Love & Money front man James Grant has collaborated with producer Gordy Goudie to form The Korvids, releasing a dance album "... for the older generation who might want to bust a move once more in honour of their younger selves." James says, "I wanted to be someone else for a while. Sound different. Write different. It can be dreary being me all the time... I sing most of my vocals on the record in falsetto, which, as we know, is the international language of disco."
The Korvids marry their love of disco and 70's funk with influences such as Deodato, Massive Attack, Miles and anything else that takes their fancy.
After the success of their debut release Beach Coma, which was picked up by Sirius US radio and remixed by Balaeric legend Jose Padilla, the duo released Bad Faith, a beauteous cut of late 70's disco remixed by Love & Money and Steely Dan's producer Gary Katz.
Hot on the heels of their debut album the industrious Glasgow duo present mini-anthem "Tender Tyrannies". The track features the smooth and powerful vocals of Sarah Brown. The original seamlessly melds a big vocal, jazzy Rhodes, slick swinging grooves, shimmering strums and a overdriven guitar solos.
Our triumvirate of heroes on Nangs big summer tune are UK Producer and DJ Pete Herbert, Bali based musician partner Martin Denev and legendary US House vocalist Robert Owens. They steer their sonic empire to peak-hour, prime time house territory with the epic "Pass Me By".
Next up on Nang we are pleased to present the latest stomper from West Country, UK based collective, Situation. It is a jaunty vocal-house number which features the fine soul vocal talents of regular contributor Andre Espeut.
The track "Standing Here Baby" which recently featured on their debut album on Nang here gets the remix treatment for maximum dance floor manoeuvres.
Its deepest winter in London as we write this. The heroes of this release (UK Producer and DJ Pete Herbert and Bali based musician Martin Denev) are currently in Bali on the other side of the world. They are there in the sun and hot balmy evenings finishing off their album and we are stuck in the snow and sleet of a near-freezing east-end London.
It's a hot one. Sunshine here we come.
