The New Sins are a London based outfit comprised of New Young Pony Club’s Lou Hayter and composer Nick Phillips. They released their single Lights Down in summer 2014, a burbling House groover that has now been given a new lease of life by a couple of the most consistently quality producers around; Waze & Odyssey. Lights Down is due for a re-release, with a loaded reMix package, at the end of this month on Defected.
From the first bar this tune is an infectious jackin’ House tune. Riding a skippy warehouse beat, Waze & Odyssey deliver deep style basslines and euphoric lead synths. All accompanied by snatches of the originals vocals repeated to mantra effect, the tune is definitely one to keep the dancefloor moving. The sweeping breakdown is the icing on the cake; there’s no stopping this one.
♫ The New Sins – Lights Down (Waze & Odyssey reMix)
London outfit The New Sins newest release is dropped last month on Tigersushi, it’s a slick 80s DiscoPop tune that sees the duo of New Young Pony Club’s Lou Hayter and Nick Phillips taking on a UB40 classic and giving it a 303 based Boogie going over.
The New Sins’ version of Don’t Break My Heart glides out of the speakers like liquid audio. With a laid back, vintage, beat and a burbling Acid bassline underpinning the track, the silky pads and Lou’s sultry vocal shimmy across the tune with an effortless cool. Quite Minimal, but never sounding like it, this is smooth ElectroPop at it’s best. Add a few nice Dubby touched, a nod to UB40’s Reggae version and you’ve got a winner, even more so with the Dubbed out B-side version. Alongside finishing up The New Sins’ album, Lou has also embarked on another project, teaming up with AIR’s JB Dunckel called Tomorrow’s World, which should produce some exciting results.
