NERVOUS RECORDS

Nervous Records, the iconic label started by visionary father son duo Sam and Mike Weiss celebrates its 30th anniversary with an absolutely jam-packed selection of music. Comprised of both seminal & classic tracks from the label's archive, alongside brand-new remixes by some of its more recent signings, it's a brilliantly curated comp which shows the breadth of innovation this New York based label has enjoyed over its inspiring career. Literally every single DJ I know owns a Nervous record somewhere in their collection; whether it's the purist utterances of house music, soul-infused hip-hop or the early blueprints of what would become techno; the label's sincere and heartfelt approach to artists has nurtured an incredibly diverse and well-respected roster. Named after Louie Vega & Kenny Dope's 'Nervous Track' which would go onto inspire the London broken beat scene; their roster reads like a who's who of dance music royalty: David Morales, Tony Humphries, Roger Sanchez, Armand Van Helden, Kerri Chandler, Kim English, Byron Stingily and Josh Wink to name just a few!

Part two of the compilation sees much of the label's classic house tracks given a brand new remix by artists such as Adelphi Music Factory, Sarius Syrossian and Gerd Janson alongside older signings such as David Morales and Felix Da Housecat. Armand Van Helden drops a rawkus mix of Deep Creed's "The Anthem" whilst Kim English' soulful anthem "Learn 2 Luv" gets two flavoursome remixes by Ralf GUM and Mood II Swing.

Set across four discs, the tracks are all pressed at maximum fidelity making it totally DJ friendly too. A vigorously in-depth portrait of this most highly regarded of labels that we can't recommend enough.

Label classic, "You Make Me Feel Might Real", Byron Stingley's invigorated take on the Sylvestre hi-nrg disco staple gets a fresh leese of life via an inspired Kevin McKay remix whilst elsewhere, the proto-hardcore of Phture Trax's "Future Groove" is maxed out by Agent Orange who adopts a tribal-techno approach.

Louie Vega

Expansions In The NYC - Another Day In My Life / Deep Burnt Feat. Alex Tosca

Two supreme House Grooves from the world renowned “Maestro” of the dancefloor in the continuing build-up to the Louie Vega “Expansions In The NYC” album release. With “Another Day In My Life” Louie Vega incorporates elements of the classic jam “Never Had A Love So Good” by Charles Johnson (fully cleared and licensed from the legendary Henry Stone Music Company), and creates a driving and infectious soul-infused club anthem that ruled the DJ download platforms prior to its vinyl release. On the AA side, Louie works with his long time collaborator Axel Tosca as well as legendary Chicago DJ / Vocalist Mike Dunn to create his own very soulful and New York flavored interpretation of the renowned 1999 Deep Burnt song by Pepe Bradock, done of course with Pepe Bradocks blessings and appreciation.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: I was unsure I needed to hear another version of "Deep Burnt" but fair doos to Mr. Vega and co. - they've injected a certain unique energy and flavour into this classic house trope that give it some extra mileage on the dancefloor. Any soulful house lovers are gonna dig this and the Southport Weekender crowd are surely gonna embrace is as a modern classic.

A. Another Day In My Life
AA. Deep Burnt Feat. Axel Tosca

Louie Vega and Dave Lee remix Anané’s single ‘Tell Me That I’m Dreaming’ on Nervous Records this summer.

The powerful yet intimate voice of Anané Vega, owner of Nulu Music, radiates rhythm, soul and style. Billboard Magazine described Anané as “combining earthiness with glamour and roots-deep house music knowledge with pop wise diversity” - a quote that her music and fashion adhere to effortlessly.

‘Tell Me That I’m Dreaming’ sees Anané join the legendary NYC label's roster as she combines funky electronic, funk-infused grooves and a compelling voice that gracefully floats over Louie Vega’s sensual production. A leader in global dance music and Grammy Award Winner, Louie Vega has painted an award-winning career from a palette mixed with everything from house, salsa and afro-beat, to jazz, hip hop, gospel and soul. Vega continues to lay down genuinely timeless music, rightfully earning him the title as one of The Kings of House Music.

Renowned UK artist Dave Lee blends low-slung disco rhythms, irresistible slap bass and acid zaps in his remix that sits wonderfully above Anané’s vocals that inspire strength and pure love.

Rhyze / John Davis & The Monster Orchestra

Free (Louie Vega Remix) (Danny Krivit 7” Edit) / Love Magic (Danny Krivit 7” Edit)

With interest in Disco as strong as ever, we continue to mine the SAM Records catalogue for Disco treasures. “Free” by Rhyze is one of the catalogue’s lesser known titles, but with its inspired rolling horn hits sprinkled throughout the song and its funk based organ and keys, it’s got all the elements for a current hit among disco and house afficionados. World renowned and Grammy award winning producer Louie Vega recognized this a few years back even before disco was back in the spotlight and gave it a massive injection of modern dancefloor energy. And now the universally recognized “King Of the Edit” Danny Krivit has put his unique musical touch on this disco funk jam. On the B Side is another disco treasure from legendary Phillie based producer John Davis. “Love Magic” had all the memorable and classic elements of the late 70’s disco era. Produced at Sigma Sounds in Phillie, the song is embued with lush strings, over-the-top funky lead guitar and throbbing bass combined with sulty female vocals singing to one of the John’s consistently superb tunes. Danny Krivit brings out the hottest elements for the special 45 RPM 7" release.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Production / remix / DJ monolith Danny Krivit continues to put mere mortals to shame with his mammoth work ethic. You'da thought he'd have hung up his headphones by now but oh no, the man just keeps on giving!
