ARTIST ———— Next Of Kin
TITLE —————Everything
REMIXERS ——Pete Moss, Jon Lee
LABEL ————Uniting Souls Music
RELEASE DATE ———June 5, 2017
Seattle label Uniting Souls Music reaches across the pond and grabs London’s Next Of Kin for “Everything”, a deep bass-house workout that’s sure to inspire some peak time floor action. A veteran producer under various aliases – previously holding down a radio show on Ministry of Sound – Next Of Kin has bounded forth under this latest nom-de-plume with top notch releases for Deep City Sound and Modern Revival alongside the likes of Doc Link, Demarkus Lewis, and Fred Everything. “Everything” masterfully meshes influences from deep and tech house as well as the late ’90s sound of UK garage to transmit a groovy late night roller. Vocal snippets deliver the catchy hook of the song’s title while a punchy, dominating bass line and cool spacey pads keep the rhythm deliriously flowing.
Pete Moss, a welcome recurring remixer for Uniting Souls, accents the main track with a version that expands on the lush vibe, featuring swelling synths and the vocal hits given a subtle, slightly ominous treatment. Seattle’s Jon Lee (Viva Recordings, NAM Recordings) is also on hand, providing a deep and moody remix of “Everything” that ebbs and flows with dynamic breakdowns and ringing musical passages. Along with Pete Moss’s version, this mix gives a distinct view of the main track, completing a package that works for a variety of after-hours DJ situations.
Peep the promo:
“I remember Dj’s making fun when I’d play a Todd Edwards track or an early MK production, Its funny how they now hail such classics, in my opinion they didn’t have the heart, they didn’t have that feeling that many have tried but few have managed to put into words”.
Hailing from London UK DJ/Producer Next Of Kin might be a new name to some but certainly is not new to this, under previous aliases held radio shows with Ministry of Sound, played across the UK and Internationally and under the current Pseudonym released on labels such as Deep City Sound and Modern Revival alongside the likes of Doc Link, Demarkus Lewis, and Fred Everything.
“I came up hearing the music that stemmed from Paradise Garage New York, the sound of Chicago, Frankie Knuckles, Todd Terry, Speed Garage… Music, Dj’ing, Producing I just had to be involved somehow”
In terms of style many of those influences can be heard along with that of the late 90’s early 2000’s Garage wave that swept the UK but even though producing Deep, Tech House is the focus the foundations are firmly in place.
No Diva-like superstar DJ attitude, I’m a music fan like everybody else, every so often I press buttons and keys in combination, chop, stretch, fade, reverse and good things happen, sometimes they don’t… and its frustrating but its all love and this is why I do it and I want to share it with as many people that feel the same way about it as I do now and did at the very start, and with the age of Technology and Social Media share it with as many people as possible connecting with each other.
