161 are a brand new disco and dance outfit from Manchester. 161 is the STD dialling code for the Rainy City. They’re marshalled by house music veteran JASON HERD (aka Juan Kidd) and they’ve just uncorked their debut single, ‘I Love Your Love’… a proper old fashioned disco blast with (like all the best anthems) femme-led, impassioned sing-a-long vocals. The vocalist, by the way, is Nicole Battick. The tune comes in the original mix and a wonderfully named ‘Fat Arse Dub’ which ramps up the energy quotient.
Herd, who’s worked all over … Global Gathering, Creamfields, Space Ibiza, Pacha Ibiza, Amnesia Ibiza, Redlight Paris, Space, Toolroom Knights and Pacha Brazil and many others… saw 161 as a Motown style good time outfit and it shows . Right now we all need a little uplifting and ‘I Love Your Love’ will do just that… kitchen, living room, boudoir, garden, anywhere… forget Joe Wicks, this will get you moving!
