Delicate slow jams that pack an emotional punch.

Label: Gloriette Records
Released: 5th May 2017
Rating: ★★★★

Nite Jewel’s fourth album ‘Real High’ sees Ramona Gonzalez luxuriating in an intoxicating warm bath of tender, delicate slow jams that pack an emotional punch.

Everything is perfectly poised and measured. Nite Jewel has always been a compelling musician but here she makes a little go a long way. The music flits from bubbling electronica to loose-limbed R&B grooves but never overpowers the songs or Nite Jewels' sense of character.

It’s the sort of dance music where you can turn the sanctuary of your bedroom under covers at night into glorious dancefloor euphoria. Understated disco bangers like the ecstatic ‘When I Decide (It’s Alright)' highlight the album’s subtle charms.

Elsewhere, ‘Part Of Me’ swells with passion and ‘R We Talking Long’ recalls the best Janet ballads. Dealing with love and passion in its purest forms, it’s Nite Jewels best expression yet of heartbreak and triumph. Martyn Young
