No.19 Music looks towards the first release of 2012, teaming up with hotly tipped Mexican DJ/Producer Louie Fresco for the first single from his debut album, complete with a superb Russ Yallop remix!
At this stage in its ascendency there is little more to be said about No.19 Music. The label co-owned by Jonny ‘Art Department’ White and Nitin has, in a few short years risen to become one of the most hyped and respected labels around, and with releases in 2011 from the likes of Soul Clap, Maceo Plex, Tanner Ross & Lee Foss it has established itself as a force to be reckoned with.
Rather than basking in their successes to date, Jonny White has been seeking out new talent to join the label’s already impressive roster of artist. His latest signing is the hotly tipped Mexican DJ/Producer Louie Fresco. He has recently remixed for the likes of Defected, Ali Love and Om Music and was responsible for a massive remix for Modern Amusement on No.19 earlier in 2011 that sat at No1 on the Beatport Indie/Disco chart for a month.
The ‘So Good EP’ is Fresco’s first solo artist release and a great taster for what we can expect from his debut album in 2012. He kicks proceedings off with the superb ‘So Good’, a disco tinged house workout that fuses old school bass, keys and percussion with a heavily effected vocal sample to create a floorfilling monster. It’s easy to see why this, along with the rest of the EP, has been a mainstay in the Art Department DJ set for the last few months.
Next up we have Crosstown artist Russ Yallop at the controls, remixing ‘So Good’ into a deep and spacious version that is an instant hypnotic winner. Much of the funk/disco elements are stripped away leaving an electronic mix that is perfect for the twisted early morning hours. Finally Louie Fresco offers up closing number, ‘Owl Night’, a techy and loop driven workout that uses tight vocal edits and dark bass tones to create an intense cut, quality stuff. Fresco’s album will be the first artist long player from No.19 since Kenny Glasgow’s sublime ‘Taste for the Low Life’ and if this single is anything to go by we are in for treat!
