London-based solo artist G.Logan continues to establish himself as an artist of superior quality. Boasting previous production credits for the likes of Kelis, Jay Sean and Craig David, his latest release on Defected acts as further evidence of his talents.
First heard on his self-produced 2012 mixtape ‘Almost Gave Up’, ‘How Did We’ combines deep and atmospheric house vibes with warm vocals testifying to the artist’s soul and R&B background. The synergy is a beautiful and melodic narrative focusing on two people’s coming to terms with their relationship.
First up on the remix front is Jovonn’s Mix which is led by a fuzzy bassline and Logan’s now chopped vocals before introducing his emotive chorus topped with freshly introduced piano chords and warm synths. Friend Within’s version utilises heavily swung percussion which complements the stuttered vocals before gradually building into a mammoth drop and what will surely be one of the bassline records of the year. Jovonn makes a second outing on the release with his Deeper Deep Mix, and finally there is the Club Edit of Logan’s original, soul-heavy mix completes the package.
