Jill Scott – Cross My Mind (Cosmo’s Midnight Club Edition)
Another one of my Achilles heals in music are snappy piano chords moving along to a house beat. With the addition of the vocal chops, this song speaks to my funky side. That side of me dreams about crushing dance circles and having the ability to perform crazy breakdance moves.
There’s also the nostalgia factor that makes my knees weak. This song takes an older song and puts a modern electronic spin to the entire thing. Jill Scott is a platinum selling recording artist, and her single, Cross My Mind, won the Grammy for Best Urban/Alternative Performance in 2005.
Cosmo’s Midnight are twins from Sydney. 2017 was a big year for the duo, having completed their first international tour and releasing two #1 singles on Triple J: Mind Off and History. I’ve posted these two songs below because they’re awesome, and if you haven’t heard of these artists before like I had, you can get to know them a little more through some of their best work.
The duo produces a variety of electronic music containing elements of pop and R&B. They were signed to Astral People after wining a remix competition for Flume’s single, Sleepless. In 2014, they signed with Sony Music Australia after doing official remixes for Panama, Anna Lunoe and AlunaGeorge.
I posted History on the Rubber Ducky edition of Friday Feelz early in 2017.
