Yes, yes we know, but for the purposes of this particular page we are not focusing on the title track, it’s the b-side ‘Tomorrow’ (feat Raheem DeVaughn) that we’re most interested in. There’s nothing complicated about it, nothing clever, nothing groundbreaking either for that matter. It’s just a beautiful, uplifting track moored around a simple piano hook, slo-mo hip-hop beats and DeVaughn’s super-soulful, spirited vocal.
Re-Style is on fire this year with one killer collaboration EP under his belt already. This next track sees him teaming up with the Masters of Hardcore legend Bass-D. It hits a great balance of upfront and fresh style, and old skool influence. Bouncy rap vocals, a progressive trancey melody and pounding 909 kicks are going to make this one a peak set monster for many hardcore DJs the world over in the coming months.
Playaz manage to keep experimenting, to keep pushing on forward and yet manage to retain that Playaz sound. This juggling act must be intense — how to break boundaries but stay true to your sound? Astounding! ‘Very Exciting’ is very dancefloor, bouncy and bubbly — it’s got a real sense of fun, but also the classic Playaz tinge of darkness. The beat's a stepper and the synths are wobbly, giving you a torrent of shapes to throw on the floor.
The Frenchman has always surprised with an ever-changing style — from house, to disco to new wave and curious pop — and this new single release continues Joakim’s vital and brilliantly original style. ‘Bring Your Love’ is a collaboration with The Rapture's Luke Jenner, realising new experiments with late '80s-style pop music. If this wasn’t enough, then there are some excellent remixes from the likes of Young Marco, Sam Tiba and Cut Hands’ William Bennett, with a superb Liquid Liquid pastiche.
