Venezuelan production duo Fur Coat is back on Crosstown Rebels, this time armed with the sultry West Coast tones of Cari Golden and bomb of the season, ‘You and I’. Calling in rising star Amirali for remix duty, this essential release has got prime Miami anthem written all over it.
The original ‘You And I’ has long been slaying dance floors at the hands of Damian Lazarus, cloaked in mystery until Art Department let the cat out of the bag at Mexico’s BPM Festival, cementing the track as highly sought after DJ weapon, and leaving ‘Fur Coat’ and those suggestive lyrics on everyone’s lips. A-grade addictive groove, ‘You And I’ is the epitome of deep and sleazy bassline house with the added distinction of Cari Golden’s velvety vocals building an allegorical story of chemistry and intoxicating love.
Exploding onto the scene this year is Iranian/Canadian producer Amirali, already winning over legions of fans with his first two tracks ‘My Way’ and ‘Beautiful World’ and about to secure his place amongst stars of 2012 with debut album ‘In Time’ – out on Crosstown Rebels this Spring. His sound, a heady mix of tech, funk and electronica, Amirali takes ‘You And I’ into a deeply emotive dream world of epic synth-laden melodies whilst Cari’s voice becomes airborne and ethereal.
Fur Coat have been buried deep in the studio of late, crafting their debut LP out on Crosstown later this year. If ‘Space Ballad’ and ‘You And I’ are anything to go by, it will be a seamless collection of tracks to feed the dancefloor all summer long. Growing up streets apart in Venezuela, Sergio Muñoz (Delete) and Israel Sunshine aka Fur Coat joined forces in 2010 after meeting on South America’s blossoming dance music scene and have together mastered the art of dancefloor sorcery. Cari Golden is a classically trained musician from Los Angeles California where she works as a studio vocalist and songwriter. She began collaborating in the EDM world four years ago and has since had several critical successes with Pan-Pot’s Captain ‘My Captain’, DJ T’s ‘City Life’. With this imminent Fur Coat smash, Cari Golden could also be the voice of Miami WMC 2012.
