Audiophile: Kiss FM’s Charlie Hedges
I caught up with Sonny last week on the phone who was over the moon to be named the man behind the new Defected in The House Mix CD; the gig came about because he was on the plane with the Defected label owner who was casually chatting to him and then said ‘how do you fancy mixing the next one.’ Very humble and with a great year ahead, Australian DJ/ producer Sonny Fodera has also just released his ‘In The House’ Sampler boasting two original tracks – ‘Shake’ and ‘Go Get It’ – and a mash-up of Mystic Bill’s ‘Invisible’. He is arguably one of the most exciting house producers to look out for this year.
FRANKY RIZARDO FT TESS LEAH – COME INTO MY LIFE
Signed to Black Simma Records this is not only my favourite track at the minute but quite possibly my favourite remix of an 80’s classic ever! Revamping the 1987 Joyce Sims ‘Come Into My Life,’ Netherlands producer and DJ Franky Rizardo is set for a hit and is definitely one to watch in 2016.
99 SOULS – GIRL IS MINE (DANNY HOWARD REMIX)
It’s one thing getting the likes of Pete Tong to support your tracks but when one of the members of the original group does too you know you’re onto a winner. 99 Souls take on a Brandy and Monica anthem here making it a credible club and radio track. 99 Souls took it upon themselves at the end of 2014 to self-promote their debut single and with the help and support from massive DJs and reaching #1 in the Shazam Chart it was only a matter of time before the guys got signed.
KAY SILVA – SUBMISSION
After a busy 2015 of gigs and making and testing out some new material, Kay Silva shows us exactly what this UK tech and house producer/DJ is all about. Kay is definitely one to look out for this year .
GOING DEEPER & SHVEZ – MAKE IT RIGHT
Joe’s first single that crossed over onto the airwaves sampled the vocals of Montel Jordan with ‘This Is How We Do It’ and playing again with the 90’s sound, he manages to bring it up to date alongside the current house music sound. This track has already had lots of support from the likes of Oliver Heldens, Don Diablo and Nicky Romero so looks set to be a hit for sure!
PAUL HARRIS FT ANGEL MORAES – TURN IT UP
Former ‘Dirty Vegas’ member Paul Harris returns with Turn It Up. Paul, if you guys didn’t already know, has a Grammy award under his belt for best dance album with his former group and has been given a number of accolades with his solo projects too. His new single also showcases the sounds of one of the best DJs and underground producers of today ‘Angel Morales’ which shows the collaboration producing a dark underground track.
