Fans of British breakbeat artists the Freestylers got to ring in the New Year a second time with this morning's release of the group's single "Falling." Out on Rub-A-Duck Recordings and featuring vocals by fellow Brit Laura Steel, "Falling" is the third track release from the Freestylers’ latest album "The Coming Storm" that hit digital store shelves in June 2013. Along with the original version of the single, which features a bass sound reminiscent of their 2011 hit "Cracks," the Freestylers have selected the trio of the Stanton Warriors, AfterHours and Wickaman to each take their own stylistic spins on the track.
Aston Harvey and Matt Cantor, the duo that make up the Freestylers, have been producing music together for nearly twenty years since joining forces in 1996. And while they have collectively covered one end to the other and back of the bass music spectrum, their involvement in the British dance music scene goes far beyond that - dating back to the 1980s. From live band to soundsystem to DJ duo, Harvey and Cantor have built a reputation for delivering standout performances at both major festivals and nightclubs alike.
From the tribal house drums and breakbeat sounds of the Stanton Warriors to the soulful, deep house of the Afterhours to drum and bass FX of Wickaman, fans of the Freestylers will find something if not everything to like about "Falling" featuring Laura Steel.
The Stanton Warriors remixes are available now exclusively on Beatport here for two weeks and thereafter on iTunes. The AfterHours / Wickaman remixes will be available Hanuary 27 exclusively on Beatport for two weeks and then on iTunes.
A complete album of all eight remixes of "Falling" will be available February 20 on both Beatport and iTunes. The album can be pre-ordered here.
