Whittyboy releases new music!

Whittyboy is back with a dope EP

              Whittyboy

 

Originally hailing from Leeds, Bingo Bass welcome the currently London-based Wittyboy with a double A-side label debut to blow the winter cobwebs away.

With a background in grime, he gained respect as an MC, featuring on BBC 1Xtra and receiving air play from Mary Anne Hobbs amongst other radio DJ's, before turning his hand to production, remixing for names including Roll Deep, Craig David and Estelle, and receiving support from key figures in the scene such as DJ EZ, DJ Q, Jamie Duggan, Shaun Banger Scott, FB & Zibba and more, which quickly led to him becoming one of the key players in the bassline scene, with regular appearances up and down the country alongside features on compilations and mixes by the Ministry of Sound, Pure Garage, Fabriclive & Pure Bassline.

‘Working With’ and ‘Burning’ are two perfect examples of the uniquely developed sound that Wittyboy has developed over his long and illustrious career, with recent releases through Crucast and Chip Butty Records demonstrating his continued popularity and relevance within the bass music scene in 2018. A truly exciting addition to the label – gunfingers at the ready!

Miguel Alcobia - Say What?

Getting you onto the dance floor in a rush

              Miguel Alcobia

 

Looking for a reason to get into the dancing spirit and release some of the pent up energy you have oozing out of you, then we recommend some ‘Say What’ by Miguel Alcobia. A DJ & Producer who showed us his dope music and believe us when we say, he has a LOT of sick tracks out there ready to get you in the dancing spirit.

Coming with an infectious sound, Miguel has brought Tech House to the table, giving it a bit of a blend with some upbeat sounds and the result is “Say What?” a tune with such a positive vibe that you will not be able to stay still while playing it. Whether it be nodding your head, shaking your hips or just flat out getting jigging in the corridor, you will feel the urge and won’t be able to stop it

The lyrics are easy enough for you to sing along to which is always a plus sign for us and with the beat drops this tune has, you will be building yourself up to drop some moves along with the drops

Sonny Wharton New Release

All Or Nothing Released On Size Records

              Sonny Wharton

 

Sonny Wharton has revealed his hotly anticipated new single ‘All or Nothing’, out now via Steve Angello’s SIZE Records. The track, a follow up to his highly acclaimed SIZE release ‘Vice’, contains a deep rumbling bassline, with slowed vocal samples layered over the brooding chords of the production.

Having established himself as one of the finest producers to emerge from the UK, Sonny kickstarted his music career by winning a mix-tape competition for Renaissance and DJ Mag, which catapulted the British DJ right into the heart of Ibiza’s nightlife, with high profile shows across the Island."

Over the course of his career so far, Sonny has gained strong support from BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Danny Howard, as well as Fatboy Slim, who named Sonny his ‘producer of the year’ in 2012. Not stopping there, Carl Cox handpicked Sonny’s single ‘Raindance’ as his ‘Ibiza Tune Of The Summer’ for Radio 1’s Review Show last year."

Sonny’s skillful ability to captivate the audience with his energetic performances and diverse track selection has seen him take to the decks alongside dance heavyweights Armand Van Helden and Eric Prydz, performing at global venues such as London’s legendary Ministry of Sound and the iconic Glastonbury Festival."

Fresh from a hectic summer schedule which saw Sonny perform at a number of festivals across Europe, notably Beats For Love Festival alongside Fatboy Slim and Sigala, Sonny’s new single ‘All or Nothing’ is not only an aural embodiment of the British DJ’s diverse and dynamic style but also showcases his highly-polished production skills.

Exclusive Interview With Just Us

We Caught Up Exclusively For An Interview With Just Us!

Straight off the back of their latest release 'Flirtatious' we sat down for an exclusive chat to find out more about the track, what's popping for the rest of 2017 and the story behind their colabo!  

              Just Us

The Love You Bring Me” & “Shake It” are tracks by you as individual acts and are both hidden gems. What made you two join forces?

Just Us is a NY duo, Steven Lee formerly Lee Cabrera and Carl Kennedy. We both met early in our careers and have had similar paths to getting there as well. We’ve been like brothers for over a decade and have had some releases together but with how quickly, “Everytime it Rains” and then “Cloudbusting” took off, we knew there was even bigger momentum then ever before. Now we have a good handful of records finished and very excited for the “Flirtatious” release which is in the direction of where we’re at musically and creatively.

