DESCRIPTION

OUT HEAR AUDIO is back with another far out offering for the modern dancefloor.  The second release for the label this year following the killer YAMBEE! - Chemical Love/Natural Off.

Cambridge based producer Dave Rendle aka 'System Status' has been involved in music since the mid nineties and producing seriously since May 2010. It was Daves creation under the System Status moniker that caught the attention of DJ/Producer Christopher Tubbs, one half of Atlantic Conveyor and Untracked Recordings. Released on Untracked in November 2010 with the rock solid slice of bare bones disco 'Montparnasse' on the flip, 'Downtime' was Daves debut single and a lifetime goal achieved and crystalised in limited 180 gram wax.  The track has received airplay from Michael Ruetten and Gilles Peterson.

Dave has now emerged with the track TAKE ROOT from his concept project 'The Detroit Urban Gardening Ensemble'. The track took inspiration and samples from the Julien Temple documentary 'Requiem for Detroit' about the decay and industrial collapse of Americas fourth largest city. Ashley Beedle heard TAKE ROOT while on the way to a gig with Dave and infamous Nottingham DJ/Promoter Beane Noodler. Ashley loved the track and thought it would be perfect for OUT HEAR AUDIO and after a few pound coins were exchanged the deal was done! TAKE ROOT comes in its original spellbinding form of aural art and Beedle throws in a lovely rework for the beatheads - rocking out the drums and cutting back the vocal samples while adding his trademark magic.  The track is an analogue funky squelch for the modern soulboy.
