In 2005 DJ Jazzy Jeff released The Soul Mixtape which helped many listeners discover artists they may not have regularly been privy to. One such artist was Demien whose album Supernova Syndrome was released quietly via A Touch of Jazz the previous year. I’ve been on a heavy Devante Swing (Jodeci) kick lately and was reminded me of Erotic Dreams with it’s sexually charged lyrics, dope production, use of voicebox and heavy Prince influence. Just like Devante’s productions, this song has stood the test of time and still sounds good although it was recorded between ’97 or ’98.
