MARTIN VALLÉE & VICTOR PERRY, “Whispers”
Following up their bouncy take on Stevie Wonder’s “Uptight” last Spring, French producer Martin Vallée and US pop/soul singer/songwriter Victor Perry have once again joined forces for “Whispers”. With this song, they head straight into a softer Eurohouse mix that’s best suited either early on in the evening or later at night. There’s an interesting song structure here, with a subtle introduction, that’s followed by the hook within its first minute. This allows Victor to then wax his eloquent voice over the crux of the story, remembering the whispers of a past lover. Queue the hook again and the song bobs its way playfully until it’s time to get closer again… “Whispers” is definitely a pleasing choice atypical of its genre and my compliments to the artists for taking some chances with a gentler shade of house music.
