New album and supporting tour from GRiZ

GRiZ just posted a streaming preview of "The Anthem" featuring Mike Avery. It is contemporary funk at it's finest and reminds me a lot of Fort Knox Five. He has a new album out in March called 'Say It Loud'.

GRiZ had a ton of fun making this track. Here are his thoughts on "The Anthem":

"For this record I first went out to New York to record with some of the Daptone Records guys to get the main groove of the tune. Then I had to travel out to Van Nuys to record a children's choir, which was the most nerve racking thing I have done in my entire life! Having a group of 7-11 year olds sing your song is quite the feeling. I finished up the song with Mike Avery in Chicago, and he was one super soulful dude that really captured the golden era funk vibes that I love so much. Overall, this track is a total funk dance party that needs to be enjoyed with friends, preferably in a room full of disco balls.”

GRiZ will be touring all over the U.S. in April and May in support of the new album. Tour dates are:

Milk & Sugar versus Simon Harris

It is hard for me to believe that the Simon Harris hit, "Bass (How Low Can You Go" came out 27 years ago. I've still got the original and some remixes on vinyl. The original was produced with Professor Griff from Public Enemy and includes some classic Chuck D vocals.

This is what Simon Harris had to say about the project: "I have been fans of Milk & Sugar for years so when I heard they were interested in working on ‘Bass (How Low Can You Go)’ it was an honor! We share similar enthusiasm for recording and they are ahead of the curve when it comes to choosing the style of a track. I know ’Bass (How Low Can You Go)’ is in good hands with them.”

Milk & Sugar re-imagined the song giving it a contemporary house sound. The song is set to come out on March 6th, and includes a remix from Doorly. I've got streaming preview clips of the Milk & Sugar version and the Doorly remix:

Milk & Sugar recently remixed the Eddie Amador classic, "House Music". Below is a streaming preview clip. The song can be downloaded by signing up for their mailing list at the link below the clip.

Eddie Richards remixes out now on Storm Recordings

Storm Recordings is Eddie's label, and this EP sees two of his classic tracks re-released and accompanied by remixes from Radio Slave and Jordan Peak. Eddie Richards has been dubbed "Britain's godfather of house and techno" by Mixmag.

The four tracks on the EP are: Dream2 (original re-edit), Dream2 (Radio Slave remix), iMove (original mix) and iMove (Jordan Peak's Rogue rework).

The original version of Dream2 is a great classic techno track (some may call it tech house now). The Radio Slave remix is a chugging extended version with more of a minimal feel to it - this one is great for late night sets and clocks in at over 10 minutes long. The original version of iMove is another great classic techno track. The Jordan Peak remix is a high energy, peak time techno banger.

Check out streaming clips of all four songs below:
