Hercules And Love Affair and mastermind Andy Butler drops their DJ-Kicks compilation the 29th. On it we get a brand new track from them - Release Me. So nice! It's co-written and features New York DJ Whitney Fierce, and we adore her voice. Alsooo, the 8-bit sounds and the over all retro feel really gets us going + the groove is awesome! For the Andy Butler & Mark Pistel remix click here!
"I wrote this song with my friend DJ Whitney Fierce. She is a great dj, and very knowledgable about dance music from many cultures. She also rocks food coloring for hair dye, which makes her very tasty in my book because it makes me think of Mink Stole, a great actress from Baltimore in some of John Water's films. This song lies somewhere between Stock Aitken and Waterman and Manchester's Hacienda sound, while Whitney sounds very Bananarama on it. Mark Pistel busted out his E- Max on this recording with some original samples he compiled in 91, so that made us all dance in the studio." - Andy Butler
