Soul Central, also known as Paul Timothy and Matt Mckillop, are most famously known for their version of ‘Strings Of Life’ which became a global House music anthem. Now the duo are celebrating 20 years of the act. Soul Central’s productions and remixes have graced iconic labels such as Masters at Work’s Kenlou MAW Records, Defected Records, Strictly Rhythm, Ministry Of Sound and many more.
Crystal Waters & Soul Central – Love One Another – Quantize Recordings
Our latest track we’ve been heavily road testing for some time and DJ Spen supported it from the very beginning. With a distinct driving bass line underpinning the iconic Crystal Waters hook laden vocals it’s a surefire winner for Soulful & House clubs. Taking in a touch of Disco with classic House elements you’ll be hearing this on steady rotation all Summer long… It’s already climbing the charts which is a great sign.
Dam Swindle – Body Control – Heist Recordings
The boys drop another weapon that satisfies all the serious House heads. Perfectly produced it flows incredibly well with great rhythm and adept musicality. We fit this one anytime as it always translates into happy faces and dancing feet. Dam Swindle definitely knows how to deliver quality tunes with a cohesive style. The real deal.
Steve Bug – Back T 95 feat. Mr. V (Cinthie‘s Just A Vibe Remix) – Aus Music
Complete with old school piano stabs underpinning MR V’s trademark vocal style. as he narrates a flashback across House history. It’s one of those tunes that instantly takes you back to a golden era and unifies the crowd anytime it’s dropped. All artists featured here are independently our firm favourites so a collaboration was inevitable and it really delivered. It’s fun with a serious bump underneath to ensure it cuts it on a big system.
Afefe Iku – Saffron – Yoruba Records
Alongside his recent Sista Georgia release this tune’s got a deep and consistent vibe that really sets the mood. With heavyweight dub influences evolving it’s got a great signature sound and maintains an authentic feel throughout. This track sits apart from the masses and something we’ll be championing for a long while ahead.
Soul Central – The Destroyer – Hacienda Records
Our killer funk cut due out on Hacienda Records it’s already been featuring heavily in the Hacienda Classical live sets including the iconic Royal Albert Hall a few months back. This release is due to drop peak Summer with some great mixes from Moodena and JARC. It’s got a unique hook that really switches it up with a timeless attitude. Originally a Soul/ Funk chart topper for us this package is fuelled with Nu Disco energy.
BoomClap feat. Cerys – Always (Deep Core Vocal) – Electric Mode
Deep and chunky classic chords in a definitive Murk interpretation. This one’s got all the hallmarks of late night club sessions. A great balance of realand raw elements that float and interweave to create an epic groove that bounces from beginning to end. We gave Scott some feedback early on and he returned with this uber hot number that also got the full thumbs up from Louie Vega.
Banksia Feat. Self Tape – It’s Been Done – Electric Mode
The debut single from our good friend Banksia (who also remixed our forthcoming Destroyer single) with some fantastic afro acid lines included. It’s Been Done has the hallmarks of an early Detroit number with some classic rave references. Mark our words that this guy is definitely one to watch in the future. He’s already supporting the likes of Carabou, Overmono, Black Coffee, Moodymann, Peggy Gou, Tale Of Us and Disclosure and he’s fast building into a heavyweight.
Dirty South – The End (Soul Central Remix) – Vicious Recordings
Out this August, we loved remixing the iconic Doors riff which was used to massive effect on this crossover hit. This chart topping tune made a massive impact on its first time round, so we’ve kept this one beefier than our standard style and driven it all the way home to its epic breakdown that’ll tear up any system and excite the crowd. It was an honour to be included in the Vicious Recordings 30th year celebrations as they’re home to so many notable club classics and hits.
Rocco Rodamaal – Tbt3 (Dario D’Attis Remix) – Memories
Big fans of most things Dario turns out, and in this remix he holds the perfect tension as this tune continues to build. Chunky and deep, yet with a distinct drive that instantly translates to people getting down. We absolutely love this vibe and regularly play his material on our Galaxy show. You should definitely check out the original from way back which is a neat little afterhours groover.
Tony Lionni – Out Of Sight (Special Edit By Jerome Sydenham) – Kraftmatic
A great tune that fluently navigates the underground through to deeper edged clubs whilst also pushing the right energy across to translate massive overground floors when dropped at the right time. This mix actively jacks, pulses and pumps with a unique vocal loop that always draws you in. It works on a myriad of levels and it dropped like a bomb in Ibiza last month which was the ideal roadtest.
Crystal Waters & Soul Central ‘Love One Another’ will be released on Traxsource promo June 24th / Full release July 8th 2022 on Quantize Recordings.
