Jake Island’s sublime debut album delivers its devastating second single in the form of ‘Real Love’ hot on the heels of his debut smash ‘Do It Like This’. Showcasing the vocal talents of Ray Saint-Ville and keeping the remix quality high, the package includes 4 mixes from Rocco & Manuel De La Mare. As with the first single, this is quality House Music at its finest with more singles and remixes set to come in 2009.
The Original, taken straight off the album is an emotional Deep Houser with additional production coming from label boss Mark Knight and long term label artist Martijn ten Velden. First up on remix duty is the exceptional Rocco from France. Known for his remix work on labels King Street, Stealth & Freerange and his seminal remix of Cloud Kickers ‘Bring On The Night’, Rocco turns in a trademark remix; deep, emotionally charged, yet still directed at the dancefloor. Rocco’s Dub Mix takes on a different groove and offers another take on the Main mix and Instrumental. Manuel De La Mare steps up and offers two takes on Jake’s original. Deep stabs, heavy percussion, and tight production again lend itself to those who like their House deep, and guarantees not to disappoint.
Forthcoming singles from the album include ‘What If You Wanted More’ with remixes from Grum, Tensnake and the Average House Band (Mark Knight & Funkagenda).
