Baltimore singer, songwriter Dana Weaver makes a welcome return to the Makin’ Moves label fresh and on a high following her hit ‘My Freedom’ with producers Souldynamic which recently hit number one on the Soulful Traxsource Top Ten chart! Dana first appeared with Phatfrank on our fourth release on the label ‘Hot’ which was a firm favourite at the Winter Music Conference in Miami in 2013 and looks like 2015 could be a very big year for this talented lady.
Here she returns with Neal Conway on production duties, Neal also hails from Baltimore the home of many influential soulful house producers. He started out DJing under the guidance of his mentor Thommy Davis (Basement Boy Music). From there, Thommy brought Neal into the Basement Boy family and was the member behind a number of early Original Basement Boy Production hits!
Last year Neal and Dana sat down and wrote some songs together. We were fortunate enough to hear this particular song in it’s original format as a nu soul track and we loved it so much we decided we wanted to release it with remixes. Some of you might spot the sample used, “Nothing Can Stop Me” by Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr. (from the 5th Dimension)
Neal brings a fantastic uptempo soulful groove to his version and will certain warm up many a dance floor during these cold winter months! This release also features hot remixes from Brooklyn’s DJ Spinna who brings a real and bounce and energy to his mixes, already these have been a firm favourite with the likes of Louie Vega and Danny Krivit.
This release will be available as an exclusive promo from Traxsource.com on Monday 2nd March, full release on other digital stores from Monday 30th 2015.
