Octave One – Blackwater

Remember the goosepimples the first time you heard ‘Big Fun’ or ‘Strings Of Life’? Get ready for the same rush of adrenalin.

Detroit Techno is about to go overground one more time thanks to ‘Blackwater’ from Motor City electronica heroes Octave One. Their mix of DJ Rolando AKA The Aztec Mystic ‘Jaguar’ became the most hyped up floorfiller of the millennium, starting life as an underground secret and becoming the soundtrack to Radio 1 for the summer. While the overground lapped up the tune, the underground was getting into another Detroit cool as can be instrumental with a nagging hook. ‘Blackwater’.

Imports have been steadily fueling demand and the track is now spilling over from techno clubs and causing mayhem in mainstream venues. What was an instant classic has been propelled into the stratosphere thanks to a song and vocal being added by Ann Saunderson (Inner City and The Reese Project).

The result is one of the finest moments ever to come from Detroit’s techno scene. A soundtrack for a hot summer and beyond. Mixes from Octave 1, Kevin Saunderson and Kaotic Special Rhythms.

Get ready for those goosbumps. And the funky party.

Matthias Hilbronn ft Inaya Day – I Made It

Matthias Heilbronn is one of the underground heroes of proper quality house music.

The German living in New York learned his craft engineering at Francois Kervoikan’s famed Axis Studio in the Big Apple, and his music is an unusual cocktail of a studio engineer’s precision and a club DJ’s flair and instinctive knowledge of what makes a dance floor unite.

Written with NY studio legend Albert Menendez – of Masters At Work repute – and diva Inaya Day – who supplies her distinctive vocals, ‘I Made It’ is the perfect antidote to the current crop of disposable 12”s currently doing the rounds.

Inspiring house music with mixes that go Vocal House, Deep House, Hard Dub and even an Acid House revival – this is suSU standing up and being counted.

Rosie Gaines – Closer Than Close

Rosie’s most famous dance hit gets the MK re-working on this release, bringing it straight up to date with a dancefloor bang.

Whilst maintaining all the glory of the original, the main man at the mixing desk effortlessly injects added life into the instantly recognisable classic.

With his trademark top drawer production skills complimenting the queen of soulful house’s silky smooth vocals and including both a vocal ‘re-spray’ mix and a ‘darker than dark’ dub to ensure there’s something for everyone, there’s absolutely no wonder why DJs worldwide are clearing a Closer than Close shaped space in their record box as we speak.

Mama Razzi – As I Kiss You

Mama Razzi’s second suSU single sees the male-female duo hook up with two top production talents – UK Soulful House don, Richard Earnshaw, and the USA’s Mac Quayle.

Earnshaw came up with the original production on ‘As I Kiss You’ – which also benefits from backing vocals and vocal production from Diane Charlemagne – this was then handed back over to Quayle (renowned for his work with Madonna & New Order) to work his harder house magic.

The result is a darker, tougher sounding release than usual on suSU, and a 12” that will sell beyond the usual label devotees. As a bonus, the in-demand Earnshaw dub of Mama Razzi’s ‘Show Me Love’ is included.
