‘Loving You’ from Kenny Summit, Director’s Cut & Yasmeen, was originally unleashed last year on Good For You Records, hitting No.1 on Traxsource and stayed there for a whole month. Now it’s been remixes for this summer’s dancefloors, getting a makeover from top DJ/producers Dave Mayer & Husky.
Together the boys have turned out two feel-good mixes; one armed with a deep ‘90s bass groove, bumping beats and warm Rhodes that bubble under Yasmeen’s vocal; and a sparkling disco tinged chuggy dub mix, both of which should see further success for the track.
Director’s Cut is a production duo comprising of Frankie Knuckles and Eric Kupper. They first launched the project in 2011, signing to Nocturnal Groove, with the single ‘I’ll Take You There’, which featured long time friend and vocalist Jamie Principle on vocals. They have since gone on to reignite anthems such as Frankie’s ‘Your Love’, ‘The Whistle Song’ and Sylvester’s ‘Mighty Real’, to new productions including ‘Get Over U’ ft B Slade and ‘Let Yourself Go’ with Sybil, among many others.
From his early days spinning at NYC's infamous Limelight and Tunnel along side DJs like Moby, DJ Premier, Keoki and Supa DJ Dimitry, to present day where he overseas the operations of his record label, Good For You Records, Kenny Summit continues to focus on quality underground music. The releases on GFY along with his stable of artists speak for themselves: hiphop legends like Grand Puba and The Artifacts to house legends like Frankie Knuckles and Todd Terry, all present. Gearing up for a 20 city tour that spans from London to Bangkok in autumn/Fall of 2013, you can expect new tracks from Kenny Summit and his label every month.
