Grace Jones the legendry model, actress, singer and outrageous chat show guest has followed up the 2008 critically acclaimed Hurricane album with this updated dub version. 

The original songs were strong and lend themselves well to these vocally stripped down re-mixes. Jones’ distinctive voice proves to be an excellent base for samples. 

They echo around songs such as Williams dub’ to beautiful effect. Although the album is split into two halves with the original and then the dub versions of the tracks it’s possible it works well in shuffle mode.

The remixes are different enough to hold their own against the vocal versions. In fact the trip-hop style second half could well displace the likes of Massive Attack and Portishead as the sound track to dinner parties of ‘trendy’ 30 something’s across the land. 

I’ve always admired Grace Jones as a personality but my knowledge of her music has been limited to her most popular hits. I’m glad I’ve finally discovered the real Grace Jones.
