Fat! has hit the ground running at the start of 2015. The labels first release of the year is from Austrian producer ALAEV. Light As A Feather’ is his debut single, after releasing compilation tracks on Well Done! Music, including a collaboration with Marlon Hoffstadt.
The track is a beautifully composed and executed, melodic journey that features the absolutely gorgeous vocals of Julia Biel. Having won the coveted Perrier Vocalist of the Year award in 2000 at the Edinburgh Festival, Biel then went on to work with Ben Watt, of Everything But The Girl fame and more recently, Stimming.
Having recently signed to Sony Records’ new label project The Full Hundred, London duo SoulCircuit lead the charge on remix duties with a punchy, ten tonne dose of Detroit house and beaming top lines, which manage to flawlessly elevate Biel’s vocals, even further than the original. Emerging Australian producer Amateur Dance recently won praise from The Fadar and Do Androids Dance for his recent EP on October Records. Here his deep and soulful rendition showcases exactly what is so vibrant, about the burgeoning house scene down under.
Closing out this one is a bright and breezy take from Joe Hertz, who’s recently been turning heads for his fantastic official remixes for Years & Years and MØ. Keep an eye on him this year!
