Data Vault – Need You

A nice easy one to start with today cos there's just the two mixes! It's also the debut release from a new label, which is always exciting.

In its Original form, Need You is a tuff-ish tech-house roller with the emphasis on the slightly Afro percussion and "need you" vocal, backed up by voice-as-instrument stabs and pushing synths. Remix duties are then taken care of by Terry Lee Brown Jr, in whose hands Need You becomes a far mellower and deeper affair, 7.5 minutes of pulse and chug with a dubby, 'tribal jazz' kinda feel.

Two quite different mixes, then, but both are strong dancefloor propositions, making for a very respectable start for the label.


Out: This week

About: This comes to you courtesy of brand new NYC-based imprint Undulate Recordings, which is headed up by Billy Disciple and Al Alvarez… the latter of whom also goes by Data Vault, funnily enough. Anyway, you can find them here, here and here (website/FB/Soundcloud)
