After last year’s success with “Brandy & Coke,” versatile UK producer DJ Q teamed up again with UK singer Louise Williams for the lead single off of his upcoming full-length debut. DJ Q has honed his user-friendly sound lately by reducing a lot of his flair. On “Trust Again,” he brings an updated, uptempo southern groove that benefits from Williams’ fluttering vocal performance, which covers up the repetition of the track’s pop structure but not the depth of its sounds. Given the push from Q’s label, Local Action, that of FACT editor Tom Lea, and the producer’s added exposure on BBC radio, we could be hearing more of his consistently above-average output on our side of the Atlantic this year.
