Ozzie London partners up with SolarTrak on new vocal house anthem ‘Never Over You’
The pair met via a mutual musical admiration for each other having supported each other’s music on the airwaves and in the clubs.
In true 2k18 style, they set about bouncing ideas and files to each other, finding the killer vocal, gradually building the melody and feel.
‘Never Over You’ is an uplifting house gem sparkling with an explosive energy built around a catchy female vocal. The temperature rises as the track build’s around a melodic synth bass, warm strings and hooky synth lines into a euphoric floor filling club anthem.
House stalwarts and all round geezers Scott Forshaw and Greg Stainer collaborate once again on their new single with vocalist Ramzi.
‘Now’ is an accomplished, forward-thinking house track that oozes quality. It’s a dance track with two feet firmly planted on the dance floor but it also sounds as equally at home on the airwaves. Lyrically beatific and musically innate it’s a rich blend of uplifting house music that should stand the test of time.
As Greg tells us:
“We were introduced to Ramzi for a possible collab through our management. When we heard the first draft of the song we loved the emotion and vibe. It’s a meaningful song all about living in the moment. We instantly knew we could turn it into a solid future house club track while keeping it radio friendly with the full vocal and piano intros complimenting the heavy bass and synth leads.”

Paul Morrell makes a welcome return to the Somn’thing stable with his most accomplished release yet.
No Ordinary Love was initially produced as an instrumental record, however shortly after Paul enlisted the vocal talents of Laura White (Vocalist for Sigala / Galantis ‘Love on Me’) who also gets a co-write credit. The original instrumental track was a moody melancholic chord lead record, and Laura’s vocals add class, and give the track the feel of classic dance track reminiscent of a Chicane production?!
On completion, there was only one remix outfit in mind – Grammy Award Winning duo K-Klass!
K-Klass are synonymous with the classic Piano House sound and in true KKlass style, they have provided a driving piano club mix which utilises the full vocal and adds a completely different take on the record. Simply awesome!
Finally, the man of the moment – James Bluck, has also been enlisted for remix duties, he provides a more upfront, commercial take on the piano sound, where his trademark organ bass line delivers once again. A “pumping’, slightly more energetic version definitely with an up for it crowd in mind.
A super strong package and killer release that deserves your full attention.
