Nothing Matters When Listening to Soulpersona’s Debórah Bond Remix

One of 2011’s best soul albums came from DC songstress, Debórah Bond. I’ve spun it so much chez SoulCuts that I considered renaming the bedroom Madam Palindrome’s Boudoir. Mrs SoulCuts, however, objected. She still hasn’t forgiven me for that time I rechristened the bathroom the R Kelly Suite

I raved about Deborah’s Madam Palindrome upon its release, hailing it is an impressive and coalescent collection of contemporary soul. It hung together beautifully thanks to the consistent production across the project from her band, Third Logic. I’m all for diversity in sound and styles across albums, but the multi-producer approach regularly disappoints. Mr SoulCuts always favours a good, old fashioned single-producer album over any ragbag collection of hot tracks and fillers. As such, Madam Palindrome was right up my street, and I didn’t think any of the tracks needed to be remixed, however…

Following on from last year’s release, Deborah has recruited DIGISOUL head honcho Soulpersona to remix one of Madam Palindrome’s best tracks, the funky chugger, Nothing Matters. In SoulP’s hands, the cut is reborn as an ethereal, eighties-inspired rare groove, destined to hit home with a wide range of soul aficionados. SoulP drapes Debórah’s warm and inviting vocals in a dreamy and supple, stretched-out soundscape. It’s that rare beast: a remix that stands unsupported as its own song. Soulpersona’s Raregroove Remix of Debórah Bond’s Nothing Matters is the very definition of a red hot jam.

You can purchase the track via iTunes. Mr SoulCuts will also be spinning it on this Thursday’s SoulCuts 2012 for SoulandJazz.com, which will feature a whole host of other fresh jams including sneaky peeks at new albums from Incognito and Quantic & Alice Russell. The link will be up tomorrow, should you care to join me! :)
