One of the UK’s most exciting and versatile young talents, Route 94, is the next to make his mark on Crosstown Rebels with Mind, Body & Soul featuring a Body Rhythm Soul Version from NYC’s Joaquin Joe Claussell. Cohort and Leftroom boss Matt Tolfrey is also onboard, collaborating on second track Habitual.
“We are much more than we experience, feel and see in our physical states now. Is there even such a thing as time and everything just happens at once in the universe? This is the Mind, the Body and the Soul.” Route 94
The title track sets the tone of the release by heading straight into the late night hours with varied drum workouts and inspiriting keys that compliment the meaningful vocal. While Habitual, produced alongside fellow Londoner Matt Tolfrey who has been a mainstay DJ, producer and label owner in the underground house and techno scene for over a decade, is electric and sensual with an enticing bassline.
Damian Lazarus has enlisted influential NYC head and Ibadan label co-founder, Joaquin Joe Claussell to deliver a stunning Body Rhythm Soul Version, remixed in reference to his infamous Body & Soul Sunday parties. Here he delivers delectable keys and soothing brass tones as the serve of the day.
Route 94 aka Rowan Jones shot to fame, hitting No.1 in the UK charts with My Love featuring Jess Glynne. Keeping things largely underground, he followed with releases and remixes on Leftroom, Defected and Hot Creations. Overwhelming success ensued as he performed at the likes of fabric, Sub Club, Space, Ushuaia, DC10 and many more. With an abundance of new material about to drop and a packed calendar of gigs already booked in for the coming year, this is only the start for the talented artist.
