Grizzly X Local Action release joint single

March 8, 2011

Sindens’ Grizzly label collaborates with Tom Lea’s Local Action imprint for a free digital release.

The two rising labels have been putting out some unsullied material for a while now. May that be the intriguing collaboration of SBTRKT and Sindens’ ‘ Midnight Marauder’ or the harmonious vocals of Terri Walker over T.Williams ‘Heartbeat on Local Action.

Now two of the label’s core artists, New York’s Contakt and Liverpool’s Melé have remixed each others’ latest singles.

‘Contakt takes the ice-cold house of Mele’s ‘Trappin’ [Grizzly] and slows things down, resulting in a fat, synth-led bouncer, while Melé pitches up Contakt’s ‘Rhodophyta’ [Local Action] close to juke tempo, with scuttling drum machines and a serious, serious drop. Divided in terms of tempo, both tracks share a fiery, red aesthetic that makes them perfect sparring partners.’

Both labels have some exciting stuff coming out this year. Local action will be dropping their fifth record, with another remix of T. Williams’ anthemic  ‘Heartbeat’ by Paul Woolford. While Grizzly is going from strength to strength with 3 releases under their belt this year- Jon Giovanni aka Felix Buxton’s ‘Take Off’, Sinden & SBTRKT’s ‘Seekwal’ and Melé’s ‘Mugged’. Stay posted for more exciting new releases.

Melé’s ‘Mugged’ is out today with remixes from Sinden & Mensah, buy at Juno or Boomkat

Contakt’s ‘Not Forgotton/Rhodophyta’ is out now with a remix from DJ Rolando, buy from Phonica or Boomkat.
