Monique Bingham shows her appreciation and love to South Africa for putting their fingers in her Pap, by allowing the country to be the first country in the world to listen to her much anticipated studio album, Best of The Last. The 2CD collection comprises 26 tracks ranging from deep to disco, down-time to peak-time, but all share a soulful sensibility and agile song-writing style that�s virtually unmatched in modern dance music.
The legendary vocal connoisseur teams up with one of the biggest House labels in SA, House Afrika, to release a timeless album that transcends us Deep House Heads and music lovers through 20 years of soulful Bigga Sounds. Best of The Last represents some of the most soul-soothing House music of the past twenty years including collaborations with Ralf GUM, Todd Terry, Blue Six, Louie Vega, Quentin Harris and Kerri Chandler among others.
Deeply entrenched in Mzansi house culture, its Monique Binghams embrace of local sound aesthetics that have led to her meteoric rise along with her unique vocal qualities. Pepsi and DJ Christos appear on this collection, as does Chymamusique, who remixed her terrific Bloody Lucky. She also recently penned a track and sang back-up for jazz legend Hugh Masekela with Ralf GUM for his sophomore album.
This album warrants our true support for a vocal House connoisseur who taken us on her love of soul-soothing sounds that transcend us to musical Cloud 9.
