PREMIERE! 'Sweet' by ISSA feat Thea Austin

A treat for the deep, soulful house lovers

The single's out on Monday, with six mixes to choose from

What better way to kick off the weekend than with another excellent track premiere? This one comes courtesy of US producer ISSA and her ISSA Music label. Sweet is out via Traxsource on Monday (25 June) and available everywhere else from 9 July, but today you can check out the Original Mix right here...

Based in Los Angeles, ISSA has a long track record in the dance music industry: a vocalist, songwriter, producer, remixer and percussionist, she's worked with the likes of Erykah Badu and Whitney Houston and had her own tracks signed to such respected imprints as Madhouse, Peppermint Jam, Salted and Simma Black. For this latest release on her own label she's in producer mode, with vocal duties taken care of by Thea Austin. Ms Austin also voiced Snap!'s Rhythm Is A Dancer back in the day, but that wouldn't necessarily lead you to expect the haunting, jazzy performance she turns in here.

The pair wrote Sweet together in Sedona, Arizona, which ISSA tells us "is well-known as a high energy, spiritual vortex". Elsewhere on the full release you'll find a dub and remixes from Soledrifter, Callvin, WillowMan and Thea Austin herself (making her production debut) - all are plenty playable, but we were just as taken by the Original, which will suit fans of that classic deep, soulful west coast house sound to a tee.

See what you think...
