All twerking and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Well, saying that, this is actually quite fun, if a little disposable.
Andy Whitby’s HARD brand has been the leading new hard house brand in 2014, with events across the UK as well as albums and of course his ever-popular monthly HARDkast. This debut release on his HARD label sees Andy team up with UK No.1 producer Technikal for a high energy hard house monster, with great rap vocal, bouncy bassline and sharp UK percussive drive.
"One of the most creative and individual performers on the scene at the moment. Every time Mo plays me a beat it makes me want to write, and seeing him perform live is a glimpse into how in the moment his creative process is."
Berlin-based Thoughtless Music is a house and techno label that isn’t afraid to flirt with a little bit of melody, and ‘Freaks Back’ is a tech house record that’s drenched with it; though its real charm comes from the mysterious, otherworldly vibe that Beeston and Numan manage to summon in the studio. While its stark percussion and electro bassline bring a certain harshness, it’s dominated by a haunting psychedelia that gives the record a certain dash of classic progressive house. Also check the turbo-charged remix from Emerson Todd.
