George FitzGerald ‘I Can Tell By the Way You Move’ (Paul Woolford Remix) Preview So what do you get when you cross George Fitzgerald's 'I Can Tell By The Way You Move' with Paul Woolfords 'Untitled', well exactly that, two big summer anthems in one. For 6min 40 Woolford puts aside the techno stylings and digs out the humble keyboard for yet another enjoyable jaunt down 90's piano laden memory lane, reminding us that between his forthcoming Special Request LP 'Soul Music' and his summer smash 'Untitled', that he is a serious contender for 2013 honours, which rather alarmingly are only a few months away.....

George Fitzgerald – Boiler Room (June 2013) Download Alongside Midland, Joy Orbison, and KiNK, George Fitzgerald is one of the most consistent producers out there in our humble opinion, and if you've had the chance to catch him live, you'll know he's a pretty damn fine selector also. One of those DJs who doesnt just know his way around a synth patch, but also understands the dynamics of well judged DJ set. Thankfully on this Boiler Room outing we are treated to Fitzgerald crafting his own vibe, without the limitations of b2b getting in the way, and the mix is hugely stronger for it. Whether you are new or an established Fitzgerald convert we ... Read more / Preview track

Boiler Room – Scuba b2b George Fitzgerald When a set ends with Madonna ‘Vogue’, you know people had a good time..... (Boiler Room 21st Feb 2013). As DJs and Promoters ourselves the mark of a truly great set normally results in something being played that in the cold light of day you would normally think, "I cant get away with that", however when the crowd are feeding off your every move there comes that realisation that the guilty pleasure you've always secretly wanted to play could actually become a reality. We heard it from Shinichi Osawa in 2009 when he dropped 'Dancing Queen', on paper horrific, in the moment couldnt of ... Read more / Preview track

George Fitzgerald – Needs You EP (Hypercolour) George Fitzgerald keeps the quality coming on his latest EP for Hypercolour. The 'Needs You' EP features two originals and a remix from Deetron, who's Essential mix we recently featured on BBB. Title track 'Needs You' is undoubtedly the star of the show, opening with a plaintive riff and vocal touches that could have been sampled from an asthmatic porn star. The seemingly innocuous drop into a bounding portamento bass line masks the flexing of Fitzgerald's considerable dance floor muscle. On anything less than a full soundsystem the meandering chords and lazy vocal will be enough to ... Read more / Preview track

Leon Vynehall – Gold Language / Dont Know Why (ManMakeMusic) Brighton based Leon Vynehall delighted many a critique and DJ last month with his Mauve EP on Well Rounded Records. In particular lead track Mauve caught the imagination with its combination of warm early evening chords alongside a late night acidic bassline and mid 90's piano riff. Such was the quality of this track that Resident Advisor gave it 3.5/5 and Juno voted it May's No.1 Bass release. So what better time to leak details of your next release on George Fitzgeralds ManMakeMusic imprint. At present only the B-Side 'Dont Know Why' is available to preview, however this in itself is an ... Read more / Preview track
