HNNY is mostly known (so far) for his amazing house take on Mariah Carey’s cover version of Foreigner’s ‘I want to know what love is’ which was released on fellow Stockholm label Studio Barnhus last year.
For his debut on Local Talk, he’s pulled together house gems that showcase a remarkable diversity in production quality. The first cut ‘For The Very First Time’ is already a big track in the Stockholm club scene and supported by the whole Studio Barnhus crew. The second track and possibly the most played track in the Local Talk office over the last months is the slightly old school ‘Apricots’. It’s all about the New Jersey organs and analogue basslines on this one. Proper feel good biz! Last but not least HNNY delivers a +10 min long killer dj tool consisting of percussion and drums only. The track is called ‘Trummor’ which in Swedish simply means drums.

Take a young aspiring producer from Polokwane, South Africa and a seasoned vocalist from Dundee, Scotland and the result is undoubtedly this soulful masterpiece. Lele X is a name that has slowly been growing and mentioned in different circles. He has featured on various projects for Peng Africa and it was only fitting that his debut release be with the label. Guests of Nature who’s real name is Eugene Macdonald has worked with Peng Africa’s Kojo Akusa so is no stranger to the label. Keep Dreaming accompanied by talented remixers such as Chymamusique, D-Malice, Kojo Akusa, Posh and Soul Secured can only be what the House doctor prescribed.

UK duo Copyright join forces with renowned vocalist Ann Saunderson, who gained acclaim from her work with the legendary Inner City and alongside techno legends Octave One. ‘Stronger’ is a typically percussion-heavy workout, with full, stimulating, synth work providing the top layer and a luscious pad that weaves its way in and out of proceedings. Saunderson provides the soul with her emotionally loaded vocals, the lyrics providing beautifully textured vocal mantra that remains true to Copyright’s stance of always having a meaning behind their lyricism.

Candi Staton has legacy beyond compare. Responsible for some of the most memorable and best loved soul records of all time, Staton has a voice that is currently captivating a new generation of music lovers just as it did when she first oooed and ahhed onto the music scene as a soul siren in the ’70s. Staton’s latest single is ‘Hallelujah Anyway’; a timeless, feel-good soul record typical of Staton’s overwhelmingly positive musical message, now released with remixes from Director’s Cut and Larse. Under their Director’s Cut guise, Frankie Knuckles and Eric Kupper deliver two versions that pair Staton’s inimitable vocal with Knuckle’s legendary house chords with stunningly effective results. Larse meanwhile goes deep with a club-ready cut that demonstrates the versatility of Staton’s vocal, sitting proudly over a beautifully melancholic piece of production. This is definitely one of the vocal records of the summer 2012 season.

The idea for this track was actually born during a ‘Buddhist’ meeting between Ricky Diciotto and Alan Sorrenti (a legendary Italian Pop star). Ricky proposed to Alan the idea of doing a remake of one of his most famous songs ‘Figli Delle Stelle’, which was a huge success during the 80’s and filed on Discogs as Electronic-Italo-Disco. The lyrics had to be in English though in order to expose the song to the international public, and that’s when Ricky thought to involve Kenny Carpenter so he could help co-produce and write the song together with the talented singer Wendy Lewis.

Born in 1981 and raised near Chicago, Bryan was bitten by the DJ bug at the age of 18 and quickly started releasing vinyl records thereafter with Mike Gillenwater under the ‘High Caliber’ alias. The duo’s highlight was the inclusion of their song ‘Shakedown’ on the ‘Playboy: The Mansion’ video game and accompanying soundtrack, mixed by Felix Da Housecat. Other projects were signed to leading house labels including Guesthouse, Moody, Robsoul and DJ Dan’s In Stereo.

‘The Way You Feel’ is a collaboration by Bryan with Mr. No and is available on Nervous Records with Scott Diaz and Wattie Green on the remix duties.
