beats meet behind hopeful vocals here.
