Silky UK soul meets deep house in “Lost Without You” by @iamJamesCarter1 featuring #ILIRA

JAMES CARTER featuring ILIRA, “Lost Without You”

19 year old producer/DJ James Carter has been on the tip for the last year or so, acquiring support from folks like Matoma and The Chainsmokers in the process for his remixes.  He’s also released a number of originals, which continues with “Lost Without You” featuring vocalist ILIRA.  It’s bright deep house with catchy drops all in the right places.  But I suppose what’s most attractive is how James has used ILIRA’s vocal to create a late 80s/early 90s UK R&B vibe, that clearly recalls people like Lisa Stansfield and Mica Paris.  In the UK this style is extremely successful, but in North America it has a niche market and always sounds refreshing and vibrant.  The lyrics are familiar but with a few kicks in the mix too.  Get to know James Carter’s music as I think you’ll be hearing it more, so start off with “Lost Without You” at the link above.
