Audiophile By KISS FM’s Charlie Hedges
TOUGH LOVE’s Alex and Stef have been gaining support from DJs and producers across the
industry for their remixing abilities. With their energetic, bassy house sets and remixes for the likes of Le Youth, Clean Bandit and Jess Glynne, these boys are well and truly cemented in the house scene. They’re are also part of the KISS FM family, where I have a Friday and Saturday night house show, as they have their own show on Kiss Fresh (Kiss FM’s sister station). We can expect more great things on their second single too, a remake of a classic hit with R&B legend Ginuwine. A throwback to the 1996 classic, it feels even bigger than the original, sitting nicely amongst the house scene and crossing over into the commercial world. I can’t wait to see what the boys have under their belts the next few months.
ADAM RICKFORS – MIGHTY (DUB MIX)
As part of the sampler album for Cr2’s Ibiza 2015 compilation, Adam Rickfors ‘Mighty’ does what it says on the tin. His progressive sound from Stockholm is acknowledged in this track where you can hear influences from The Prodigy, Daft Punk and The Chemical Brothers, all whom have inspired him over the years. With many of his tracks sitting comfortably in the Beatport Top 10 in the past, I have no doubt ‘Mighty’ will do exactly the same.
LOST FREQUENCIES – ARE YOU WITH ME (CROPPER REMIX)
If it hasn’t earned a place in your music library by now then it certainly should do with Cropper on the remix. Signed to Armada, Lost Frequencies, real name Felix De Laey is a Belgian DJ and producer who made a name for himself with this remix of ‘Are You With Me’ originally by country artist Easton Corbin. The track has been remixed quite a few times since being released but this remix really stands out and is my favourite by a mile.
G R E G O R I K L O S M A N – TELL YOU
Already in good stead for a great 2016, Guru Records label owner Gregori releases ‘Tell You’. A masterpiece with its melodic sections and euphoric breakdowns, it explores the current positioning of house music across many house genres and is definitely one to influence the dancefloors over the next few months. This track is straight up house, locking us into a deep house sound from the offset then moving into a melodic breakdown.
MICHAEL BRUN & DIRTY TWIST – WOO
This is Michael Brun’s latest collaboration with newbies Dirty Twist released on his very own label Kid Coconut Records. Dirty Twist add their fresh new sound to the track bringing their new fresh ears to the scene. This will be their very first label release as duo Dirty Twist. ‘Woo’ is a progressive beast taking the floors by storm, tailor made for main stages all over the world with its lead synths and drums.
