The Djoon Experience / Kenny Bobien – Old Landmark

Lost but not least! The Djoon Experience feat. Kenny Bobien – Old Landmark (Rocco Late Nite Mix) (Cheers Records)

Here we have a so to say pianopella mix over a minimal rhythm pattern. The whole serving as the ideal environment for the highly vibrant Gospel-influenced vocal performance by the likes of falsetto maestro Kenny Bobien. Definitely the best version from the remix pack which saw the light back in 2010. With Rocco reachin’ the peak of his art on this. Therefore transforming ‘Old Landmark’ into an essential masterpiece. Meanwhile standing as a beautiful wink to The Djoon Club which stands as the mecca of Soulful House Music in Paris!!!

Overview
New Jersey’s Kenny Bobien has forged himself a reputation as one of the most in-demand singers in the House scene. With thanks to a unique falsetto style, he is widely seen as the “King of Gospel House Music”. Even though he left his imprint in other genres such as R&B while collaborating with many big names. From Teddy Pendergrass to Jennifer Holiday, Taylor Dayne or Celine Dion.

Kenny has powered countless club anthems. From his early works as a background vocalist along with Ten City in the second half of the 80’s. To his collaborations with some of the biggest producers in the House scene. From Kerri Chandler to Louie Vega and Blaze. But also B.O.P. and Frankie Feliciano. As many meetings which gave birth to classics such as ‘Reach’, ‘Rise Above The Storm’, ‘Hiya Love’ and ‘Father’ among others. Not to mention his cover version of ‘Why We Sing’ with post-production work by the likes of Big Moses and Johnny Dangerous. Or his memorable duet with Stephanie Cooke on ‘Love’s Been Right Here’. This in addition to ‘Old Landmark’ and ‘Baptize Me’ along with The Djoon Experience.

Kenny also happened to contribute to the memorable ‘Sweet Chariot’ under the Club Artists United guise. Then later on added his voice to the Blaze present UDAUFL‘s ‘Keep Hope Alive’ album. Meamwhile, he more recently blessed us with gems such as ‘Movin’ On’ and ‘Where I Live’, respectively with Gianluca Pighi and Wipe The Needle.

His latest delivery – ‘Love Is On The Way’ – along with producer Jose Burgos standing as another staple to be added to his already impressive list. With aditional thanks to Josh Milan whose remixing work puts it into another dimension…
