Off the back of their most prolific year to date, Dutch vocal trio Shermanology team up with label mate and renowned chainsaw master R3HAB for the long overdue unveiling of their latest single ‘Living 4 The City’. Having first emerged onto the radar more than one year ago, the buzz behind their previous Afrojack collaboration ‘Can’t Stop Me’ is followed-up with a suitably robust rework for their collective return to Wall Recordings.

Led once again by the full-bodied vocal stylings of the trio’s leading lady Dorothy Sherman, smooth melodic leads transcend into a chainsaw-worthy eruption of the grinding synth work and beat-driven focus that Fadil el Ghoul has come to personify throughout his industry explosion. Leaving room for the uplifting top line and pacing the track’s peak time assets, the four artists drop the original version’s more fluid club assets for a full-on embrace of R3HAB’s characteristics.

Update: Full sample added.

More than one year in the waiting, Dutch Electro pundit R3hab joins Shermanology to make a sizeable dent of chainsaw madness, jumping aboard the trio’s ‘Living 4 The City’ single ahead of it’s long-awaited October 29th release off of Afrojack’s Wall Recordings label.

Maintaining the earlier version’s bouncy vibe, Fadil El Ghoul’s chainsaw dialect plays out coherently alongside Dorothy Sherman’s sinewy voice and adds a harder-cut undertone of extensive lead play and staggered riffage to the 2011 original. Flipping from soothing build-ups to cataclysmic drops, the finished product of ‘Living 4 The City’ looks set to become a landmark release for artists and label alike as something of a 2012 follow-up to last year’s ‘Sending My Love’.

Out October 29th on Wall Recordings.

Following on from remixes by Dutch Dance icon Tiësto and R3hab & Dyro, Afrojack and Shermanology’s beloved vocal outing ‘Can’t Stop Me’ receives a second wind from two of Britain’s most hotly tipped House evangelists to date – Kryder and Tom Staar. Fresh off of the Moda founders remix duties for ‘African Drop’, Afrojack’s poignant Dutch hallmarks are replaced by a highly-supported raw and heavyset take of optimal energy. While their edit significantly lacks the vocal opulence of the original, Staar and Kryder prove that British House music is on par with a deep and dark turn for this radio-savvy single.

Now established as Dutch House music’s bonafide party boy, the life and times of Nick Van De Wall have taken a true turn for the crazy over the past year. With his first taste for chart worthy club stylings ‘Take Over Control’ dealing a devastating rise in his mainstream appeal, what ensued was an orgy of celebrity cameos, R&B collaborations and American residencies for the once rooted stronghold of Holland’s thriving underground House elite. Already championed by the likes of The Shapeshifters and Chocolate Puma, Shermanology are in a similar position of articulate musical progression to their longstanding industry peer, boasting a superior live presence alongside their impending global explosion.

But closer to home Afrojack’s musical legacy of Wall Recordings has shown little concern for the mainstream commodities that have engulfed his day to day life, instead opting for an ongoing rampage of elcteic Netherland’s talent that has proven itself gold dust across the industry. Once Holland’s best kept sectret, Andy, Dorothy and Leon Sherman join their renowned Dutch devotee to don their superb vocal stylings to a song that beautifully summarises the life and times of both musical forces. Dealing in those signature synth leads that have illuminated dance floors and billboard charts alike with passionate club-tinged charm, Dorothy leads proceedings with her beautifuly moulded melodic styling’s to drive home a hard-hitting follow-up to 2011’s ‘Grindin’.

As opposed to their previous first and fairly dark collaborative effort, titled Grindin, Can’t Stop Me, the forthcoming second club juggernaut from the hands of Afrojack and Shermanology, showcases far less intricate build-ups to go hand-in-hand with the altisonant voice of prominent songstress Dorothy Sherman. Made up by a captivating, squeaky lead and the heavy-stepping kicks and growling sounds the world has seen become the prolific trademark of fellow Dutch house headliner Nick van de Wall as far as the instrumentals go, it comes as no surprise Can’t Stop Me Now is due to be one of the first installments of Wall Recordings in 2012 and consequently set the bar of the label’s progression next year to an all-time high.

Hailing from the Netherlands, the small, central European country that has played an essential role as a powerhouse specialized in the upbringing of new talented contributors to the continued development of electronic dance music, Afrojack and the three Sherman siblings join forces for a game-changer. With an appeal that is rather reminiscent of Afrojack’s successful Take Over Control, starring vocals from Eva Simons, in its brisk and bright signature sound, Can’t Stop Me sees itself becoming a sought-after and sing-along club gem from the four Hollanders next year.

‘Can’t Stop Me’ is due to be released on January 23rd via Wall Recordings.
