For our 34th release on Area Remote were happy to welcome our Canadian friends The Junkies and Nathan Barato to the Area Remote family.
THE JUNKIES style has continued to evolve over the years under the influence of various genres of electronic music, ranging from deep soulful house to techno and everything in between. Drawing from these has resulted in a sound that has made them a consistently present force in the Toronto club scene for over 10 years as well as play alongside some of the worlds most respected artists including the likes of Steve Lawler. 2009 has been a great year for The Junkies recognising their talents through a string of stellar releases and chart toppers; including the hugely successful D-Mode EP, a collaboration with Rawthentic Music head honcho Carlo Lio and their solo projects Ritmo and Quatro Uno Sei.
NATHAN BARATO has been a regular in the Toronto nightclub scene for nearly 15 years, gleaning inspiration from the club sounds and scenes from as far back as early 90's garage. Hes in heavy demand as a DJ in Toronto and since 2009 working hard in the studio with solo releases signed with Breakoutaudio, BWO, Local Music, his own label Roots And Wings plus some awesome collaborations such as this one.
WOW!: A badass bassline drills you deep into the club depths where its packed with heaving people and heavy mystery. Eerie relief from the vocal thrills make this thumping tune unforgiving and unforgettable.
FOR YOU ONE TIME: Meshed up sound bites give you an appealling groove to get your teeth in to, while the monster bass thumps keep your feet bus.
