After the success of Steeve Mask’s “Sweet Romance,” Fresh Cream Records immediately issues its second top notch single, this time from label don Thomas De Lorenzo. After releasing memorable deep, soulful house tunes on labels such as Defected and Purple Music in the last couple years, as well as his well-received “Remember My Name” for Gooseneck Records, Thomas dives into 2012 with a terrific new sound. With “In My Heart" Thomas merges his soulful roots with some Berlin-style tech-house rhythms, all shaken about with a groovy nu-disco vibe. There’s a vocal sample that will stick in the listener’s mind as the bouncing bass line keeps things moving on the dance floor. It’s a surefire hit to spice up a DJ’s sets.
The song is complemented with a couple of excellent remixes from producers who may be familiar to those who spun Fresh Cream’s first release. Italian duo Marco Rea & Rudy return with a techy treatment that includes vintage drum sounds and ravey synths. This remix will surely please the late night clubbers. Next up, Steeve Mask (who is also a member of The Bulletz along with Thomas) digs into the vocal sample with his signature ‘disco heaven’ style. A 70’s bass feel and live sounding drums only serve to seal the deal. Two releases in and Fresh Cream Records is already shaping up to be a label to watch.
