The Full Intention man teams up with rising stars James Hurr and RoRoe on a single-tracker that's out tomorrow
Today's exclusive track premiere comes to you courtesy of London label Perfect Havoc, as iDJ brings you a first chance to hear Jump In by Michael Gray & James Hurr feat RoRoe, which lands in stores tomorrow.
Based in Hoxton, it's fair to say Perfect Havoc generally operate at the more commercial end of the house spectrum, but for us this one stays just the right side of the line. That shouldn't come as any great surprise, of course – whether in solo mode or operating alongside Jon Pearn as Full Intention, Hustlers Convention etc, Gray has long known exactly how to walk that tricky tightrope between 'commercial' and 'credible'.
This latest offering from the bona fide scene legend finds him working with rising star producer and mix engineer James Hurr, who's previously worked with Mark Knight, Prok & Fitch and Hoxton Whores, and with RoRoe, a UK-born but NYC-based singer and rapper whose behind-the-scenes songwriting credits include cuts for Rihanna and JLS, no less. Together, they've come up with a lively little hip-houser with the kind of pop slant that, to our ears, suggests Top 40 action wouldn't be out of the question.
But you, of course, can make your own mind up below…
