Seminal Mood II Swing production remixed by UK cutting edge Producer Pearson Sound for Nervous Records.
One of the most memorable House Music anthems from NYC’s “golden era of house” has been given the 2016 treatment by Pearson Sound. “Learn 2 Luv “ features lead vocals by one of House Music’s greatest voices, Kim English. Originally produced by Mood II Swing in 1997, it quickly became a favourite of legendary producer Francois K, who subsequently added his “Atmospheric Mood” mix to the package.
With Nervous Records currently celebrating its 25th year in operation, Pearson Sound went through the catalogue with the idea of putting his distinctive sound to one of these classic NYC house jams. As one third of the team behind the Hessle Audio label, David Kennedy’s Pearson Sound moniker has become synonymous with cutting edge UK dancefloor music. The result of this collaboration between Nervous and Kennedy is his remix of “Learn 2 Luv,” released on 12” vinyl on Dec 9 on Nervous Records.
On the flip side is an equally forward thinking remix by Supernova of a classic Nervous release, the Black Moon hip hop anthem “How Many Emcee’s (Must Get Dissed),” re-titiled “Must Get This.” Supernova are an Italian DJ team andproduction duo consisting of “Emijay” Nencioni and Giacomo “G.O.D.I” Godi. They have been a force in house music over the past decade, both through their highly popular remixes and productions and their label Lapsus.
Nervous has been unique throughout its 25 lifespan in its ability to release genre – defining music in many different areas of music, including house, hip hop and techno. That openness to new sounds is well represented in this remix, where Supernova has masterfully combined a storming house music track with a vocal from one of NYC’s most famous MC’s, Buckshot of Black Moon.
