Lost but not least! Corrina Joseph – Live Your Life With Me (Atlantic Jaxx)
Life is often far from being what it may seem at first sight. A reality which pretty much applies to music where so many preconceived ideas tend to prevail as a matter of fact.
Take this gem titled ‘Live Your Life With Me’ for instance. It belongs to Corrina Joseph‘s repertoire and saw the light on the Atlantic Jaxx label back in 1996. With the latter being nothing but the imprint of British pair Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe. Themselves pretty much renowned for their compositions flirting with Electronic and House Music under their Basement Jaxx guise. So at first sight, you might be tempted to think ‘Live Your Life With Me’ as such, right? But when you have a listen to it, it just feels like a different story at the end.

Thus justifying her status as a sought after singer. First and foremost makin’ herself a name along with Basement Jaxx. But also on her own with the latter responsible for the production of her material. This in addition to collaborations with Nightmares On Wax, Classen Collective and Jazzanova among others…
