Monique Bingham has been responsible for some of the most poignant house music of the past twenty years. A serial collaborator, Bingham is joined by the likes of Ralf GUM, Blue Six, Louie Vega, Quentin Harris and Kerri Chandler on Best Of The Last (2CD set). The twenty six tracks range from deep to disco, down-time to peak-time, but all share a soulful sensibility and agile song-writing style that’s virtually unmatched in modern dance music.
It’s Monique Bingham’s embrace of local sound aesthetics that have led to her meteoric rise. Pepsi and DJ Christos appear on this collection, as does Chymamusique, who remixed her terrific Bloody Lucky. She also recently penned a track and sang back-up for jazz legend Hugh Masekela with Ralf GUM for his sophomore album.
