2021 welcomes the arrival of New York-based imprint Revival, with the debut EP coming courtesy of Jansons as he delivers ‘Heartbreaker’. The label aims to become one to watch across the year ahead and beyond as they ‘inject the soul and foundations of dance music back into today’s modern landscape.’
With an ethos of unearthing hidden tracks and possible rising stars, whilst creating a transatlantic bridge between the soulful sounds of New York and the grooves of London, this month sees the collective build on events with the likes of Loco Dice and Cuttin’ Headz pairing Jesse Calosso and Jean Pierre, plus their forthcoming 10+ artist Revival NY Opening Ceremony live stream via Desert Hearts as they welcome the first release on their new label from the UK’s Jansons.
An artist that is already delivering material via labels including Hot Since 82’s Knee Deep In Sound, Yousef’s Circus Recordings, and Richy Ahmed’s Four Thirty Two, alongside his and Richy’s own LoveHrtz project, he now opens his 2021 account as he launches ‘Heartbreaker’.
A groove-heavy cut drawing on soulful vocals, bass guitar licks and disco-fuelled melodies, the track welcomes a sun-soaked production, whilst the vinyl-only ‘Alternative Mix’ sees the introduction of synths and basslines.
It’s out 12 February on Revival New York.
