Fine instalments in the British empire of eclectic House talents may not be a new concept these days, but Russ Chimes’ return to the original production front after the success of ‘Back 2 You’ marks a bid to freshen up his country’s reign on the international club scene. Sampling Kathy Brown’s ‘95 hit with the same name and teeming with the same scattered key work and good-time vibes as it’s predecessor, ‘Turn Me Out’ plays out aptly to the forward-thinking take on dance music we have come to associate with Chimes. On the flip, however, Irish nu-house producer provides us with the one-and-only remix for the track, rounding out the release with a display of his signature piano-laden sound.

Out now on Beatport.


2012 was a big year for the Dance music industry and an even bigger one for British House connoisseur Russ Chimes, releasing ‘Back 2 You’ to much acclaim as well as a few equally impressive remixes, most notably his take on ‘Flaws’. But back on remix duty for the new year, Chimes releases his re-interpretation of Manchester duo Hurts’ latest single ‘Miracle’.

Fusing vintage charm with modern club attitude, Chimes lays down a remix of staggered chord surges and infectious vocal loops throughout. Rallying the same, inimitable sound that we have come to associate and love about Chimes, this sophisticated dose of melodic floor fuel is yet another mark of quality from the British producer en route to the Miami season.

Fine instalments in the British empire of eclectic House talents may not be a new concept these days, but Russ Chimes’ return to the original production front with ‘Turn Me Out’ marks a bid to freshen up his country’s reign on the international club scene. Having made affirmative progression with latest single ‘Back 2 You‘, Annie Mac was the first to get her hands on its hotly tipped follow-up with a world premiere on last Friday’s show.

Sampling Kathy Brown’s ‘95 hit with the same name and teeming with the same scattered key work and good time vibes as its predecessor, ‘Turn Me Out’ plays out aptly to the forward-thinking take on Dance music we have come to associate with Chimes.

Update (5/3): The release date has been set for April 29th.

Armed with the same deep and reverberated House grooves that recently saw him ascend the industrious ladder with ‘Back 2 You‘, London’s Russ Chimes returns to the forefront to take on remix duties for hometown indie band Bastille’s latest single, ‘Flaws’.

With a sound rooted with the more organic measures of coherent club fuel, Russ Chimes’ deep yet firm rhythmic progressions are met with that subtle melodic stamina that the British crusader has come to encompass. Scoring imperfect lead play alongside the dissected top line of the Bastille original, the Chimes remix of ‘Flaws’ hits the nail on the head where futuristic House music is concerned and lays down a formative number of an already acclaimed indie pop single.

In the aftermath of his successful single ‘Back 2 You‘, London’s Russ Chimes returns with a unique new one hour mix. Launching with a stern transition from his aesthetic opening sequence to an edit of a 2009 remix from Sare Havlicek followed by his upcoming remix of Bastille’s ‘Flaws‘, Chimes leaps from dose to dose of forward-thinking club music with the seamless energy that has fuelled his own studio exploits. Working in a choice selection of tracks from the likes of Sasha, Starsmith, Joe Goddard, Dusky, and more, episode five of his ‘Expressway Mix’ series is as thoroughly unique and refreshing as there ever could be.

Embracing the forward-thinking motions yet again, his take on ‘Back 2 You’ deals an exquisite standard setter catered valiantly for the less predictable avenues of the summer clubbing.
