Freestylers feat. Fast Eddie present ‘The Sound’

Freestylers feat. Fast Eddie present 'The Sound'Hey 2014, ’88 called – they want their frequency back! Well, too bad! They ain’t getting it anytime soon because with ‘The Sound’, those incorrigible, irrepressible Freestylers have performed an extreme dawn-of-house-music hijack!

Having already locked down an ironclad club conqueror with January’s drum&bass-fest ‘Falling’, Aston Harvey & Matt Cantor are back to the frontlines in the blink of an eye. Joining the ranks for this ’88 channeling ride is none other than the legendary Acid housemaster himself, Fast Eddie, who fires up with ‘The Sound’ with his infectious microphone ministrations. 

With its acid turning, burning and generally thundering (pushing those PH levels through the roof), the Original Mix of ‘The Sound’ has Freestylers firing the late Eighties sound through the 2014 prism. With future-shocking M1 piano lines, super-hard claps, 808 drum rolls and more tweakin’, peakin’, speaker-freakin’ 303 than is conventionally healthy, they prep the stage for Fast Eddie. With the hip-house master in full lyrical flow, collectively they pull off the one big sonic Jack-attack!

Las Salinas feat. Sue Mclaren ‘Break the Spell’

Las Salinas feat. Sue Mclaren 'Break the Spell'With ‘Say Another What’ (their last outing, alongside Genix), Las SalinasIsrael Bicher and Shaulli Harrari picked up a DJ Mag Single of the Month award and a mass of cross-party deejay support. Their follow-up sees them leave the land of the instrumental and head for pastures altogether more vocal. Having previously cast her lyrical thrall over his ‘We Come Together’ track, label boss Paul van Dyk has put the Tel Aviv-ians together with vocalist Sue McLaren for ‘Break The Spell’.

The ‘Spell’s overture comes loaded with long, held harmonic vocal sweeps, which develop the mellowest types of in-club drama. To that Las Salinas begin to apply symphonic string pressure and dramatic orchestral hits, priming the stage for Sue’s vocals. 

Immersed in elegiac pathos, she drafts both lament and lift into ‘Break This Spell’. Running the full emotional gauntlet, her lyrics bring it the same heartfelt spirit that turned tracks like ‘Sun After Heartbreak’ into modern club classics.

ALEX M.O.R.P.H. & WOODY VAN EYDEN – A NIGHT OUTSIDE

ALEX M.O.R.P.H. & WOODY VAN EYDEN - A NIGHT OUTSIDEAlex M.O.R.P.H. rocked it clean off the grid in 2013, culminating the year with his ‘Magnum’ release for VANDIT (“so tasty you’ll want two of them!” & “seriously annihilating floor-flooring gear” proclaimed MIXMAG!).

Now, for his next strike, he’s putting the old team back together! Of late, Alex has been back twiddling knobs (both studio and turntable) late into the night with clubbing comrade Woody van Eyden. Eagle-eared listeners, who saw them cause all manner of floor uproar at the WMC VANDIT AllStars night during last week, will already have seen ‘A Night Outside’ make the biggest of debut splashes. 

With a coproduction history that stretches back to VANDIT’s ‘Turn It On’ release in 2008, with ‘A Night Outside’ M.O.R.P.H. & Van Eyden may very well have aced the lot!
