12 Stories are Mark Jenkyns (Hot Creations, Dogmatik) and Christopher Sylvester (Inxec) a newly formed duo in collaboration with NYC vocalist Digitaria on breakthrough track "Bright Lights". It's a peak time main room house jam featuring hip house rhythms and an infectious synth brass melody that's sure to work a dancefloor; trust us! The wacky electro house experiment "Cutoff" follows through in great fashion, as well as two killer remixes of "Bright Lights". The Walker & Royce remix is a bumping electro house rendition reminiscent of Will Clarke or the Dirtybird sound, which is so in right now. But for us it's the Scurrillous remix which is really on the money; turning the track into killer acid house anthem!
Emerging star out of Leeds Denney is still hot from recent releases for Hot Creations and Poker Flat and now makes his debut on the legendary Steve Lawler's Viva Music with some slinky tech house grooves set to explode on the island or any or other beach party for that matter! "On & On" features a tight rhythm beneath a bouncy, razor sharp bassline and powerful diva vocals; ticks all the right boxes. The "Monday Club Mix" gets a bit more on the late night tech house tip; a bit darker and sleazier. The legendary Justin Robertson of Lionrock fame lends his hand on a deft remix; the "Deadstock 33s Remix" is a bleepy minimal groove with a resonating, hands in the air melody that sounds somewhere between Marc Houle and Will Clarke. Finally "This Is Music" is a grinding, squelchy 303 acid stormer that even still manages to squeeze in some diva vocals; mental! The Waifs & Strays remix takes the acid into deeper and darker territory with another rolling late night groove that'd appeal to fans of Gruuv or Saved.
