SHIR KHAN - SECRET GOLD 07 + METRONOMY - I'M AQUARIUS (CLAPTONE REMIX)

Shir Khan is back with another impressive collection on his Exploited Label. Hear label mainstays and newcomers get to mix it up . Making for a very impressive array of beats. 4 tracks that have a DJ's set in sight will tie in very snugly to today's underground sound.
It hasn't been but a short while since Volume 6 was released and is still making chart appearances from top player DJ's. I expect these beats to roll on the success of that keeping Shir Khan label in the spotlight.
Producing and releasing prolifically is the current game of Exploited with them never dropping the standard and always expanding the vision the label shares with the world.


The four tracks received this Press right up 

1. About GIVE IT TO ME by PJU 
Whilst out clubbing one night in London PJU bumped into London DJ & club host Josh Caffe and Cedric of Azari & lll. Before long they all ended up at an after party. They talked to Josh about singing on this track they had been working on which was inspired by this classic Chicago house track called 'Donnie' by this obscure act 'The It'. 
Josh jumped on the idea. Said & done, whilst in PJU's west London studio recording Josh's exhilarating vocal, PJU played Josh the 'Donnie' track which had this haunting soulful vocal which they discovered was by a certain Mr Robert Owens. Josh flipped and said he's good friends with Mr Owens, let's get him on the track!! A month later Robert Owens was in the PJU studio. He delivered, on the spot, exactly what the track needed. The result is the track "Give It To Me" now featured as the first song on Exploited Records Secret Gold Compilation Vol 6. 


2. About BODY TROUBLE by ANTILOPE 
Handling softnesses with the delights until the delirious rhythms shocks, 
the reflection of a tainted essence of sincerity and devotion, Belgian Antilope finds inspiration in a changing reality, with the will to reveal one ounce, even infinite, of hope and unity. 


3. About EVERYTHINGS A DREAM by KEVIN MCKAY 
While exchanging remixfiles for his act Mia Dora for an upcoming Exploited Release by Human Life & Anabel Englund, Kevin (the man from Glasgow Underground) got in touch and sent through some of his original material. 'Everythings A Dream' got immediately signed by Shir Khan. 

4. About GUNNA GIVE U by WILL CLARKE 
Will Clarke just got back from a tour in Australia and this track always turned heads down with a large response from the punters: With the first drop being quite a four to the floor chugger to the break down having a more euphoric feel with the pitched vocals and organs. "


 


Seen as ADE2014 has just been we should also pass on the thanks from the label as they seemed to have a blast having a night where they rocked the floor . Giving something back from the Producers to the dancers...  










If that wasnt ebnough we have a look at what is ready to drop next week

Press Words
"We had the honour to have one of our favourite acts remixed by Exploited mainstay Claptone. The Original Version of 'I'm Aquarius' can be found on Metronomy's recent album 'Love Letters' and is a cocktail of lo-fi synths and clipped, nocturnal rhythms. Now Claptone added some of his magic which brought us to this catchy result made to be played out in the clubs. With friendly permission from Because Music." 
Artist: Metronomy
Release: I'm Aquarius (Claptone Remix)
Label: Exploited
Releasedate: 24.10.14 (Beatport Only)
 

Light Year - Never Know 

One not to be missed as well that touched down earlier this month  .....
 Hailing from the sunny side of Sydney we have 2 tracks that again flaunt the quality that Shir Khan delivers to the scene... Grab this at beatport now.
Light Year has been honing his skills towards a full Exploited release later this year .... 
Smooth gliding basslines that will pick you up and make you drift along on it's light fandango. With an almost Disco vibe it crosses the boundaries of genre making just one solid track .. JXP makes a turn for the late night session with a more gritty and city styled old skool vibe .. I'm sure this version will get some heavy weight support ... Have a look who is already dropping this .

