DJ W!LD - Shape U (RBL016)

DJ W!LD is back, this time on Crosstown off­shoot Rebellion with a stomping summer anthem ‘Shape U’ featuring Cari Golden on vocals. The original fuses the solid punch of a club weapon with the laidback feel of poolside disco, while the Fur Coat Remake gives the track an entirely different sheen ­ all chugging disco bassline, dark synths and pitched down vocals. An aptly named WILDER remix and dub from the producer ties up an unmissable EP, already approved by dance music royalty Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1.

The prolific DJ W!LD is one of France’s longest serving underground house heroes. As part of the Cocoon family and as a Circo Loco resident, DJ W!LD under various aliases has released on labels such as OFF Recordings, Robsoul, and his own imprints Catwash Records and W including debut album ‘Palace’ in 2011. Second album ‘D!RTY’ landed on Cabin Fever last year.

Originally from Dijon, W!LD’s passion for graffiti, street culture, disco, funk and hip hop led him into DJing, taking his name from cult 1983 film Wild Style. Relocating to Paris in 1996, DJ W!LD was instrumental in the French house scene, pouring his energies into the city’s underground club community and later becoming a globally successful artist and fixture at the best international clubs and festivals.

Fur Coat have been blazing a trail since their mighty debut album in 2012 on Crosstown Rebels ‘Mind Over Matter’ ­ also featuring Cari Goldenon vocals on the massive hit ‘You And I’. The fast­rising Venezuelan duo have been remixed by TEED and have a single forthcoming on Crosstown Rebels.

T.E.E.D. & Eats Everything - Lion, The Lion (CRM114)

Two giants in dance music, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (aka TEED) & Eats Everything, join forces for a beast of a release on Crosstown Rebels. The exclusive track on the forthcoming Get Lost VI mixed by TEED, ‘Lion, The Lion’is a ferocious dancefloor destroyer with a crackling, tough exterior pierced by rave FX and suspended by deeper elements creeping into the mix. Remixes come courtesy of Dutch producer and 4Lux boss, Gerd, who turns in a more swinging and suitably bass heavy Sub­Tech Mix with added synthline as well as a Deep Dub version.

TEED and Eats Everything have a kindred musical mindset, both with their own powerful and full­bodied brand of stomping party music and a mutual affection for early jungle and drum ‘n’ bass. Eats has already remixed TEED’s‘Tapes & Money’ and after getting introduced by mutual friends, TEED ended up in Eats’ studio for two days back in December laying down ‘Lion, The Lion’, which then featured on Eats Everything’s latest BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix.

NME named TEED “One of the UK’s most exciting young producers” when he delivered his debut electronic album, ‘Trouble’ in 2012. Awarded#1 Electronic Breakthrough Album Of The Year by iTunesalbum of the year in DJ Mag, it received critical acclaim in multiple end of year charts. Get Lost VI mixed by TEED will be released on Crosstown Rebels, 8th July. After remixing Foals at the start of the year, there are now a series of collaborations forthcoming this summer. Orlando has also produced ‘Warm Waters’ by Banks (Hype Machine No.1).

 Winning the Best Of British DJ Mag award in 2012 and gaining the highest new entry in the RA DJ poll at #13, Eats Everything has smashed into the big league both on the DJ and production front. With massive releases on Dirtybird, Pets Recordings and Futureboogie. Eats has recently completed the Edible Tour, will tour the U.S three times this year and has just remixed the legendary Nile Rodgers for the IMS.
