[listen] Hercules & Love Affair – “Release Me”

Fresh nu-house from new York.

- Oct 22, 2012

Hercules & Love Affair have an edition of DJ-Kicks coming out October 29 (UK) and November 13th (US), and will include “Release Me,” a brand and ridiculously cool new track from the band. Here's what band member Andy Butler had to say about the song:

“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.”

A great shot in the arm for house music's (arguably flagging) comeback. Listen below:
