This time presenting the beguiling and highly captivating vocals of Rainie Lassiter (formally from the group De’ Lacy). Here we have another unique display of ‘from the heart’ lyrics which sound so sweet sonically. The track originally produced by Shawn Lucas shows off his writing and production skills on the strings and knowingly how to create and adapt to bring the best out of Rainie’s unforgettable vocal.
Also we would like to welcome Coflo to the MM family who’s supplied a subliminal remix infused with his original Afro-Brazilian style house. Which stays true to the American style house yet sends such a vibe for any house dancer or listener. Makin’ a big name for himself and is no stranger to the scene producing this music we love. We hope you enjoy this meaningful song as much as we do!

One would never guess that “Your Time to Shine” was written during a particularly challenging period: Its poetic stanzas are the picture of positive projection, offering an uplifting mantra that lets its listener know that even what may feel like the worst circumstances aren’t ever a waste of time — that, indeed, better days always await anyone who’s sure they exist! On the musical front, longtime London producer/tastemaker Lee Gomes aka Wipe The Needle scintillating mix enriches the track with a jazzy yet slight broken-beat feel, flush with infectious, playful rhythms that underscore its funky sound and ensure maximum dance sweat. Lady Alma’s addictive, heavy-style vocals skilfully assure how “what doesn’t kill you makes you strong,” adding to the Philadelphia favourite’s usually-unforgettable display of from-the-heart lyrical excellence, a real bonus amid her lush, layered backgrounds’ swarming harmonies. By the end of enjoying “Your Time to Shine,” you’ll not only be reminded that life isn’t all that bad, but you’ll also know that if you just keep pushing against all odds, you’ll absolutely see your aims met and eventually feel your glory in the end. Get into this song – and get into its message of affirmation, self-care and liberation — whenever you need to reset or encourage yourself. And there’s nothing like forwarding it to a friend you’re certain could find some sorely-needed uplift and motivation in its sweet, swaying sonics. Time to Shine..

This song entitled ‘Like Summer’ which has been written by Aisling Iris, her lyrics and voice have been described as possessing an almost conversational intimacy, with a smooth contralto that she deftly wraps around the melodies, swooping up every so often to a lilting jazzy falsetto.
Originally released last year (almost to date) on MM, we now bring you the remix courtesy of Sol Brown who brings his soulful uplifting vibes which works in harmony and with Aisling’s vocals. Also featuring Mike Patto on keys which brings added funk which will raise spirits high upon listening on those warm nights on the dance floor. Like Summer!
