Upcoming Release: Bond – L-Nize (ft. Mark Asari)
After the successful release of his debut single, Blowin My Mind featuring Qwote, producer Dj L-NIZE is on the verge of dropping his new track Bond.
Instead of following the current trend for creating house remixes of classic R&B hits, new single Bond offers a refreshing alternative: Originally written lyrics and vocal melodies. L-NIZE not only produced Bond, but also wrote the lyrics. The result is a bass-heavy house beat blended with soulful vocals which give the track an R&B touch.
A fat, grooving, synth-bassline is the perfect playground for uber-talented vocalist Mark Asari, who assists on the track. London-based singer Mark Asari is best known for contributing the vocals on the UK Top 20 Hit Revive (Say Something) in a collaboration with LuvBug.
Bond is available on iTunes from 31st July
Song of the Day: You Don’t Know – The Beat Corporation (ft.Natasha Sky & Alison Bethune)
Today’s song is You Don’t Know by UK-based dance duo THE BEAT CORPORATION.
THE BEAT CORPORATION is a group of artists that came together to create music with no limitations. Based in Manchester UK, Tyler Daley & Jody ‘Jodz’ Spence are both established producers & songwriters in their own right and share a common goal which is to make House and Garage inspired club music.
The boys came to prominence when their track Elevation was played in a Disclosure & Zed Bias back to back at Warehouse in Manchester. Their biggest profile remixes are for Roy Davis Jr, Omar, Zed Bias, Ghetto n MC Nasty and more. Continuing their incredible progression, THE BEAT CORPORATION have been confirmed to play at the Glastonbury festival in Bez’s Acid House tent.
Now I’ve brought you up to speed on these guys – now have a listen to You Don’t Know. This is a DOPE cover of the classic RnB record by 702, originally released in 1999 & became a dancefloor smash in the UK Garage 2step scene shortly after. The 2014 cover features vocalists Alison Bethune & Natasha Sky, whom the Beat Corp both met locally in Manchester. Alison Bethune has been involved in various tracks across different genres, with her vocal often described as soulful and sultry. Natasha Sky is a 22year old singer-songwriter from Manchester. She is in the process of recording her first album which features well known musicians such as Aziz Ibrahim from the Stone Roses & Simply Red.
Lending itself to the current UK House invasion, You Don’t Know promises to be in every DJ’s box in time for the summer, with a powerful remix package to follow soon.
