Here’s a new gem from one of the best voices in the business, the legendary Billie Ray Martin. She’s teamed up once again with Italian Pop-House producers Hard Ton to drop a track that is as rich as it is funky. Deep house grooves and massive vocals, that’s what you should be expecting.
Marilyn uses a Deep House vibe to deliver some atmospheric, dramatic synth work set to a classic late 80s House bassline and Roland rim-shots. Always enveloping, never too overstated, the track provides a hypnotic and subtle backing for some huge, theatrical vocal performances. Loaded with classy, and intricate, synth elements and a nostalgic Chicago undercurrent, Marilyn is timeless House.

Marilyn is taken from the Time To Jack EP, out now.

As you probably know by now Miss Billie Ray Martin has dropped another powerful House EP on the world in the form of the ‘Sold Life’/’Fantasy Girl’ double A-side.
The EP has a classic early 90’s House sound with a contemporary twist. Produced by Hard Ton the EP sees Billie going back to her classic house roots with a bit of Chicago and a bit of Acid in the mix. The B-side is a cover of Phuture Phantasy Club’s ‘Fantasy Girl’ and gets a low-down piano led remix from Snuff Crew, who’s hard, hypnotic groove brilliantly plays against Billie’s impassioned vocals.

Like a coming together of everything that’s great about electronic music, one-time Nerdcore, Electro Hip-Hop ladies Scream Club and deep synth reMixer Electrosexual have teamed up to drop a limited edition double A-side 12” featuring two tracks from Scream Club’s, Electrosexual produced, forthcoming album.
‘Break You Nice’/’Screaming And Crying’ is the distilled essence of the wonder that was electronic music in the 80’s and early 90’s. Like B-Boy Electro mixed with early Acid House it’s supported by reMixes from Divider, Leonard De Leonard and Hard Ton.
Hard Ton’s reMix continues the electro pioneer genre clash, with vocals reminiscent of Cybotron and a burbling TB-303 bassline.
