Young & Dumb (ft. Bubbz) by HeavyFeet
To celebrate the launch of their new Stamp! Beats imprint, Manchester UK dancefloor production duo HeavyFeet has been releasing one free mp3 each month in 2k10, with a different vocalist on each!
'War' features the mighty Jenna G on vocals. Atop a deep atmospheric 2-step groover, Jenna's unmistakable voice soars over the rolling synths. The original is backed up by a tough, bassline-style Club Mix and a sumptuous future-garage remix from Pittsburgh based Kastle. The release has found support from the likes of MJ Cole, Freq Nasty, AC Slater, DJ Q and Hackman.
'Young & Dumb' is a cheeky old skool number featuring the notorious Bubbz on the mic, delivering some well remembered words of wisdom to the young men of today. With HeavyFeet's own Club Dub focusing on stripped back Dutch house style drums, repetitive synth hooks and choice cuts of vocal over a pounding sub bass and dance music’s favourite ex-pat, Nick Thayer, rounding off the package with a storming main room mix, featuring a thumping, garagey drum groove and one of the nastiest, heaviest basslines heard this side of 2010, you'd most definitely be Young & Dumb not to check this release out!
‘Saving Me’ sees HeavyFeet take on the bubbling broken beat scene to great effect, focusing on pulsating, chromatic synth chords, chunky, live drum breaks and an array of traditional broken beat instrumentation as Jon Rice (recently compared to London vocal starlet Ben Westbeech) belts out a wonderfully simple, jazzy vocal hook. HeavyFeet’s own Club Dub is a further take on some of their favorite dancefloor flavours, tackling bashment, funky and breaks with their typical heavy drum sound and ever present sub bass. Southern Fried Records’ men of the moment, Black Noise, deliver a suitably styled summer anthem, complete with sampled disco vibes, funky club drums and select cuts from Rice’s catchy vocal line... it’s got Ibiza written all over it!
‘We Came To Party’ is HeavyFeet's 5th single of 2010, featuring none other than the bubbling starlet that is Brooklyn-based producer, songwriter and vocalist, Kovas, who has recently completed remix work and co-production for the likes of Will-I-Am (ft. Usher), Justin Timberlake, Ciara and M.I.A. With bold, edgy synth lines and big, beefy kick drums, the Original Mix delivers a party orientated hip-hop vibe on the verses with an uplifting chorus (featuring the talented Hannah Talbot on backing vocals). HeavyFeet's own Club Mix goes all out tropical, featuring wacky tuned percussion, big room friendly, hands-in-the-air pianos and plenty of growling sub bass on the drops. Tom Stephan, a Pacha NYC resident and one of HeavyFeet's favourite producers, steps up to the remix plate to deliver a huge club mix complete with select dubbed out vocal chops, driving bass stabs, white noise bursts and a humongous kick drum!
