Epitomising the very best of their hometown’s unparalleled musical heritage, Detroit’s Dames Brown are the vocal trio you may not yet know by name but are sure to know by voice. Lending their exquisite range to a number of modern house essentials, including Sophie Lloyd’s ‘Calling Out’, The Vision featuring Andreya Triana ‘Heaven’ and David Penn’s ‘Nobody’ in recent years, Athena Johnson, Teresa Marbury and LaRae Starr now reveal ‘What Would You Do?’, the first standalone single from their debut album on Defected, showcasing the trio front and centre. Produced by long-time collaborator of the group and fellow Motor City native Amp Fiddler and Mahogani Music regular Andrés, this slick, funk-filled and typically soulful release has already caught the attention of esteemed selectors like Natasha Diggs and Louie Vega. A record that captures funk, house and soul from across the spectrum, Amp and Andrés’ production muscle pushes the musical boundaries with fitting tenacity for the Dames’ vocal delivery. A powerful combination of Detroit’s finest, ‘What Would You Do?’ makes a fitting first release to represent Dames Brown’s diverse musicality, with exquisite production, striking song-writing and a hefty dose of house authenticity working together to create a future classic.
