For those who are unknown to Jimmy Napes, he’s the man who has just won 4 Grammy Awards for his work with Sam Smith; he’s also the man behind the successes of Disclosure, Mary J. Blige and Clean Bandit. However, recently Napes has turned his attention on to his solo project which is, rather unsurprisingly, also turning out to be a success. Out on Method Records, ‘Making Of Me’ has all the attributes of a hit song with it being both commercially viable but also pleasing to the blogosphere. It features an omnipresent glossiness with the pop-focussed vocal registers you’d come to expect from producers and writers who have clearly been in the game for quite sometime. This is an excellent record, but it’s not his best – give ‘Give It Up‘ a listen.
