Get Up Recordings welcomes back NYC hometown DJ / producers The Carry Nation with their infectious house jam “Breakwater”. The release has some heavy backers on the remixes: Batty Bass label head honcho Hannah Holland as well as Chi-town bosses Banjee Report.
The Carry Nation, comprised of Will Automagic and Nita Aviance, have been producing tracks and remixes for the past five years for such labels as Batty Bass, TRAX, Nervous, Get Up Recordings, TRIBAL, Night People, DFA, and Twirl. Their party, also named The Carry Nation, started at Brooklyn’s infamous after-hours spot The Spectrum and lived at both Steel Drums and 43 Scott before landing at Good Room. Their productions and the infamy of their parties have brought them around the world in recent years from Berlin to Chicago, Helsinki to San Francisco, Milan to Paris, Pittsburg to Austin, and their second city, London, including Block9 at Glastonbury Festival. The duo have past releases and remixes on Get Up Recordings, such as “Warriors” with The Cucarachas, Nita’s side project Brooklyn is Burning, and Will’s side project Automagic. Their catchy, ethereal house jam “Breakwater” continues to showcase their amazing talent at producing. They also include a dub of the track, entitled Praise Mix.
First up on remix duties is London’s Hannah Holland. Hannah’s career began ten years ago with legendary DJ residencies at seminal London clubs Trailer Trash, Batty Bass, and Dalston Superstore. Hannah regularly appears at clubs such as Fabric London, Dance Tunnel, Ministry Of Sound, and Bugged Out. She has toured the world extensively; China, Singapore, Australia and North America have all rocked out to Hannah’s distinctive bass-heavy sound playing alongside such luminaries as Steffi, Rodhad, Green Velvet, Andrew Weatherall, Ivan Smagghe, and Jennifer Cardini. As well as remixes for The Knife, DJ Hell, O Children and Planningtorock, Hannah has original releases on Legendary, Nervous Records, and Get Up Recordings. Her current releases include The Lush EP on Derrick Carter & Luke Solomon’s Classic Music Co. imprint and an incredible remix of the Spatial Awareness EP on Twirl. Her distinct productions, which fuse many styles into a hybrid of house, techno, and bass can be heard on her massive groove remix for “Breakwater”.
Next up is semi-new producers, but life-long artists, Banjee Report, aka Mister Wallace and aCeb00mbaP, who really got their start in the summer of 2011 as a party for the under-represented Queer class in Chicago. By the fall of 2012, the party grew to a globally-inspired podcast that reached over thirty-five countries. They dropped their debut mixtape, “Banjee Report First Edition”, in January 2013, followed by touring that included stops at Via festival in Pittsburgh and SXSW. After founding member aCeb00mbaP launched the label FUTUREHOOD, co-founder Mister Wallace released his debut EP, FAGGOT, in February 2016 to critical acclaim. Their remix for “Breakwater” is a sublime drum-infused dream.
