Got my hands on the promo this week; gotta love house! Solid tracks but my favorites are the Latin summer flavor of the Guti Rmx and the deep David K Rmx. The And.ID Rmx twists into some dark tech-house grooves… Killer! Some good stuff here, all the mixes are strong but unique and the vox of Roland Clark really work with the vibe. Stay Tuned: Release Date 25 Oct 2010.
VIVa MUSiC delivers another example of why it is a leading light for all things underground, this time with label manager Steve Lawler releasing an EP that epitomises his vision for quality electronic productions. Featuring on ‘Gimme Some More’ is house music’s laureate Roland Clark, who is on hand to add his signature deep soulful vocals to Lawler’s erotic beats.
The original mix sees Lawler stay true to the groove, with a warm base-line driving a signature arrangement of drums that intertwine perfectly to create a platform for Clark to deliver a paean to the music he obviously loves dearly. His deep harmony invites the listener to delve deep into the music he holds so close to his heart. The rhythmic chant of ‘Gimme Some More’ demands Lawler to open his musical psyche further so listeners can fully lose themselves.
The EP also comprises remixes from a variety of underground house and techno artists whom Steve shares a synergy with. VIVa stalwarts Audiofly are on hand with a remix and a dub version, whilst fellow VIVa wizards Mendo and David K also give their take on the track. The EP is rounded off with And.ID and Guti remixes that complete a truly breathtaking package.
