At the back end of last year RONY BREAKER (a stalwart on the Hungarian Soulful House scene – yes there is a vibrant scene over there!) released a stonking ‘Solid Ground’. Fronted by Atlanta-based soul man Chinua Hawk, the tune was a proper party floor filler… totally “up” and optimistic!
If you missed it, ‘Solid Ground’ is back amongst us in new, equally splendid mixes from Brazil’s No.1 House producer DJ Meme, and Austria’s premier Disco House don Mannix.
DJ Meme delivers a big “Club” mix with soulful piano underlining the catchy melody and funky vibe while allowing the soul-fuelled vocal to soar. Anyone who says they are remotely interested in danceable modern/contemporary soul should check this one out. The main mix clocks in at over six minutes; for the faint hearted there’s a three and half minute mix which actually concentrates all the goodness into one manageable package. Recommended.
The Mannix mix is more electro-based – well he is from Austria. File his tweak under “Nu Disco”!
‘Solid Ground’ (DJ Meme and Mannix Remixes) is out now on Traxsource promo / Full release June 16th, 2023, on Dafia Records.
