Dive into the soulful, uplifting soundscape of Crate Classic’s Reggae/Jungle fusion “More Time”.

Last week Friday, prolific UK production duo Crate Classics released their feel-good new single “More Time” featuring Nottingham singer-songwriter Liam Bailey. The track is a smooth, uplifting fusion of Jungle beats and classic Reggae sounds akin to a hot cup of tea on a chilly winter day. Irresistible saxophone soars over fast-paced garage-style drums, complimented perfectly by the swooning bass line. Liam Bailey’s vocals float gently atop the production, richly textured and soulful reminding of the likes of Otis Redding, Sam Cooke and Bill Withers.

“More Time” marks a refreshing addition to Crate Classics’ impressive discography, highlighting their knack for creating infectious, genre-blending tracks. The song’s intricate production layers Jungle and Reggae elements, with a soaring saxophone and pulsating rhythms that bring a dynamic energy to the mix. The vocals mesh seamlessly with this rich tapestry of sound, adding a touch of slick elegance that elevates the track.

This release further underpins the duo’s innovative spirit and their ability to push musical boundaries. Known for their work with major artists including Doja Cat, M.I.A, and Mark Ronson and many genre-spanning collaborations, the duo continues to explore new sonic landscapes with “More Time.” Bailey’s powerful voice complements the duo’s bold production choices, resulting in a track that feels both timeless and contemporary. As Crate Classics ventures further into their musical journey, “More Time” stands as a testament to their evolving sound and knack for finding the perfect collaboration.

Having first discovered Crate Classics through their beautiful RnB/Jungle fusion track “Westside” I was immediately hooked on their sound. I will be keenly anticipating new tracks from them and am fascinated to see where they go next. Do yourself a favour and give “More Time” a listen as soon as you can on the streaming platform of your choice, I’m sure you won’t regret it.
