Get Up Recordings is ready to release the first in a series of mini compilations, adding to its diverse catalog of music. Get Up to Get Down - Volume One contains four exceptional house tracks from four unique artists: W. Jeremy, Peter Shalvoy, The Good Connection, and Dr. Sleep.
W. Jeremy is a NYC based DJ and producer and is co-owner of the Get Up Recordings music label. He has previously produced under the moniker House of Stank and recently released his well-received first solo work, the Augusto EP, on Get Up Recordings. His contribution to this release, “Upward Spiral,” is a tech-y inspired jam with a deep groove and an uplifting melody.
The second track comes from Peter Shalvoy, a veteran NYC DJ and recent Las Vegas transplant. His recent forays into production have been garnering attention on a new frontier. Adding his impression to the release, “On The Left” borrows from the classic house track “Set it Off,” reinterpreting it into a slick and modern house track.
The Good Connection (formerly known as The Connection) is the music project of Hollis Good, AKA Hollis Smith, a NYC-based music producer, sound designer, and audio engineer for film, television, and radio. “On Your Mind” is an epically smooth track from Hollis with a beautiful sweeping lead and a pumping bass line melody.
Finishing off the compilation, Dr. Sleep has been DJ’ing in Minneapolis and San Francisco since 2003. She has also produced film scores in a synth and sample-based project called Paperboats, hosted the radio show Dots and Loops, and currently runs the techno label Jacktone Records. Beautifully produced and full of lush soundscapes, her piece “Touché” features a flowing house beat. Voice samples come in and out of the track, drawing the listener closer to it.
Once again, Get Up Recordings shows its strength of diversity by giving recognition to the producers of tomorrow, today.
Doc Martin - “‘On The Left’ I suggest!”
Quentin Harris - “I usually don’t appreciate taking classics and mangling them into a new track. It mostly doesn’t work. But, I have to say Peter Shalvoy did a great job with ‘On The Left.’”
Q-Burns Abstract Message - “I really connect with the swirly pads and twinkling flourishes in ‘On Your Mind’ … ‘Touché’ is also cool and dreamy.”
Claudio Coccoluto - “‘On The Left’ … nice cosmic track.”
Severino (Horse Meat Disco) - “Great package … all very good stuff.”
Joey Silvero (Distant People) - “The nice blend of fresh and retro sounds make this one for me.”
Al Bradley (3am Recordings) - “Dr. Sleep’s ‘Touché’ is my pick … a wicked bass-led groove. Top class.”
Michael Fossati (Spirit of House) - “‘On The Left’ … beautiful melodic deep house track working the ‘Set It Off’ classic to full effect.”
Jamie Topham (CDPool) - “‘On The Left’ is very cool. I’m loving the big synths and retro nuances.”
Kadabra (The House Hookup Radio Show) - “These are all very nice. I’m always looking forward to W. Jeremy releases in my box.”
Corbin Dooley (Electric Feel Radio Show) - “I absolutely love the vibes on this release … it’s hard to pick a favorite. The synths on Peter Shalvoy’s track really grab you.”
DJ Nova (Rodon FM, Greece) - “‘On Your Mind (No Vox Mix)’ by The Good Connection has great flow and its ‘90s keys sound fresh. But I think Dr. Sleep’s dreamy and smooth techno-house hybrid ’‘Touché’’ is the one that I like the most. I found it exceptional.”
