The first lady of underground music Hannah Holland makes her debut on Crosstown Rebels with Fade To Me featuring her long standing collaborator, friend and fellow Londoner, Josh Caffe. Cult favourites Tuff City Kids aka Gerd Janson & Philip Lauer step up with a remix and dub to complete this stellar collection.
Having met on the dancefloor at one of Damian Lazarus’s parties in the early 00’s, Holland and Caffe bring their signature sound, which they describe as “sleazy as hell!” With a career in underground dance music spanning over a decade, Holland is a lady who understands what works. With her experience and Caffe’s vocals, Fade To Me is for those who long to be absorbed in the music.
German duo Tuff City Kids provide a tight remix that ups the tempo and twists the sound into their own, and conclude the EP with a sublime dub version. Having previously remixed Azari & III, Avalon Emerson, Sven Väth and Scuba to name a few this is a duo that are revered by their peers.
DJ, producer and founder of the labels Batty Bass and Native City, Hannah Holland is a solid figure within the underground dance scene. Earning her stripes through early London residencies at Trailer Trash and Dalston Superstore, she has since toured the world, had a monthly show on NTS and released on Nervous Records, Get Up Recordings and Classic among others.
Josh Caffe is an assured figure within the scene, having been a vocalist for numerous house and techno releases, DJ’ed at some of the biggest festivals, resident and founder of Night Sheen whilst also producing his own music.
