- I Woke Up feat. Wayne Hernandez (incl. PBR Streetgang, David Berrie Remixes)
Hottrax | 22.11.2019
UK producer, DJ and renowned radio presenter Monki debuts on Jamie Jones’ Hottrax alongside vocalist Wayne Hernandez, with PBR Streetgang and David Berrie remixes.
Monki has accomplished a lot over the years. Whether as a presenter for BBC Radio 1, Defected Radio or Rinse FM, running her ‘Monki & Friends’ events, not to mention curating a Fabriclive mix, she’s unquestionably one of the UK’s best dance music exports. As well as release on her &Friends label, her productions have been landing on leading imprints like Weapons, DFTD, and iVAV. Debuting on Hottrax alongside London’s jazz singer Wayne Hernandez, she now adds another to her discography, following releases from East End Dubs, Cuartero, Popof, and Jamie Jones himself.
‘I Woke Up’ features a solid analogue kick, atmospheric stabs, flashy cymbals and Hernandez’ perfectly treated vocals which reverberate through the sonic space and captivate attention.
Respected for their excellent releases on Skint in recent years, Kurtz Records founders PBR Streetgang serve up two versions; locking in a compelling groove on their ‘Italo Dromo Mix’ with a simple but effective saturated snare, layering in a retro synth, evolving pads and spacey risers, before their ‘Italo Dromo Dub’ strips things back, emphasizing their beat programming and detailed key work.
Returning Hottrax artist and Play It Say It producer David Berrie concludes matters with a swinging remix by switching up the rhythm using chopped up vocals, slick hats, rolling sub patterns and subtle keyboard flutters.
