DESCRIPTION

The dexterous Citizenn drops the first single, ‘Tied’, from his forthcoming album for Crosstown Rebels.
House music futurist Citizenn will unveil his debut artist album on 15th June for the groundbreaking label from Damian Lazarus, Crosstown Rebels. Entitled ‘Human Interface’, it considers the coexistence between humanity and machinery. The first single, ‘Tied’ is a trip into house’s classic years, raw with diva-esque vocals from Aisha and heavy classic New York House flavour, while the B Side track, ‘Together (As a People)’ gives a taste of Citizen’s more techno influence.

Starting his musical life as a drummer, Laurence Blake’s Citizen alias didn’t come into play until after a successful career in video directing, working with the likes of Aluna George and Little Boots. Awarded the title of DJ Mag’s ‘Breakthrough DJ’ in 2013, Citizen has had releases on Kerri Chandler's Madtech label, Waze & Odyssey's Street Tracks and London-based Love Fever Records. He recently appeared on 2020 Recordings with a stellar Hercules & Love Affair remix.

Watch out for a following remix 12” of Tied featuring reworks by Hot Creations latest shooting star, Denney, widely accomplished house music producers, Murk and re-edit champion, Adesse Versions cast their own flair and finesse on the material
