Hannah Wants & Jamie George - Butterflies (Hybrid Theory Remix)Hannah Wants & Jamie George brought us the original heady bounding sub-bass vocal track ‘Butterflies’ in September 2013 (Rinse Recordings).

Hybrid Theory (Four40 Records) reworks the once tense gritty bass anthem with smooth musicality and slick garage grooves over the top of crisp four to the floor drum patterns and percussion. Jamie George’s pitched down vocal throughout creates a dark soulful presence, and with the use of cool melodic synths and stabs, the track is transformed into an uplifting big room banger while still maintaining its original underground essence.
Hybrid Theorys remix, (which was originally made only as a one off for Jamie and Hannah Wants) was first previewed as part of Jamie Georges “Ones2Watch” mix for Urban Nerds, but with the great feedback received on the track, Jamie and Hybrid Theory only saw it fit to give it away as an exclusive free download to you.

BIZARRE INC-PRESS SHOT

Legendary British label, Vinyl Solution, celebrates its 25th anniversary this year by making its entire back catalogue available digitally for the first time. The anniversary is spearheaded by the re-release of Bizarre Inc’s game-changing rave classic ‘Playing With Knives’.

Released on 28 July (impact date 2 September), the much-loved clubbing anthem has been reworked by Utah Saints,Drumsound & Bassline SmithTimothy Allan & Mark Loverush, and Magnus J, who are helping to introduce the track to a whole new generation of electronic music fans.

Vinyl Solution was founded by J. Saul Kane of Depth Charge (also the label’s A&R), Alain De La Mata and Yves Guillemot, boss of the Vinyl Solution record shop on Portobello Road. The Notting Hill based label hit initial success with actsDepth Charge, Eon & Rio Rhythm Band and beyond, regularly topping the indie charts, before Bizarre Inc’s ‘Playing With Knives’ became an instant rave anthem. Renowned for signing unconventional bands from an array of uncompromising genres, other notable artists on the label included Stupids, pioneering Britcore rappers, Gunshot, The Senseless Things, Subject 13 and Jon Roca aka Midi Rain.

Bizarre Inc was initially formed by Dean Meredith and Mark Archer in Stafford in 1989. Archer moved on to form truck-stop rave kings Altern 8, and Dean was then joined by DJ/producers, Andrew Meecham and Carl Turner‘Playing With Knives’was originally released in 1991 but, like many tracks of the time, it was a club anthem but didn’t initially chart, it eventually reached No.4 when it was reissued after the chart success of their follow-up ‘Such A Feeling’. A subsequent single, ‘I’m Gonna Get You’, reached No.2 the following year followed by their debut album ‘Energique’.

Utah Saints, were the “first true stadium house band” to sell over 2 million records in the 1990’s. They returned to the Top 10 in 2008 with ‘Something Good 08’ before scoring another chart hit in 2011 with ‘What Can You Do For Me’, a collaboration with Drumsound & Bassline Smith. Radio 1 mainstays, Drumsound & Bassline Smith, provide the drum & bass remix on‘Playing with Knives’, their ‘Through The Night’ charted in the Top 40 and the new artist album is release later this year.Loverush is one half of progressive house duo Loverush UK and has remixed More Kante ‘Yeke Yeke’Morgan Page & Nadia Ali, JES, Kylie and MobyMagnus J provides the deep house mix.

Self Fish “Another”

SELFISH ANOTHERSF based music and production crew MalLabel is proud to import this latest release from the cutting edge musical duo Self Fish – “Another.” Russian natives Nikolay Denisov (Nik) and Daria Mutovkina (Dasha) live over 100 miles apart and have never met face to face but joined forces over the internet o create an entity with a spirit of its own. With this, their 2nd EP, they take their lyrically infused dubs to a new deep and otherworldly level.

Once again Self Fish showcases their range and ability to keep dark music on the lighter side. “Another” is well balanced… Heavy in bass but sweet in nature. Both Nik and Dasha agree that groove and harmony are the most important elements of music and this clearly shines through in their production. The duo doesn’t ascribe to any genre limitations, keeping their tracks innovative and dynamic.

Soulful seductive female vocals are echoed by haunting synthetic robot growls. A cloudy sonic dreamscape is woven together with energetic and intricate rhythms. Alluring and ethereal yet driven with aggressive beats, this new album cleverly blends dubstep with elements of UK Garage and ambient 2-step… “Another” unlocks the dark and mysterious and carves grooves into the uplifting.
