Javonntte may hail from Detroit but his sound more naturally aligns with the likes of Kai Alce and that soulful, bumping Atlanta vibe. This 12" for Troubled Kids makes for a perfect case in point, not least on killer opening track "Walking In The Rain" with its irrepressibly funky groove and on-point vocal turn. "Yes House" takes things in a more stripped direction without compromising on warmth, while "United We Dance" heads towards an even more club-ready approach full of booming bass and sharp swinging drums. That's just the A-side, and with even more soul-powered goodness spilling out of the flip, there can surely be few house heads out there that wouldn't find a loving home for this record.
