So I’m home a bit earlier than usual and chilling out in the March sunshine with a beer. A press release pops through, and I crack open the link. First impressions are good, I have a soundcloud link I can instantly access instead of having to download and extract some next ZIP file!
We know, simply from the sheer number of promos we get from new labels, how tricky the first release is, but for Diamond & Raw, this sounds more like their 200th. Acutely polished, the production quality seeps through every beat and the vocal talent is delicious.
The track is given an African flavour makeover courtesy of Auntie Flo for the first remix, whilst Gullfisk reels in the energy and replaces it with a deep, soulful, chilled out vibe for the second. It’s a track that is as effortlessly cool as the moment I’m currently in.
So all you beach front bars up and down the UK, or anywhere, if you’re looking for a summer soundtrack, you could do significantly worse.
