On November 3rd, 2003 V2 Records releases the first single from Nitin Sawhney’s critically-acclaimed album “Human.” "Rainfall" features 21 year old Taio on vocals, who is fast becoming one of the record industry’s most sought-after British soul talents following his recent tour appearances with Sawhney.
The video features Taio, Nitin, and a troupe of breakdancers against a grafittied urban space in London. Rishi Rich's remix audio lends the video a hint of desi funk, all under the soulful falling of rain.
The Album version of "Rainfall" is a beautiful R&B classic showcasing an exceptional voice and wonderful songwriting.
The remix package features interpretations by some of London’s true innovators in music production, with Wookie (Whitney Houston, Soul II Soul, Brandy), Rishi Rich (Mary J Blige, Craig David, and Misteeq), and Bugz in the Attic delivering mixes that are guaranteed to rip the dancefloors and airwaves to shreds.
Rodney P (formerly of the London Posse and now of his own Riddim Killa Records, and a true leader in the British hip-hop community) also lends his lyrics and killer delivery to the “Rainfall Remixes.”
The Rishi Rich Remix, with its floor-thumping desi beats has already received plays at Choice FM (London) and Radio One’s Bobby & Nihal show, while Wookie’s urban and soulful Sunshine Remix is poised to take over the UK's R&B scene in the next few weeks.
