‘Dancing Machine’ is an amazing re-arrangement of a Motown classic. Starting mellow with a simple  synth line, the track gives space for an introduction to a captivating vocal performance by Laura Mvula. Naughty Boy’s production provides a slightly melancholic edge while maintaining the energy level of the original track, instantly giving this 70s classic a catchy modern feel.

Of the project, Naughty Boy said: “Motown is so iconic, at first I didn’t want to interfere in case I upset the millions of Motown fans. It took me a while to think I can do this, I can deliver. I realised it’s the coming together of music lovers and great songs.”

Speaking of the track, Laura Mvula said: “ ‘Dancing Machine’ has always been one of my favourite Jackson 5 tracks so when Shah said he was doing an album of reworked Motown classics it was my first thought. I grew up listening to and emulating the Jackson 5 so to get a chance to re-interpret and pay respect to some of that genius was really special. Motown deserves endless credit so hopefully this will highlight the incredible catalogue.
