CLASSIC

In October 2017 Honey Dijon was commissioned to take part in the Smirnoff ‘We’re Open’ campaign, aiming to promote inclusive night time culture and celebrate nightlife's ability to transcend gender boundaries and prejudice. As well as appearing in the ‘We’re Open’ TV commercial, Honey was asked to record her take on the initiative’s ethos for creating positive change, making dance music culture a more open-minded and socially inclusive space. What resulted was a rework of ‘Queen of Disco’, Sylvester’s "Stars" featuring vocals by singer-songwriter Sam Sparro, who she collaborated with previously on her album "The Best of Both Worlds". Now being released on limited edition blue vinyl via Classic Music Company, with breathtaking artwork from Assume Vivid Astro Focus who also supplied cover artwork for the album, the entire proceeds from the release will be donated to LGBT Foundation.

Created with parts recorded especially for the ‘We’re Open’ advert, "Stars" (Disco Version), produced with the help of Classic head Luke Solomon and studio partner Lance Desardi, pops Sylvester’s spangled party-starter directly into 2018. Underlining Honey’s acidic but sweet production, is followed by two mixes by one of her favourite producers of the moment and fellow Chicagoan, Cratebug. His "Nova ReMix" references the classic disco elements of the original, while the "Supernova ReMix" goes fully intergalactic with a glorious squelching extended mix. Paying lip service to the legacy of a truly gender-redefining figure whose music is nothing but inclusive and empowering, Honey Dijon and Classic prove the power of music to inspire positive change in the dance music communities with this ‘Stars’ release.


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!

"Shine" from Soul Clap and Nona Hendryx is a slice of summery pop-house brilliance that'll get your teenage sister moving at the Warehouse Project as much it'll get our Dave Walker moving at the gym! Increasing your marimba intake by 200% with two additional versions, Hot Toddy gives exotic plushness with a diversified rhythm section and melodic bottom lines that lightly entwine, shimmering in the light of Nona’s voice. Scott Grooves brings the funk, with an upfront bassline and extra JB-style horns on his "Horns Dub", while the "Deepah Dub" takes a housier approach while still keeping the horn stabs. Scott finishes off with an ‘Echopella’ of Nona’s vocals recorded from the International Space Station.
