XL Middleton - 2 Minutes Till Midnight (CD)

Seven inch vinyl pressing. I, Ced has been something of a "best kept secret" among creators and aficionados of modern soul music. His wide array of skills ranges from production to vocals, keys, and studio mixing. His talents have found him in the company of many heralded contemporaries, including Jean Grae & Quelle Chris, Coultrain, Jimetta Rose, and Dam Funk. I, Ced unites his distinctive "future soul" aesthetic with XL Middleton's left side bump on the remix to "Percu," first heard on Ced's What Are We Looking For? album. It's a stellar marriage of sharp synth bass, warm Moog-style leads and shimmering Rhodes chords with Ced's hypnotic vocal chants and thickly-layered percussion sections, from which the track clearly derives it's name. The remix is further heightened with an emotive vocal performance from fellow MoFunk artist Moniquea. As a bonus, the original version of "Percu" is included on the b-side, marking the first time any of the tracks from What Are We Looking For? have been pressed to wax. DON'T JUST LISTEN TO MUSIC EXPERIENCE IT.
