MAKIN047 – Wipe The Needle ft. Lifford ‘Rise Up’ (Kai Alce Remix)

Rise Up was one of our most popular played releases of last year and is still getting alot of radio support from the likes of Solar and Mi Soul Radio. Produced by Wipe The Needle aka Lee Gomes this man has a great last 12 months and is on fire right now with his club smash Found You.
We felt there was another remix in this song so we enlisted the help of Atlanta’s main man, Kai Alce who’s also been doing some amazing productions. Kai runs the NDATL Muzik label and has creating a real storm recently working with some fantastic artists including Miranda Nicole, Emdee Brown and The DangerFeel Newbies on Defected Records a new sound that we really dig and we’re very pleased with this particular remix he’s done for us.

MAKIN045 – Aisling Iris ‘He Lover’ (includes Crackazat Remix)

Aisling means “dream” or “vision” in Gaelic, It’s also the birth name of this particular Irish song writing vocalist living in London.

Her lyrics and voice have been described as possessing an almost conversational intimacy, with a smooth contralto that she deftly wraps around the melodies, swooping up every so often to a lilting jazzy falsetto.

Aisling has worked with some of the top names in the soul, hip hop and jazz world including Roots Manuva, Domu. More recently she has worked with the likes of Phil Asher and the Urban Soul Lab.

Hey Lover was a track she wrote and recorded some years ago with one of the original Bugz in the Attic producers Afronaut, one of the original broken beat pioneers. This is a match made in heaven, Orin working his technically wicked drums and Aisling’s sexy haunting vocals tempting you over the top, works like butter on toast. The vocal twists you up and get you salivating for more.. We can certainly see this this one being played on dance floors all around Europe from Croatia to Ibiza.

The package comes with a hot dubby Crackzat remix, which cleverly uses the chorus loop to the max with deep keys and punch to get the floor moving straight away,

Currently she is recording her debut album at the Lab Studios in Clapham with Drew set for release in 2016. For those not in the know Drew is the producer and musician behind Incognito’s Natalie Williams and Mercury nominee and UK hip hop godfather Ty’s prolific output to date.

It looks like 2016 is set to be an exciting year for Aisling with a debut album on the horizon and the right team around her. One thing’s for sure you don’t want to miss sampling a taste when the album’s released.
