23-year-old New Jersey native Jenaux (real name Eugene Veltman) brought the heat in a big way with his newest release. Titled "Love & Devotion" featuring Kelli-Leigh, it's well thought out, funk filled, and fun with a bass line sure to make you want to move your feet.
Teaming up with Veltman on the track is London-based singer/songwriter Kelli-Leigh, who has been featured on a plethora of well-known releases with artists such as SANTEY, Low Steppa and Eli Crust. Her vocals lay the groundwork for "Love & Devotion," serving as an accompaniment as opposed to being overbearing. The groovy bass line contrasts well with Leigh's sultry and seductive vocal range.
The vibe of the song itself is fun, retro and highly danceable, combining elements from what feels like early Daft Punk with a nostalgic mid '90s club pop (think La Bouche and Haddaway). It starts off slow and tranquil, then quickly but comfortably shifts into a funky yet melodic track that would be a surefire hit if played at a kick back or after hours.
"Love & Devotion" is already making big waves. Upon being released it claimed a spot in Spotify's "New Music Friday Cratediggers" and "New music London" categories. Jenaux put two years of work into perfecting it. Between finding the perfect vocalist and composing everything from scratch, it's easy to see that he's put in the time and effort in to making one of the next great dance classics.
