3) Luke Solomon Dub
4) Bit Thief Remix
5) Komka Remix
6) Sam Young & I Sancho Mix
New York and Berlin duo The Glass come with the second single from their upcoming album on NYC’s Plant Music label.
In the wake of the summer hit ‘Wanna Be Dancin’’ which had huge support from Club and Radio DJs all over the globe (Pete Tong and Rob Da Bank both banged it on Radio One) vocalist Dominique Keegan (New York) and producer Glen Brady (aka Dj Wool/Berlin) come with ‘Superhero’ a pop leaning dancefloor track with an infectious hook. The boys just came off a three week North American tour and are back out in October with dates in Germany, Switzerland and Norway.
Originally both from Dublin, Ireland, The Glass first reared their heads with 2005’s ‘Won’t Bother Me’ and their collaborations on 2020 Soundsystem ‘No Order’ album as well as their infamous ‘Sound of Young New York’ compilations spawned from Keegan’s now defunct Plant Bar. Having taken a short hiatus they are back with a new look, feel and sound.
‘Superhero’ laments the rise and fall of every lunatic ‘bouncing off the walls’ on a Friday night and the track comes with a slew on sexy remixes by both established and hot up and coming producers.
About the remixers:
ESL Recording’s Ursula 1000 plays up the hip hop elements in the original production with 80s electro feel, shimmering hats and a 90s ravey vibe.
UK’s Luke Solomon, founder of Classic recordings with Derrick Carter, and all round House Music champion. Luke’s mix is an old skool rave dub with pulsing percussion, trippy synths and a wonderful retro bassline.
Newcomer Bit Thief brings an amazing Nu House remix to the table with an incredible conga heavy mix which includes tenor sax honks and much much more…
Brasil’s Komka take a slight Tech House approach with hints of German Minimalism.
London’s Sam Young & I Sancho bring a big room Electro House mix to the floor crushing kicks and a dreamy synth melody.
