Artist: Fatboy Slim
Release: Uptown Funk
Label: Southern Fried Records
This is absolutely huge. If you wanted a club version of the massive Uptown Funk – then you can count on Fatboy Slim and Southern Fried Records to deliver the goods. This smash is a collaboration between Fatboy himself & Jerome Robins, and Norm then asked Idris Elba to do the vocal. It’s without doubt a club bomb you’ll be hearing a lot this summer!
This brand new cut will also feature on ‘The Fatboy Slim Collection, out May 25th; a new compilation album featuring Fatboy Slim’s personal selection of the most seminal dance and electronic floor fillers of all time, including classic tracks by the man himself. The track is available as an instant grat on the album pre-order from Sunday 10th May.
Born and raised in Stockholm, Andreas strove to become a professional ice hockey player before realising that music was the only route for him.“I grew up in a southern suburb called Skogås with a hockey stick in my hand.” Andreas recalls. “I remember how my dad used to play me his favourite records and show me his Gibson Les Paul. But it wasn’t until I was fifteen I understood that I wanted to do music for a living. I started writing songs and melodies straight away, as if they’d always been inside of me all this time”.
New London imprint Fancy Human is the collective of Leigh Morgan, Rob King and Tom Coulling. The labels first release, ‘Made in Jupiter’ is a fusion of deep hypnotic and discofied house grooves.
Leigh has been involved in the deep house scene for over 15 years, having A&R’d and run the widely respected Urban Torque imprint since its inception in 2001, and also compiling the popular Urban Torque Transmissions Radio Show, now in to its ninth year. Rob and Tom, life long friends since training as musicians in their teens, have been working together as Lucatwana for the past two years with some initial output on Bad Life and Numerology Records.
One of the most promising young artists coming out of the London beat scene, British producer and singer Maths Time Joy, returns with a new EP titled “Sanctuary.”
The four tracks are a mission statement for the Maths Time Joy sound – drawing on hip-hop and jazz influences to meld joyous multi-layered electronic music with soulful vocals and funk-infused bass.
