Curntables and Devon James partner up in a to create a new track, ‘Hips’, a serious, electro-tinged booty workout that drips with transatlantic flavour that aims to bombard and rumble the floors of many a sweaty club, complete with remixes by Franklyn Watts and Will Monotone.
Brooklyn-based artist Devon James works tirelessly within the underground music scene and has personal co-signs from Felix Da Housecat, Skream, and Dennis Ferrer. Playing alongside Moodymann and modern artists like Diplo at clubs such as Spybar in Chicago and Button Factory in Dublin, he is apparently an accomplished performer as he is sound engineer and producer.
Curntables, aka Gary Curran describes his craft as an on-going love and hate affair with many musical genres. He’s an underdog of the scene who has experienced all the ins and outs the industry had to offer and thankfully has still come out the other end to collaborate with Devon James. He is also known for his work as part of The Japanese Popstars, Confute, Two Hand Salute and Midnight Residents.
The three tracks are aimed to be full-on dance floor heaters. Leading with the original, it is clean and direct with a heavy kick and cheeky percussive parts. Following that, Franklyn Watts’ remix dirties the track with a distinctive bassline. Will Monotone’s acid remix distorts the kick, pitches the vocals all over the place and plants an acid breakdown a third of the way through the track which drips and reappears until the end.
It’s out 10 May, check it out below.
