Surfing Leons and rapper Miss Eaves track ‘Banga’ mixes hip hop with electro and then on top of that gets a remix treatment from Sinden who adds in industrial sounding drums and gives it a bass booty shakin’ re-workin’. Out now on Forma.T Records.
Released today on George Fitzgerald’s ManMakeMusic label is the Laszlo Dancehall EP, a project between two producers: Leon Vynehall and Christian Piers. The EP is the eighth release from the label and features 3 tracks that capture the exciting sound of the current underground house scene. ‘Gave Up’ may be familiar to those of you who tuned into GFitzG’s Essential Mix for Radio 1 – with jumping beats, uplifting melody and catchy vocal hooks it’s got us bouncing about the place. The flip side see’s tracks ‘Ain’t No Time’ (a more classic, club focused banger) and ‘Manley Harrison’ (with sounds of bongo’s, jazzy vocals and a distorted, pulsating sample at its heart). Stream below.
We can’t get enough of this one. Guaff!
On Thursday we were invited down to Shoreditch for the label launch party of Chormoza Recordings. With upcoming releases in the deep/disco/garage side of house, their sound is right up our street. We met up with label owners Zoe and Justin and enjoyed sets from the Chromoza DJs, including 21 year old Stranger and special guest D Ramirez. The party was banging and everyone was having a damn good time.
Zoe and Justin were understandably buzzing and it was great to see how passionate they both were about their new project together. Having already signed a few DJs to their digital label (Stranger, Thorsten Last and Paradise 45) the couple have a number of further releases schedule for the near future.
The first Chromoza release was scheduled with the label launch and comes from Stranger in the form of his two track EP ‘You Feel This’. Featuring ‘Move Your Body’ (with a deep melody and catchy vocal sample) and ‘You Feel This’ (a moody, bassier sound) which you can stream below.
We’re excited to see how Chromoza develops and you’ll be sure to hear more about their releases from us in the future. Check out their soundcloud and if you’re a producer that thinks your sound fits with the label then get in touch with them here.
Dusky’s new release is a deep disco-tinged tune with an old skool vibe and dance floor filling credentials. Out early June.
This is the first we’ve heard of Grum and the first single to be taken from his forthcoming album ‘Human Touch’. There’s a number of remixes to go with it and it’s the Andre Crom remix that’s taken our fancy – bringing the track a little more underground with some heavier bass. Stream below.
