Black Legend Project – Gather Round

Back in 1999 a previously unheard of production duo called Black Legend cheekily sampled the vocals of a Barry White classic and the original bootleg of their track ‘You See The Trouble With Me’ was an instant hit, receiving massive support from Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1 and was arguably the biggest tune among big tunes in Ibiza that year, much to the US soul singer’s irritation. To avoid a costly lawsuit, a second, authorised version was quickly recorded with Elroy Powell AKA Spoonface providing the vocals but Black Legend had already announced their arrival on a global stage; ‘You See The Trouble With Me’ was a Number 1 hit, selling more than 2 million copies, gaining Gold and Platinum Discs in the process.

Original co-member Enrico Ferrari has made way and Ciro Sasso has rekindled the Black Legend Project alone and it would appear he’s lost none of the magic for producing big time tracks with cheeky samples.

The latest offering from Black Legend Project is the House monster ‘Gather Round’ which is out now on French label, Jango Music. Sampling Odyssey’s ‘Use It Up And Wear It Out’ from 1980, Ciro stays true to the original in many ways, adding kicking drums and a floor-shaking bass line before filtering in the vocals to create what is sure to be another firm favourite in clubland and the latest in a long line of hits for this veteran of the scene.

‘Gather Round’ by Black Legend Project is out now on Jango Music.

mindagainst

Berlin-based Italian techno outfit Mind Against are next in line to deliver Pete Tong’s legendary Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1 this Saturday night. Having spent the past couple of years honing their talents in the modern home of techno and being feted by the likes of Boiler Room and Resident Advisor, the Fognini brothers will be stepping up to a global platform to demonstrate just why how their unique style IDM blended with house and techno has been garnering so much attention.
Commenting on being asked to deliver a mix for such a prestigious series, the brothers said; “while our recent mixes were focused on more ambient or home listening selections, when recording our Essential Mix we really wanted to show how our DJ sets are sounding at the moment. We’ve included a lot of secret weapons, unreleased materials from ourselves and friends and tried to make it all sound like a journey we’d both be happy to take on a dancefloor. The mix is powerful yet also very personal – and definitely melancholic. We hope you guys will like it as much as we enjoyed selecting and mixing down the tracks.”
Known for their melancholy yet energetic mixture of dark, dubby and synth led techno, Mind Against have collaborated with the likes of Tale Of Us, Recondite and Locked Groove, with DJ support coming from the cream of the techno circuit including Scuba and DJ Tennis, plus releases on labels such as Hotflush and Life And Death.

Tep No made quite the splash in 2015 with his hit single “The Last Ones Standing” which premiered on BBC Radio 1 tastemaker Pete Tong, was licensed for an on line campaign with Michael Kors and accumulated millions of streams on Spotify.

After his explosive remix of Lana Del Rey’s “Florida Kilos,” Tep No is ready to shake up the industry yet again with the release of his new visual “The Best Crew” which hit #1 on Hype Machine!

Tep No Debuts Visual for “The Best Crew”

Tep No is an artist based out of Toronto, ON. In 2014, Tep No decided to quit his acting career; he was living temporarily in LA at the time. He wanted to focus on music and make a successful career out of it, especially since his fellow actor friend Drake had launched in the Hip-Hop world years prior. Since the release of “Promises”, his fanbase has skyrocketed in the underground scene. After a lot of label considerations, Tep No decided to remain independent for the time being in order to focus on his craft. The Last Ones Standing was produced in the summer of 2014 and self-released in January of 2015. Pete Tong premiered the song on BBC1, and it launched Tep No’s career to even higher levels. The song was licensed for an online campaign for Michael Kors, and the song has amassed over 4.3 million streams on Spotify.
