This new track from London artist (and total babe) Billon is really vibing on me today. It’s called ‘One That I Want’ and it has a solid groove that just makes me want to bounce around the room – and that’s exactly what you want on a Friday right?!
‘One That I Want’ has an infectious groove that is heightened by its 90’s house beat, jacking synths and soulful vocals sampled from a group called Miles Benjiman.
“I wrote ‘One That I Want’ last year. When I was at uni in Brighton I worked at the record label Tru Thoughts – it’s a great indie label and has some really interesting artists. As I was working there I had access to a lot of things like stems and acapellas of their back catalogue. I dug out some by a group called Miles Benjiman. I’m a big fan of their album which is quite D’Angelo inspired…This one vocal really stood out to me and I loved the verse melody so I decided to sample it and built the track around it. I’m really happy with the result and that other DJs are feeling it and supporting it. Big up the Tru Thoughts team and Miles Benjiman for letting me use the vocal!” – Billon.