URULU - Banshee Boardwalk EP‏ - SHabby Doll Records- SHB15


Welcome Shabby Doll Records.. Had my eye and ear on this label for a while now, since they started dropping nuggets from legendary scene player Nail. Coming from one of the great strong holds for forward thinking house music Sheffield has and I'm sure will in the future keep delivering quality sounds .
Making a splash on this upcoming release we have Urulu ... with an ep titled Banshee Boardwalk 

Label - Shabby Doll Records
Artist - Urulu
Release - Banshee Boardwalk EP
Catalogue - SHB015




The title track starts off with old school kicks developing in to a warm lush analogue sounds journey. The deep pulsating bass kicks and swoops lock the vintage outlook right in the center of today's dance floor. Storming track either set for late night after hours session or early morning shuffles as the light of day breaks over an outdoor party some where in the East Midlands. Next we have Heaven Unlimited rapid snares that entice you in to the developing sounds. Couple that with the energetic vocal snippet and you have a peak time winner. Classic at heart dirty and fresh all in the same mouth full under the hood .. Just get that playing its smoking ! For the 3rd original we have Before Hand Man which features more of that late night sound. Dirty and dark the beats slink in to the fast lane as the tune develops. This tune has label friend James Welsh step up the pressure making the kicks drop right on to you and the escalating bassline take you higher and higher. After James earlier release you can see why Matt has asked him back for more.
No preview on Soundcloud as of yet so i'll add the label in general as this will constantly get updated why it is ...
Time to dig a little deeper and see what other info on past releases we can share .. Help get your head on when it comes to Shabby Doll Records ... !!! Not to be missed .. Underground house at it's best

Artist: Jay Lumen
Title: The Reason
Label: OFF Spin
Release number: OFFSPIN027
Format: Digital / Vinyl
Distribution: Baseware Distribution (Digital) / Deejay.de (Vinyl)
Releasedate: 13.10.2014 (Digital) / 2014 (Vinyl)
Web: www.off-recordings.com
Tracks:
1. Jay Lumen – The Reason (Original Space Shaker Mix)
2. Jay Lumen – Flawless Fever
3. Jay Lumen - The Reason (Take Me Back To Chicago Mix)
"It's no secret that Jay Lumen is a top name when it comes to storming the sales charts. His tracks seem to be the choice of a multitude of djs all over the globe and his last release in OFFSPIN wasn't an exception. We couldn't wait to get a sequel from him and here he delivers an amazing set of dancefloor bombs well worth the wait.
"The Reason" starts the party working his trademark house groove with a fat bassline and suggestive speech vocals. Synth stabs and strings complete all the elements for a crowd favourite, as always the breakdown drives intensity up a notch too. This gem comes in two versions, adding a "Take Me Back To Chicago" remix where Jack does his trick. Dirty 909 chicago beats, big synth bass and a whole vibe that will take you back to the golden days of the windy city's sound.

"Flawless Fever" gets deeper into tech house territory with a pulsating techno bass and mind bending synth arpeggios and arrangements to lead the track into another huge breakdown, indeed another peak house monster from Jay.
We are very happy to have him back as OFFSPIN continues to grow as a dj favourite on its own right."

Deep Sound Express ft. Raha - Closer - Pole Position Recordings

Deep Sound Express deliver alongside awesome vocalist Raha a slinky Nu Disco bomb for Cardiff Pole Position Recordings. Infectious and slinky are words that come to mind when you are carried along on the sweet 118bpm. Very reminiscent of Crazy P . Just the sort of thing i like to start a set with .. Offering a solid building block for any house DJ.
Pole Position Press Words 
"We are delighted to welcome Deep Sound Express and vocalist Raha back to Pole Position Recordings for a second time. Their first offering ”After Rain” was a big success on the Nu Disco circuit and we have no doubt “Closer” will have a similar impact in the deeper House realms. After featuring on a recent sell-out 12” on our sister label Pole Jam Vinyl, getting heavyweight support from the likes of Aeroplane and Satin Jackets, this marks the digital bow for “Closer”. With Raha's powerful vocal performance, Deep Sound Express's trademark catchy keys and polished production makes “Closer” more than strong enough to stand up for itself as a very special single track release."
