Rachael Calladine 'Don't Walk Away’ Major Underground / MU006
Acclaimed Soul singer Rachael Calladine (formerly of Us3), reveals a glossy cover of Jade’s 1992 R&B classic, 'Don't Walk Away’ for Major Underground. Paul Adam accompanies Rachael’s warm soulful tones with a touch of house glamour, offering a feast of bright piano and string melodies and a mighty key solo. Italo House duo MLMC deliver a high energy piano house vibe, and to close out the package, Aerobatik work up a chilled downtempo groove, powered by a low slung bassline and funky beats.
