Mr Drew is back, this time with a funky house beast tempered with a fat booty bass and wicked vocals. This one is on Drew’s own style, funky all the way.
In charge of the remix is Luís Bravo who does an excelent approach to “The Sound Of DISKO” vibes mixing some hot chords with a proper 90’s drumline. There’s not much left to say that you can’t experience better listening!
After “Get Up!” Mr. Drew is back with “Hot Jazz”, a joint venture between him and a newcomer, one half of the portuguese duo Lazer Mike and an extremely talented keyboarder, Charles Lazer.
Hot Jazz is a piece of true House Music with a foot in the balearic house with some fine british acid house flavour, driven through juicy chords and a groovy round bassline, which is his trademark.
The Original Mix aims to keep your sight into the core of the composition, while the “Renegade Master Version” grabs the roots of Wild Child vocal, turning what is already awesome into something outrageously tasty!
This time we’ve decided to reignite and reintroduce some classic 90’s flavour to the scene with a joint venture from Mr Drew and Fragoso, who together have cooked up ‘Get Funky EP'; a zesty two track EP, featuring reworks of the Angel Moraes house classic, ‘Turn it Up’.
Beginning with Mr Drew’s interpretation on this revival, ‘Get Up’ mixes textured nu school beats with an old school bassline, culminating as the main groove and delivering a melodic pad at the break – delicious. Although, it is the vocals which really bring the theme to focus, echoing across the track and pushing through the overall floating, bassy mood – bringing back the old time vibes.
Fragoso’s addition to this release, ‘Funk Acido’, incorporates the vocals of ‘Turn it Up’ into an entirely new body. The bassline sees in this track with a smooth and steady swing. As the theme increasingly sets in, it seems to climb further towards a heating groove, only heightened by the certain rush supplied by the response of the drums and resulting in the final monster which will have you moving to outrageous effect by its completion.
This EP can be summarised in as few words as, two bombs just begging for flame.
