Steve Lawler – ‘Crazy Dream’ + Remixes

For his next release, well-respected DJ, producer and label owner Steve Lawler joins forces with Turbo Recordings for the first time. Titled ‘Crazy Dream’, the single will be released with three remixes from Charlotte de Witte, DJs Parejas and Jori Hulkkonen on the 16th June.

Making the record specifically with Turbo in mind, ‘Crazy Dream’ is a 5 minute journey filled with a jacking rhythm, staccato high-hats and hypnotic, poetic vocals. Creating an acid-infused trip, ‘Crazy Dream’ is an upbeat track perfect for peaktime sets.

For the remixes, Turbo enlisted a diverse cast of their label All-Stars to spin it into a release that was for everyone, giving the party people what they want. Belgium’s Charlotte de Witte turns ‘Crazy Dream’ into a dub techno affair with spacey synths and loopy chords whilst DJs Parejas focuses on crashing snares and a melodic groove. Lastly, Jori Hulkkonen’s draws from the acid elements, putting emphasis on the 303-sound and adding a razor-like bassline.

This summer, the world-renowned DJ will be returning to the old Space venue for unmissable Hï Ibiza residency at ‘In The Dark’ with Luciano & Kolsch among others. Alongside this, Steve will be bringing his Warriors party back to Sankeys for two exclusive parties across the season, with the first on the 31st May.

Jax Jones – Instruction ft. Demi Lovato, Stefflon Don

South London multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer Jax Jones is riding high following the worldwide success of smash single ‘You Don’t Know Me’ featuring BBC Sound of 2017 nominee and future star Raye, and looks set to continue his winning streak with his brand new single ‘Instruction’. ‘Nothing says summer to me more than Notting Hill Carnival,’ Jax says of his new single. ‘That was the mental image I used throughout the making of this song. I took the idea to my good friend MNEK and the song came together really quickly. The DJ is the controller of the dance floor and lyrically, I wanted to reflect that; hence why we’re giving instructions!

Enlisting global pop star Demi Lovato and the UK’s fiercest MC Stefflon Don ‘Instruction’ is an empowering percussion led call to the dancefloor. ‘B*tch I don’t need introduction’ Lovato snaps, whilst Steff delivers fiery ‘bad gal’ bars that leave you in no double, she really is the Don. ‘I wanted to continue where I left off with ‘You Don’t Know Me’, Jax explains. ‘We knew we needed someone with a certain level of swag and confidence to pull off a song like this so we sent it to Demi Lovato to see if she was interested. I thought it was a long shot but she loved the record and delivered us all the right feels in the vocal. Stefflon Don is one of the most exciting new rappers to come out of the UK today, so getting her on a song with a pop superstar like Demi is a defining moment for me as a fan of music. I love clashing genres together. It’s one of those collaborations which is as exciting on paper as it sounds on record. I can’t wait to play this song at my festival shows this summer!”

‘You Don’t Know Me’, a sassy rebuff to fake friends, has had over 275 million combined global streams and gone 3 x Platinum in The Netherlands, 2 x Platinum in Australia, Ireland, Sweden, Platinum in Norway, UK, Italy and
Gold in Belgium, France, Germany,with over 6.3m total Shazams hitting the #1 spot on Shazam globally, making it Jax’s biggest hit to date.

Jax’s music is rooted inthe hip hop, grime and house music he was surrounded by in his teenage years. These influences come through both in the studio and in his wild live sets – most recently in his sold out ‘House Work’ UK tour –where he helms all the instruments himself, layering them upon beats and bass for a fresh, modern take on an old school sound.

Prior to ‘You Don’t Know Me’ his biggest success to date had been as the writer and co-producer on Duke Dumont’s huge international 2014 hit ‘I Got U’, which resulted in his first UK No.1 in addition to nominations on both sides of the Atlantic, at the BRIT and Grammy Awards. As well as producing Duke’s following two singles,he has remixed the likes of Charli XCX, Lil Yachty, Missy Elliot and Pharrell.

Jax has a very busy summer ahead of him with appearances at Capital’s Summertime Ball, Tomorrowland,Reading & Leeds, Boardmasters, Ushuaia and Pacha to name just a few – head to http://www.jaxjones.co.uk for full details.

Nic Fanciulli Wrong (Feat. Agoria & JAW)

Nic Fanciulli is a name synonymous with electronic music culture. As part of the generation of DJs that were formative of the revolution of dance music in Ibiza, Nic’s career has spanned two decades at the forefront of the UK underground scenes. ‘My Heart’, Nic’s debut album is an amalgamation of these experiences and passions. Set for release on the 20th October, ‘My Heart’ has been an open, creative space where Nic set out to delve into new and experimental soundscapes.

Over the course of the 15-track LP, Fanciulli explores a variety of musical landscapes,moods and emotions. ‘My Heart’ presents club-ready tracks offset with more downtempo tracks for the home-listener.

« The conception of the album started ten years ago and there’s probably been around 300 records written in that time. I’ve spent so much time and effort making this album that it’s essentially become a part of me, it has become my heart and my soul” – Nic Fanciulli

Collaboration has been a recurrent theme throughout Nic’s career and ‘My Heart’ is an illustrious presentation of guest collaborators. Nic’s first track from the album is ‘Wrong’, featuring long-time friend Agoria and electro vocalist JAW. ‘Wrong’ is Nic’s first original production to drop following his remixes of Jamie XX and Gorillaz. ‘Wrong’ is a showcase of Nic’s signature deep sound offset with JAW’s soaring vocals.
