Steeve Mask feat. Adama - Loosen Up (Fresh Cream Records)

Italy’s Fresh Cream Records continues its ambitious pace with the sixth release from the label, marking the return of Steeve Mask and regular collaborator Adama. Steeve is a veteran DJ on the Italian scene, one half of The Bulletz with Thomas De Lorenzo, and co-owner of Fresh Cream. He’s starting to really make a name for himself with his refreshing deep house style, incorporating elements of nu-disco and funk into a floor-pleasing sound. Parisian vocalist Adama provided vocals on Steeve Mask’s single that launched Fresh Cream, the well received “Sweet Romance,” and now they’ve combined forces again for the brand new “Loosen Up.”

“Loosen Up” instantly creates a feel-good floor vibe with its disco rhythm, captivating bass line, housey piano chords, and Adama’s silky vocal delivery. This is the perfect track to knock the party into next gear and get the dancers flooding the boogie zone. Prime mover! Fresh Cream regulars Marco Rea & RU.DiJ are on hand for the first remix, a delicious ‘dub’ that pulls things deeper and in a more electronic realm, using repeated phrases from Adama’s vocal track to a hypnotizing effect. This one’s solidly placed for an after-hours affair. The second remix in the package comes from Steeve’s partner in The Bulletz and Fresh Cream, Thomas De Lorenzo. With lush synth pads, clappy 808 percussion, effected vocals, and a pulsating bass line this treatment borders on Balearic deep house, making it a top choice for summer beach-side soirees. Three beautiful tracks from Fresh Cream Records here, ready for residence in your digital DJ crate.

Rudy Kizer (Hit The Decks Radio Show) - “Holy balls! The original is brilliant!”
