Ahead of her artist album this year, one the UK's most treasured vocalists Roisin Murphy delivers a solo dance cannon for Crosstown Rebels.
'Jealousy' is an unashamed slice of dance-floor hedonism from the acclaimed singer, taking Roisin's compelling vocals atop an indelible bassline in both a house and disco workout. Following recent releases with The Vinyl Factory and Jamie Jones' Hot Creations, together with her cart-topping background in Moloko, Murphy has become one of the most competent, enduring and influential figures in the pop, disco and electronic music worlds.
Co-written and produced by the great unsung modern day house hero, The Crooked Man AKA DJ Parrot, formally of Sweet Exorcist (Warp) and All Seeing I (FFRR), amongst many other aliases, he has been a bastion of the Sheffield sound since the late 80s.
"Parrot understands dancing music and he understands me. This is fast and furious; he says it's roller-disco music. The backing track sounded so frantic, the lyric wasn't long coming to me. So I just tried to create a vocal as demented as the music!" Roisin Murphy.
Irish singer-songwriter Roisin Murphy originally broke into the charts as the frontwoman for the chart-topping Moloko, delivering music that was leftfield electronic and pop-orientated. However, her consequent output with The Vinyl Factory and guest vocal presence on labels like Hot Creations has demonstrated her deep love affair with house music.
'Jealousy' was also mixed by the legendary Eric Kupper, who was a production partner with Frankie Knuckles and Dave Morales whose K-Scope releases were a staple of 90s American NY House.
