The ever-excellent No.19 Music team up with the enigmatic and highly talented Ali Love for a new
single featuring production and remix duties from Brigante….
No.19 Music continues to go from strength to strength, with recent releases from Konrad Black & Art
Department, Tone of Arc and Cameo Culture catching the imagination whilst the label’s Social Experiment
parties take the world by storm. Now Jonny White and his label team look to white-hot vocalist and songwriter
Ali Love whose work with the likes of Hot Natured and Crosstown Rebels has created such a stir.
Love has been a key player in electronic music for some time now, working alongside acid house legend Eon in
the band Ignition before signing to Columbia as a solo artist and hooking up with London’s Back Yard
Recordings. Over the last year he has seen his profile rocket, joining the Hot Natured crew for last year’s
anthemic ‘Forward Motion’ single and providing one of the big record of this summer alongside Luca C under
their Infinity Ink moniker. Looking forward, Ali will be working further with Hot Natured and will be recording his
next album for Damian Lazarus’ Crosstown Rebels imprint. This latest single sees Ali teams up with producer
Brigante to deliver two superb new cuts, Brigante also offering up his own remix on the second track.
The record opens with ‘Playa’, a deep and hypnotic, bass driven affair that fuses percussive elements and
understated melodies to create the base for Ali Love’s distinctively ethereal and soulful vocals, quality stuff from
beginning to end. The A side is complemented by the superb ‘Brigante’s Jungle’ a warm and haunting slice of
underground house music that once again showcases Ali’s vocals, as his incantations about the Jungle sit
against staccato vocal effects and old school Chicago inspired stabs.
Exclusively available on the vinyl release we have Seb Brigante’s remix of ‘Brigante’s Jungle’ that sees the
record taken into deep and twisted territory with the vocal heavily effected and the drums brought to the fore, a
perfect version to close this stunning single.
With each new signing, No19 Music seem to further open up the label’s direction whilst maintaining the highest
levels of quality and with this single from Ali Love they have done it again, enjoy!
