CLASSIC

Croatian producer Ilija Rudman returns to Classic with his funk-drenched ‘Lovers Change Minds’. Well-known for his distinctive analogue-disco sound, the record’s delivery on 12” vinyl comes as a perfect pairing. He remains reverent to his well-rounded retro style with heavily filtered soft vocals complimented by a deep 70s-centric bassline. Hot Toddy’s bass-focused mixes come laden with electric guitar riffs and synth flares for an even slicker groove on Ilija’s smoothly minimalist masterpiece.

STAFF COMMENTS

Sil says: Smooth operator Ilja Rudman grace us with a funky slow burner with soft vocals and infectious bassline. Hot Toddy turns things a bit more electronic but keeping the original funky patina well alive. Released under the legendary Classic Music Company record label. Ace!

Setting out to make some “happy music”, Sophie Lloyd produced ‘Calling Out’ in a dreary January as an antidote to the pervading doom and gloom of the news, summoning the power of the most joy-filled sound of all, gospel. This no-holds-barred anthem radiates all the live atmosphere of gospel worship in mid flow, with full instrumentation, keyboard breaks and understated kick drum pulling it all together. Bringing in the uplifting voices of soul trio Dames Brown to re-record some old gospel samples was the icing on the cake, adding the last element of authenticity. A new member of the Classic family, Sophie Lloyd’s impeccable knowledge of disco, soul and house shines through in this sparkling record, available on 7” for the very first time.

Sophie Lloyd Feat. Dames Brown

Calling Out - Inc. Floorplan Remixes

Sophie Lloyd produced "Calling Out" on a dreary January as an antidote to the pervading doom and gloom of the news, summoning the power of the most joy-filled sound of all, gospel. The track radiates all the live atmosphere of gospel worship in mid flow, with soul trio Dames Brown bringing the authenticity. Following the 7” release, which sold out due to huge demand, comes the 12” complete with the original version plus two brand new mixes from Floorplan. The duo of Detroit techno pioneer Robert Hood and his daughter Lyric Hood are well known for their gospel-infused sound with Hood’s hometown influences always apparent. Their club mix opens with a heavily swinging groove which breaks down into pure 4/4 indulgence, while the 'revival mix' singles out the looped piano and organ riffs. Putting their assertive spin on this new Classic anthem, Floorplan turn up the levels on "Calling Out", bathing it in further glory. This is truly massive, in every single way - check!

Derrick Carter and Luke Solomon's latest venture features the first in a series of EPs entitled "10" hosting a combination of their favourite producers. First up is the highly sort after new single from Brett Johnson featuring world famous Chicago DJ, DJ Heather. Stripped down to the minimum of a killer acid line and a spooky vocal, this has been tearing up soundsystems all over Europe and The States. On the same side, Justin Harris, one half of Freaks, brings a more bumping affair on "Words And Lies (Don't Believe It)" that should fair well across the pond. On the flip, Brazil super house talent Prztz serves up "Small Talk". This funky jam is sure to cross over from the Chicago DJ's to European. And last of all the return of Nail. Having released a series of 12's on Classic 10 years ago, Nail has spent the missing time recording with pop act Bent. Nail returns to Classic with a killer jam reminiscent of early Larry Heard. All 4 cuts have been gaining support from Luciano, Doc Martin, Derrick Carter, Ralph Lawson, Dixon, King Britt and Andrew Weatherall.

Funky Transport Meets Jonee Q

Mixed Up

Iain McPherson and James Sissons' Funky Transport meet up with vocalist Jonee Q to drop freaky house cut "Mixed Up". Having already graced some of the most respected house labels with their productions and remixes for the likes of 2020, Playhouse, Brique Rouge, as well as their own Flygaric Tracks label, the duo now grace Classic with this new track. Also included in this package is a remix by man of the moment, Sweden's wonder boy, Style Of Eye, who adds an extra wiggle to the bassline and swing to the beat. Already being dropped by Ivan Smagghe, Dan Ghenacia, Derrick Carter, Luke Solomon and Mark Farina, this release looks set to further cement this duo's fine reputation. You also get a dub and acapella of the original mix.
