Michel de Hey - Baby Work Mine EP
After the great reactions to his recent releases on Pokerflat and Relief Records, label boss Michel de Hey returns to his own HEY! Records imprint with two top tracks he’s played intensively over the summer.
After 30 years in the game releasing on the likes of King Street NYC and Ovum Recordings, Michel de Hey is a well-established and vital figure in the underground scene. He has a big, bouncy sound that is always infectious and constantly innovative. When not touring the world he is laying down his high-quality productions, and these latest are two more that prove that once again.
Excellent opener ‘Baby Work Mine’ fits in smoothly with the huge Pokerflat release he did, and when the bassline kicks in it will bring a smile to faces as well as keep feet busy. It’s a chunky house tune with playful bass and chord vamps that make you want to wiggle.
On the fantastic flip, ‘HEYHO’ has been around for two years and has been a big last tune in Michel’s sets, so is a real anthem already. It is slightly different from his usual outings with sing-along African chords and piano stabs married to a loose house groove, and is destined to stick in your head until well beyond the next morning.
These are essential new tracks that are guaranteed to move the dance floor this autumn.
