Surround Sounds have been quietly building a rep with several strong selling releases from The Revenge, Hot Toddy and Joey Negro. Next up is "Break My Heart" featuring the vocals of Seattle based Neo soul star Choklate.
The chunky mid tempo backing track to "Break My Heart" cheekily recreates the squelchy keyboard riff from the Wham classic "Everything She Wants", which obviously gives some instant familiarity but "Break..." adds a completely new song featuring Choklate's delightful vocal harmonies. The Extended Mix keeps the soulful vibe fully in tact while the Special Dubbb makes use of a heavyweight bassline and other key riffs for version that builds and drops beautifully to end with a vocal climax.
For a more instantly playable peak time dance floor version head for the Kola Kube NY House Mix. A trendy proto house drum groove complete with echoing handclaps sits beneath classic boogie synths and an ultra catchy bassline. That Wham riff is teased in and when it finally drops it drops its quite a moment - and likely to get the odd hand in the air this summer. Think of an unreleased Shep Pettibone dub of Wham or even Tensnake and you get the idea.
Last up are hot Berlin based production duo Session Victim. The guys are on a roll with releases like their excellent Million Dollar Feeling on Delusions of Grandeur last year. For their mix the musical direction is pure underground house with warm chords and Detroit style bass. Sure to appeal to fans of the more musical end of deep house.