Hidden gems… or unforgettable smashes?? “Shake It’ was just licensed to Spinnin for another 10 years and CR2 still releases a remix of it every year and “The Love You Bring Me” and that Fast Eddie sample with Roger Sanchez’s label was Carl’s breakout tune for sure. Carl actually had Lee Cabrera on remix duties for that one. Yeah, we’ve always had similar paths and tastes in music and before meeting, all our mates would tell us we need to get in the studio and do some work together since we were both in NY. We had done a few things together and even toured a bit together, even had the same agent for a bit but now with Just Us, things have obviously gotten a lot more serious and we are both driven to go all the way with this from here on

What was the thought process behind creating ‘Flirtatious’? Both of you have dope tracks respectively. How was creating a track this time around different?

The thought process after “Cloudbusting” was always to get back in the room and create that one wholly original record that we could pivot from after Cloudbusting and while we love that record we also needed to show where we were going musically and Flirtatious is 100% that. We hooked up with ’soon to be’ super-star, “Wolves by Night” who’s a songwriter & as well as an incredible producer and the rest is in the record at this point. The energy with all of us in the studio is contagious and you will most definitely be hearing more music by us and Wolves by Night

James Hypes’ Remix of the track is pretty sick. How did that one come about?

Yeah, we too love James’ mix and we knew his basslines and tough sounding production would sound great on Wolves by Night's super cool/sexy vocal and he provided us with everything and more on that mix. We're playing at Hi Ibiza over the Radio 1 weekend and James is at Ushuaia that week so maybe we'll hook up with him over there. Pete (Tong) actually recommended him on the remix so you can add that to another long list of Pete Tong’s “best ears on the planet” moments!

Tell us about ‘Cloudbusting’ and what happened there? As we heard it, everything was cleared and ready to go…

We need a TV crew and a lot more time if you want to know everything about Cloudbusting and the chaos that went down. It started out as “Everytime it Rains”, then after the cover was OK’d, we had to change the title to Cloudbusting and then we had what felt like the FBI, CIA, FDA, The President & The Queen and everyone else in hot pursuit making sure all our ducks were in a row and staying within the limits of the cover. We were sued and issued cease and desists 3 times in one day on a Friday and before noon (true story). In the end we don’t scare from a little drama or controversy and everyone involved including the label FFRR (but not Kate Bush) wanted a hit record so it definitely makes a great story but I think we all know where the record could have gone but we appreciate how far it went as well.

Is there a chance of resurrecting the track or is it done and dusted in your eyes?

Well we had a really cool video shot in India getting played on some UK video channels but Kate Bush decided she didn't like that either so that's been taken down! There are a couple of really cool remixes from Ryan Blyth and James Bluck out now on Beatport and Traxsource as well as the club mix that started everything, and we're happy with letting those do what they'll do.

Have you any dates lined up and are there any new tracks in the Just Us pipeline?

Lots of dates, putting final touches on our first Just Us tour now, excited to play Hi in Ibiza on August 7. That room as Space was legendary and we had many Live nights there as well so it will be a fun return for sure. The only good thing about changing your name is spending a lot more time in the studio being super creative and creating an air tight game-plan on those releases and seeing it all come to fruition.

‘Hold It’ is certain to set peak-time dance floors alight, thanks to its infectious vocal hook and wonky bassline that instantly lodges itself in the listener’s head.

Tough Love unveil the addictive ‘Like A Drug’, out on 31 March - the first new single from their eagerly awaited debut album, 'Past Present Future’, released in three parts across 2017 on Get Twisted Records

'Like A Drug’ yet again showcases Tough Love’s supreme ability to create infectious, bass-infused anthems. Which is why the track has already gained strong support from some of the biggest names in the business including Oliver Heldens, Huxley, Gorgon City, Don Diablo, David Guetta, Jax Jones, Nervo, Lost Frequencies and many more.

With vocals from a Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling artist, this sets the tone for what we can expect from the London duo’s debut album this year.

Typiclally Tough Love tend to do things with a difference and their debut album is no exception with the album due to be released in three parts, with a new track from each album dropping every four weeks.

Part 1 (Past) is released in March; Part 2 (Present) in May; and Part 3 (Future) in September. The duo will then combine all three parts and include bonus material to release Past Present Future DELUXE in late 2017. Past Present Future Part 1 will feature four of Tough Love’s biggest releases to date: ‘So Freakin’ Tight’ and ‘Pony’, plus ‘Touch’ and ‘Like I Can’.  Part 2 will include the new single, ‘Like A Drug’, alongside three forthcoming singles. Part 3 will include 4 completely new, unreleased tracks.
Tough Love’s record label, Get Twisted Records, has had amazing success since signing an imprint deal with Columbia Records in 2015 featuring releases from Roger Sanchez, Todd Terry, Sandy Riviera, Amine Edge & DANCE, Man Without A Clue, Purple Disco Machine, Full Crate, No Artificial Colours, Hannah Wants, LiTek, Leon Lour & Felon. We expect Get Twisted Records  to only get bigger this year.
