Alison Valentine – No One

Maxwell's near-forgotten soul jam from 2001 has been given a cheeky UKG/House makeover for 2013.

Where Maxwell’s original was a slick, mature soul cut – perhaps the aural equivalent to being wined and dined at an uncomfortably classy food joint – Alison Valentine’s version of No One rejects the fanciful and takes us straight to the ‘floor. Bumpin’ ‘n’ grindin’ being the order of the day, the US-based artist’s vocals silkily drape the glossy, Moonboots -produced backing track, leaving us wondering whether this is instead a lost Sweet Female Attitude single.
