Get Up Recordings co-owner, W. Jeremy, kicks off the label’s 2014 releases with two original tracks, “Nerve” and “Augusto”. “Nerve” features remixes from Horse Meat Disco’s Severino and the Italian duo Carol. This single may be W. Jeremy’s first solo release, but he is no stranger to production. He has previous originals with fellow Get Up Recordings boss Christy Love as House of Stank and remixes for their co-run label as well as GFY Black Label, Men Make Music, and Kinetika Records.
“Nerve” is a deep house club track with a Detroit-style key progression, warm bass line, and continuous vocal sample all leading up to a quick breakdown before winding back into the swing of things. Horse Meat Disco’s Severino gives “Nerve” his signature remix treatment, combining wide-ranging and eclectic house music influences for a real banger. With a funky bass line, time stretched vocals, and high pitched squelches ripping through the air, this mix is definitely for the big room. Carol is a production duo from Milan made up of members Damien and Fedex. Their interpretation of “Nerve” uses an amazingly dark wave of filter sweeps and Micro Korg hits that transport the listener along a deep disco journey.
The second W. Jeremy original, “Augusto”, is a deep house track with an airy and fluid Jupiter synth lead, a deep grooving bass line, and filtered rhythmic keys. It’s a beautiful finish to another fantastic package from Get Up Recordings.
