A dazzling love ballad, “The Perfect Blues” sees Jesse Boykins III at his best – spellbinding harmonies and lyrics float over textured claps, keyboards, and back-up vocals.
If the original wasn’t salivating enough, the remixes seal the deal. Jaques Greene further demonstrates his talents with a remix that can only be described as house-blues, or as simply brilliant. The melody bleeds through like sunlight between the clouds, Jesse’s vocal all the more beautiful in its sudden exposure.
Not to be outdone, electronic music’s most demented new talent Machinedrum does what he does best; bring some fun to the proceedings. With a swing Timbaland would be proud of, he doffs his hat to D’n’B and widens out the melody to an addictive rapture.
