‘Say Something’ is the new single from the forthcoming Luke Solomon album ‘Timelines’, and is backed with remixes from Akufen and Julien Chaptal.
Solomon is a name synonymous with quality house music and the British house music scene. His stewardship of Classic alongside Derrick Carter has launched countless illustrious careers, his idiosyncratic productions won many a fan and his DJ sets taken a skewed yet highly individual look at modern electronic music (as well as rocking floors) the world over.
‘Say Something’ is vintage Solomon; dense, rhythmic house with an acidic, flailing funk that is unmistakably the British producer’s own. Punchy vocals and nifty tweaks and twists conspire with the tracks backbone, and you have a real throwdown of a track, albeit one with uncompromising depth. Akufen, a name who has been long associated with Classic and Luke himself, turns in a rare-as-hens-teeth remix which sees the Canadian cut and paste pioneer drop his some of his most funk-laced work in years. Light, organic and with just enough of that bizarre Akufen off-side production and swing, it’s a master class of a remix. Julien Chaptal follows a superb release for Saved with his remix of ‘Say Something’, a boisterous bass led number which wraps itself around some heavily warped portions of the original’s vocals creating a simple and devastatingly effective version.
