With strong remix treatments from Sir LSG, Jonathan Meyer and Rune this song ought to repeat the success of the duos previous singles.
UK born singer / songwriter Joseph Junior grew up on a musical diet combining Classic Soul, Disco, Afro Beat and some Jazz, too. All aforementioned impacted his superior song-writing and helped him create a very own vocal style. Thanks to his skills and love for Soul Joseph firstly made himself a name in the UK Neo-Soul scene. Invitations to work alongside big guns such as Omar, Roachford, Mica Paris, Jocelyn Brown and Gwen McCrae followed. When he started to work with MAQman on Soulful House Music, a whole new world for him opened which he ever since enriches with his meaningful songs.
MAQman’s is an eclectic music producer and DJ residing currently in Vietnam. He started out with soulful down- and mid-tempo tracks, but soon focused on House Music. Next to his regular cohort Joseph Junior he worked with vocalists like Selina Campbell with who he landed in the USA Dance Top 40 instantly with their first release some years ago. The debut release of MAQman on GOGO Music named 'I Don’t See Love', was a seductive and meaningful vocal tune, which scored the rare and most wanted 10/10 mark in the renowned House Magazine 5 (Chicago). His second outing on GOGO Music 'No Better Love' came in August 2012 and Spirit of House (Switzerland) stated: 'Another definite moment in Soulful House history'.

Since then he managed to replenish the scene with his unique style, which is a perfect balance between groove and dance floor energy, expanding itself from house music to tribal sounds and refined stylistic solutions.

Pick of the week!
In 2010 they gave us 'Chains', in 2011 'Nightlife' and 'I don't see love' then in 2012 'No better love' and now they are back with 'Can't do without it' - of course we talk about Joseph Junior and MAQman who can do no wrong if they join forces. Slightly deeper than their previous outings, the timeless 'Can't do without it' is a sweet organic production oozing with a masterly orchestration, not to forget to mention Joseph Junior's inimitable seductive vocals. On remix duty are Sir LSG who adds his magical soulful touch to the song, Jonathan Meyer who showcases his love for percussive rhythms inspired by the world's roots sounds, and finally Rune whose melodious utterly hypnotizing deep rendition is truly breathtaking. We know we repeat ourselves, but 'Can't do without it' certainly is definite moment in the history of soulful house music...by Mike Fossati
