Teaming up alongside London-based ‘electrofolk’ outfit Crystal Fighters, Feed Me steps away from the tough Electro beats now synonymous with his musical movements for a single of beautiful proportions in ‘Love Is All I Got’. Blending systematic beats, delightful piano play and segments of his own, aggressive Electro sound, Gooch flexes his instrumental muscles to match the British/Spanish band’s soothing vocal stylings with an instrumentation that may stir a slight sense of disdain among the more pure bred Feed Me fans but indicates that the sharp-teethed Brit has still got multiple aces up his sleeve.
But where the original marks an unexpected digression from his signature sound, Feed Me’s own ‘Matilda’ remix sees him Gooch’s ‘Matilda’ remix sees him swap its more soothing beats and ultra-treble guitars for that tough collection of mechanic beats and pulsing lead work. Rounding off the package, German Deep House advocate Larse lays down a minimalistic number of deep bass play and rhythmic swells.
With the remnants of last year’s landmark release ‘So Long’ still doing the rounds, Dortmund’s rising Deep House advocate Larse makes his Mau5trap Recordings debut with his take on Feed Me and Crystal Fighters’ upcoming single.
Back on remix duty after taking Candi Staton’s ‘Hallelujah Anyway‘ through the motions of deep bass play and rhythmic swells, the German producer goes in a similar vein to lay down a minimalistic number of ‘Love Is All I Got‘. Teeming with steady grooves and reverberated melodies, Larse’s latest remix adds yet further weight to the Deep House overhaul that he remains a strong contender to.
Out November 18th.
With a heritage of hits behind her and one of the most distinct surviving voices of Soul, the long overdue return of reformed gospel legend Candi Staton to Defected Records sees a slew of quality remixes from the past and future masters of modern Dance music.
With the remnants of last year’s landmark release ‘So Long’ still doing the rounds, Dortmund’s rising Deep House advocate Larse makes his Defected Records debut with a fresh take on Staton’s return to the spotlight. With the profund rhythmic swells and crisp percussive elements that have ornamented his rise of late, Larse persuasively embraces the timeless vocal assets of ‘Hallelujah Anyway’ in a first proficient outing for the renowned House imprint.
In a strong turn to warmer realms of soulful club music, Chicago House legend Frankie Knuckles and his long serving peer Eric Kupper team up to take on the divine gospel stylings of Candi Staton and her single ‘Hallelujah Anyway’. Balancing smooth House beats with the thick instrumental values that both producers have excelled throughout their decades within industry, this key driven cut for Staton’s welcome return to the club floor is music you could sink your teeth into from two uncompromised forces in American House music.

German Deep House deviant Larse returns to make his mark on volume three of Noir Music’s ‘Use Your Ears’ compilation series with ‘VSJ’. Having recently unveiled an affirmative remix of Candi Staton’s ‘Hallelujah Anyway’ for Defected, the rising producer dons his signature haunting sample work to a canvas of steady grooves and reverberated melodies to forge by far one of his most evocative solo productions to date. As his global infamy continues so soar to universal heights, this powerful mark of sturdy club fuel adds yet further weight to the Deep House overhaul that Larse remains a strong contender to.
With the remnants of last year’s landmark release ‘So Long’ still doing the rounds, Dortmund’s Deep House master Larse continues to make his mark as he previews his forthcoming first release on Defected Records. Coming off the remix of Hollis P Monroe’s ‘I’m Lonely’ earlier this year, Larse’s return to remix duty sees him don his studio intellect to the timeless voice of Candi Staton.
Teeming with deep, rhythmic bass and crisp percussions, the German Noir regular replaces the original’s already soothing disco stylings to better complement Candi Staton’s haunting vocals with his minimalistic signature sound while further fuelling Defected’s ongoing summer streak of Deep House gems.
The Larse remix of ‘Hallelujah Anyway’ will be released August 27th.
