Description

The Journey Men alongside vocalist supremo Mike City get things underway with ‘For the Culture’. The duo has built a notable following through their distinct deep & bumpy soulful DJ sets, a sound which they effortlessly carry through to their own productions. ‘For the Culture’ is pure uplifting & inspiring house music with Mike City’s true & heartfelt vocals explaining quite clearly the love & passion connected with what they do.

Black Sonix ‘Danny’s Jam’ (a nod to Danny J Lewis) takes things on a slightly deeper route, using hooky chords & killer bouncing basslines to create somethings rather special – it’s pure energy from the off yet still with that soulful touch & has been an ever present (and much sought after) track in a few A-listers DJ sets over the past couple of years; finally, the secret is out!

Refusing to be outdone on his own label Sean’s ‘Wanna Be Good’ is packed with all the qualities you’ve come to expect from a no-nonsense McCabe Dub! Just enough vocal in there to keep you on your toes with a slick analogue bass & rampant chord hook to keep you right in the centre of the dancefloor. It’s another one of those closely guarded secret weapons that has had people running to the booth.

Wrapping thing up is ‘My Way’ a debut original collaboration between Sean McCabe & Dave Jones as Motion Severn (called that due to the Severn Bridge which separates where the pair live). Dave & Sean’s relationship stretches back to 2000 where Dave actually offered Sean his first DJ gigs, so this coming-together as a production duo has been a long time coming. Paying homage to their shared love of the classic Strictly Rhythm & Red Zone Dub sounds, their work here recreates & reimagines that classic era of house music but for a new generation to enjoy, something recently shown through their remix of Solution’s ‘Was It Just a Game’ (also on GVM).
