About this item
Sophie Lloyd’s debut on Classic Music Company, "Calling Out" came last year as an antidote to the pervading doom and gloom of the news and a dreary winter, and inspired remixes from David Penn, Danny Krivit, Riva Starr and Floorplan. On her second single "Raise Me Up" she re-unites with soul trio Dames Brown to deliver a dose of seriously uplifting, gospel-infused house music. Sophie’s impeccable knowledge of disco and soul shines through on the record, with organ chords and rhythmic percussion bringing the authentic gospel sound of countless classics. This 12” release also features two mixes from fellow Londoner Alan Dixon, who brings his signature disco-laced sound to the release, his remix upping the tempo and with a harder bassline that makes the track more club-focused. Alan’s stripped-back dub rounds off the release with an essential club tool. If you're a fan of that authentic & original house sound, don't sleep on this beaut....
Sil says: Full on and with plenty of soul, Alan Dixon delivers couple of vocal house for the nostalgic crowd out there. Very much in the MAW vein. Future classic.
