Glowing like the Northern Lights Erkki offers two great mixes on this release: The Original has a more future house flavour. Big builds, a slammin’ bass line and synth parts that peak a drop to epic proportions take you on an melodic ride. Erkki goes ‘Deeper’ on the flip side offering a deep house vibe that keeps the uplifting melody and hooks from the Original Mix but this time complimented by some subtle yet effective added almost tropical melodic nuances that make more than the sum of its parts.
Yet another very accessible and playable release from the ever consistent Somn’thing Records stable
Erkki R ‘Your Love’ is released today, 13th April 2018.

D.O.N.S. are back and kick off 2018 with a massive new vocal deep house gem.
‘How Will I Know’ sees German producer and self-confessed anglophile D.O.N.S. finally fulfil a longtime ambition to work with the legendary vocalist Alexandra Prince (famed for the seminal club record Gadjo – So Many Times amongst others). The pair have been good friends for over 20 years and never really had the chance to work together, until now. The idea to cover ‘How Will I Know’ was born out of Oliver (D.O.N.S.) yearning to go back to his house music routes. Inspiration propagated by tracks such as Inner City’s ‘Big Fun’, Kadoc’s ‘The Night Train’ and even ‘Pump Up The Jam’ by Technotronic. Added to this, he has always thought about working on a Whitney Houston track who is still to this day she´s one of the greatest singers for me of all time.
The package comes with a Tech Rave Remix by Bakerloo (coming soon) and from Lebanon based dance music pioneers and Grammy nominated artist – The Game Chasers. They have delivered a future house driven, instantly pleasing remix in their signature sound. There are also two bonus tracks. Remixes of ‘Rolling Deep’ released initially by D.O.N.S. in 2010 and brought up to date by Styline and Heartsaver (watch this space!).
The James Bluck Radio Edit of Paul Morrell’s new track, ‘Desire’ is out for streaming and you can go listen on Spotify here.
Paul Morrell delivers the first real club and radio dance anthem of 2018.
This killer vocal house track penned by Paul and #1 artist Kelli Leigh (responsible for hits that include; More Than Friends (James Hype), I Got You (Duke Dumont) now features the superb Indigo Marshall. She delivers a perfect vocal performance, mature beyond her years, to create an uplifting future house anthem of epic proportions.
With a mouthwatering package at hand, James Bluck takes 1st class honours, turning the original into a bona fide dance hit. Hot off the heals of remixing the likes of The Disciples and Mike Mago he brilliantly blends and loops Indigo’s vocals with his uplifting trademark piano’s, and a big bass line to create a catchy dance-pop song with bags of crossover potential.
