Like You Do is a deep and luscious track with smooth vocals that will have your body moving from the opening bars. It has a sultry late night vibe that will keep the club dancers grooving until the sun comes up. Bristol based Richard Pring brings us the True2Life version with all of its glitz and live band feel – a classic soulful vibe, that will please the Soulful House die-hards. Amsterdam’s very own Lombard Street nails the brief with his groovy deep shuffle and thumping bassline, an alternative sexy night time flavour that will have the club bumping.

All three mixes complement each other to make this an outstanding package and must for every summer DJ set. Like You Do is a track where we definitely like what it does – it takes us on a deep soulful journey to a balmy heady place, where we can dance all of our cares away.

Like You Do – JC Unique released on Unique2Rhythm on 30 Jun 2017.

Circle of Funk, Lifford – Feelin It – The Remixes

Feelin it Remixes

Circle of Funk the innovative and industrious production quartet from Bristol are fast becoming favourites on the UK dance scene. In recent years they have worked with worldwide respected artists including Dawn Tallman, Robert Owens, Mr V, and Natasha Watts and since 2011 they have released several tracks featuring the talented Lifford Shillingford.

With his silky smooth vocals, Lifford is well known for his 2000 ‘It’s All About The Stragglers’ collaboration with Artful Dodger, having been the featured vocalist on ‘Something’, and ‘Please Don’t Turn Me On’. Lifford also has contributed to an extensive catalogue of tracks covering a multitude of genres including Drum and Bass, Soulful House, Soul and Reggae to name a few. He is an impassioned songwriter and his lyrics are often a reflection of his life journey and an expression of his deepest thoughts.

In 2011 Feelin It was the first collaboration between Circle of Funk and Lifford. The track beat was still under construction, and serendipitously, Lifford heard it. He was immediately moved by the party Afro and Latin vibes, and felt compelled to create his own magical lyrics. The track was publicly very well received and reached number 7 in the Official Urban UK Club chart.

The remix package is being released on the Slapped Up Soul label with contributions from top South African producer Luka and Bristol maestro Richard Pring (True2Life).

Luka’s remix turns the track completely on its head from a lively party track to a minimal Afro chillout cut that is Luka’s trademark. Although he adds a very different emotion to the proceedings, it works incredibly well and has a mesmerising charm that gets right inside the psyche of the listener.

True2Life provides a remix and a dub version, bringing a big sound to the mix, a lively UK garage touch with jazzy organ and a bouncing beat that will keep the dance floor grooving.

Circle of Funk have carefully chosen two very accomplished producers to remix one of the absolute gems of their back catalogue. The remixes are very different flavours of the original but both retain something very addictive about this track which has really done justice to the original composition. Feelin It (The Remixes) is a beautifully constructed package which is sure to be a hit on the summer dance floors around the world.
