Another elusive artist from the UK named Shelley.
You should hear her MC/sing  live, makes a swell impression, usually teams up with Makoto. The collab started in 2003  – Makoto sent his work to her and she would add the vocal part.

Secretive fella. From the UK. Part of the Reprazent (guitarist), plays the piano too. But the thing is you got to hear his voice.

Lavender (2012), a non electronic piece (consider yourself warned), it’s worth every second:

How You Make Me Smile with Jody Wisternoff (2012):

Love Finds Me with Beta 2 (2012)

Quite a range of genres, right? On the uprise for sure.

Born in 1951, gospel singer of course. Originally from Cleveland, but moved to Canada.
In 1989 he recorded a pop duet with Celine Dion (Can’t Live with You, Can’t Live Without You).
After joining an a cappella group in 1991 he sang tenor till 1994 when he left the group for his solo career.

I’ve first heard Billy in deadmau5’s Outta My Life (2009):

Because of his voice I perceived the track really energetic, although the lyrics may not seem so.

Promise Land (found only remixes):

Another track with deadmau5, released in 2009 was All You Ever Want:

A few weeks ago I featured the following song:

(I DO admit the reason I featured this track is mostly vocals, “classic” house style)

After listening to it for a few times I found the vocal quite familiar. This is why:

Max C
Sometimes spelled as Max’C he’s a versatile performer, besides being a singer he is also a songwriter, dancer, choreographer, teacher and actor. His areas of expertise are: vocal house, gospel, R&B, soul.
From Louisville, in the 80′ he moved to Helsinki (Finland), his house career began in the early 90’s with 3rd Nation (One Nation, I Believe).
He was properly (well, debatable of course) introduced to EDM with the help of  Axwell (the track was released in 2006):

I Miss You with Brever & Bakchos (released in 2010)
