Next up from Get Up Recordings is the Euphoria EP from label owner Christy Love. The package includes two original tracks and a remix of the title track by fellow NYC DJ / producer Michael Magnan.
Christy Love has been immersed in the house music scene for more than two decades and is one of the most sought-after DJs in NYC because she consistently destroys dance floors all over the city and beyond. Her distinct sets are comprised of a clever mixture of classic and modern house bursting with driving tech beats and funky bass lines … she plays a pivotal role in defining the current underground sound of New York. This DJ prowess, combined with her individual production work – in addition to her work as House of Stank with long-time collaborator W. Jeremy and the success of their label Get Up Recordings – has transformed Christy into a house music triple threat. “Euphoria” is a funky tech-house groove, filled with Christy’s signature driving drums, a deep and dark bass line, dubbed-out vocal cuts, and reflective key stabs that build into a classic hypnotic rhythm.
Remix duties come courtesy of fellow NYC DJ and producer Michael Magnan. If you live in New York City and dwell amongst the downtown music / fashion scene, chances are you’ve heard of Michael. This artist has been turning out parties for what seems like ages and infusing hit songs with his signature brand of musical swag. He is also one-half of the DJ / production duo Fatherhood along with Physical Therapy. His take on “Euphoria” features runway-inspired sub bass driven beats, oozing with layered percussion.
The second original track is the melodic and trippy “Raki”, a bass and percussion-heavy house jam with minimal musical elements that packs a powerful dance floor punch. Let it take you on a journey.
