Nina Provencal ‘Soul Saviour’

(Jihad Muhammad Re-Production includes DJ Fudge Remix)
MAKIN009 – Digital Release

As we head into autumn, Makin’ Moves continue to keep you warm serving up more soulful heat with our next release from Nina Provencal ‘Soul Saviour’. Nina makes a welcome return to the label following her ‘Breakdown’ release, which she featured on earlier this year with producers Solution Soul.  Nina’s sublime soulful vocals and songwriting are creating a stir on the house scene, with further tracks to be released later this year. When speaking with Nina about what’s in store for 2014 she said, “ I really would like to continue to make quality house music, and keep pushing my boundaries, house is so versatile and transcending, I hope to continue working with producers and labels all over the world”

‘Soul Saviour’ originally featured on Nina’s 2004, self written album  ‘Good Stuff’ and our good friend in New Jersey Jihad Muhammad had always liked the track and wanted to re-produce it for the house crowd. Having a history of creating fantastic productions for his own label, Movement Soul and numerous other remixes we put Jihad to work with the original vocal and the results were amazing that all parties agreed that the track needed to be released.

Jihad has introduced a new energy to the track with his beats and combined with Nina’s subtle soulful vocals its worked on every dance floor we have played on this summer from London to New York, Japan and back.

DJ Fudge, also a close friend and one of the hot producers right now currently residing in Hong Kong gives us 3 soulful mixes all great alternatives from the original.

Exclusive promos will be available via from 29th October. Full release 1st December 2013.

Gianluca Pighi & Massimo Paramour feat. Ahmad Larnes ‘The Well’ (includes Tyrone Francis Remixes)

MAKIN013 – Digital Release

Gianluca Pighi is deep. The Italian DJ/Producer is dedicated to music further than a hobby or even a career. The lifetime obsession Gianluca has to finding the perfect beat is only comparable to true love. He grew up on Public Enemy, The Temptations, Deodato and Barry White and by 14 he was mixing on pirate radio and by 17 he was getting paid to play music at parties.

Massimo Paramour is a musical prodigy. After studying music formally for many years, Massimo dove into the club scene of Italy, carving out a space for himself as a consistent professional. During a trip to New York in the early 2000’s, he met Ahmad Larnes and convinced the vocalist to travel to Italy for work. There they met with Gianluca and had immediate musical chemistry. This was how the three magic pieces came together for the magical single, “The Well”–Gianluca’s technical expertise, Massimo’s musicianship and Ahmad Larnes’ voice.

Makin’ Moves is proud to present this gem, appropriate for clubs and intimate listening. Deep and brilliant, “The Well” packs a natural, continuous energy. Ahmad’s voice adds light to the driving drums and heavenly synthesizer, carrying the listener on a voyage. The centerpiece lyric of the track, “my love is deep just like the well,” is a simple metaphor that carries power. The love of another, the love of music, the love of artistry, true love goes deep to replenish the soul.

Also featured in the package are some hot remixes from BKNY’s Tyrone ‘Mixologist’ Francis from New York taking things more deeper and ready to bring you up at 6am as the sun comes up!
