In the Deep
In the Deep tongues-itself-in-cheek with the amused ‘Darker Than You’; reveals the naughty ode to pleasure-pain, ‘In the Presence of’…; offers a fiercely heartbroken ‘Ultimately, Darling’; stalks one-lover-too-many in ‘Vexed’; and weaves a tempestuous dance of masochistic seduction in the tango-inspired ‘Proximity’. In the Deep is a painfully keen erotic introspection intertwined with trippy beats, jazzy upright bass, cinematic strings, and naughty thoughts imparted by a delicious voice.
Jette-Ives proudly presents its debut album, In the Deep. Accurately described by Raves Magazine as “absolutely sumptuous” and by Music Monthly as “moody, devilish trip hop”, In the Deep is a gorgeous ride through a cinematic landscape of lust and heartache, pleasure and pain. From start to finish, the album thrills as it skillfully moves between fiery anthems and steamy insinuatory ballads, providing the perfect soundtrack for a late night tryst.
Jette-Ives is the sultry amalgamation of writer/singer Jette Kelly and composer/producer Holmes Ives. Jette is a classically trained vocalist whose powerful voice, intimate lyrics, and charismatic stage presence have enabled her to tour Europe and share festival playbills with names such as The Chemical Brothers, Scissor Sisters, and Franz Ferdinand. Ives is a renowned composer-producer who has released over forty singles on labels including Bedrock, Six Degrees, Global Underground, Caffeine, Renaissance, and Yoshitoshi. Ives has produced and remixed for artists such as Moby, Bebel Gilberto, Deep Dish, BT, and John Digweed.
“And years passed by just so that you could find that after a while the tears run dry — salted imprints down the sides of your cheeks ” -J. Kelly
The sweet, sensual vocals of Jette Kelly and the unique rhythms and textures of Holmes Ives combine to create a mature and endearing downtempo album.
One of the most astonishing listens of 2006
