Latest Release on Barry Ashworths Westway Records
Sangers & Ra feat N’FA ‘Too Hot, Too High’ (Westway 035)
Remixes by Terry Hooligan & Filthy Rehab, Funkanomics and Keith Mackenzie
Australia’s finest, Sangers & Ra return to Westway for their second release after the last one, ‘Nasty’, crashed into the Beatport top ten. ‘Too Hot, Too High’ features N’FA of infamous hip-hop crew 1200 Techniques, and comes with some top-notch remixes too.
N’FA blazes hype over the raspy electronic bassline and bad-ass beats, giving shout-outs to Sangers & Ra and the Westway Records posse, b-boys, poppers and lockers, and anyone else who appreciates a rocking party. Just back from a European tour, Sangers & Ra are best known for their Breaks & Enter parties in Australia, but this release is certainly going to accelerate their international reputation immensely.
‘Too Hot, Too High’ comes with its own video, shot at the incredible KaZantip festival in the Ukraine a couple of months ago. See it here:
Terry Hooligan teams with Filthy Rehab for a filthy bass music re-rub of the track, tinged with elements of Major Lazer and hype electronics. US breakbeat stalwart Keith Mackenzie adds a bit of a ‘dirty Dutch’ topline and flittery synth to his reinterpretation, while the Funkanomics overhaul goes down a pounding electro-house route.
‘Too Hot, Too High’ gets a Beatport exclusive release on November 7th, with a general release on all the other download sites a fortnight later (November 21st). This is another great release from Westway – please let us know about any chart action, DJ plays or reviews. And it goes without saying – please do not share.
