Batty Bass boss Hannah Holland has just sent us the latest offering from the label from New York’s The Carry Nation. With remix offerings from herself, Luke Howard & Severino and Al B, we just know it’s going to get a lot of love within these four walls. Have a listen and check out the official word from Hannah below…
The Batty Bass New York Series showcases some of the legendary talent that serves the city’s underground house scene, ‘This Bitch Is Alive’, as The Carry Nation’s debut tune announced. These artists and tracks are to be heard in secret loft spaces, where voguers carry on and on til sunrise and beyond.
Who lives in a House Like This? New York’s finest… DJ Nita & Will Automagic. They are nothing other than legendary expert DJs and dancefloor magicians , their potent combination as The Carry Nation has literally created dancefloor gold dust. Debuting the incredible ‘This Bitch Is Alive ft. Viva Ruiz’, they carry on to their 2nd release with Batty Bass, ‘House Like This’. Bouncy basslines, congas and a groove that penetrates the dancer to make them werk the floor and ignite the party. ‘Oh it was wonderful, Build your house of the future, House like this’ announces the vocal, giving us The Carry Nation’s own slice of future New York house.
Label boss Hannah Holland’s House Like This remix serves up touches of acid thunder, a pokey baseline and magnetic snare rolls, building the house with an element of UK old skool for a late night deep affair.
London legends, Luke Howard & Severino (half of Horse Meat Disco) have expertly taken This Bitch is Alive into a techy hypnotic bitch of an alive remix. Late night strings, rims, claps and snares march the dancefloor deep into the night.
Al B’s New York flavour for ‘This Bitch Is Alive’ takes us back to the era of Sound Factory with a full on tribal werk out. Al B made this mix back last year and the response on the dancefloor has been nuts , particularly from NYC’s runway ballroom scene kids. It would only be right to spread the love to all the floors!
