Viva Recordings is pleased to welcome Joeski on board for his label debut with the late night wonder "Cross Over", featuring vocalist Jesánte. The Brooklyn-based Joeski has been a long time staple in the NYC house music scene, as co-founder of the legendary Chocolate Factory and proprietor of Maya Records. His brand of moody, tribal-tinged house has found a home on a myriad of influential labels including Suara, Kinetika Records, and Defected. "Cross Over" presents a deep and sultry four-on-the-floor journey, ideally suited for the soulful connoisseur and the after hours navigator. The single includes an original mix, showcasing the lovely vocal work of Jesánte, and a stripped-back dub that accentuates the cut's bass-heavy groove. Dig in.
