Her productions are similarly gung-ho, tackling disco classics ("Stand On The Word," on 2012's "Exodus") and acid house anthems (2013's "We Still Believe" references Adonis's "No Way Back"). But where her DJ sets deploy canonical greats with style and pinpoint accuracy, Stamper's aim as a producer isn't always so true. "He Is The Voice I Hear" is dedicated to a string of disco legends—Larry Levan, Walter Gibbons, Loleatta Holloway—and it revives the style in its most melodramatic form. There's a sweeping, sentimental piano intro and swelling strings throughout; the track's spine is a Moroder-like synth bassline. It's all bound together with an ear for a hook, mostly concentrated on the moment, after three and a half minutes, when the left hand of the piano starts to walk.
But in the end, "He Is The Voice I Hear" falls between two zones. It lacks the lavishness of a period-faithful homage, but the broad-brushstrokes arrangement offers little fresh insight on these familiar elements. The strings sound flat and the drums kind of thin. The structure is marred by clunky moments, like the harmonic detour shortly before the six-minute mark and the shrill closing piano solo. Regardless, Stamper will no doubt make this track a highlight of her sets—she's done much more with less. Outside of that context, it's hard to hear her singular magic in it.
