Junior Sanchez Lands On Glasgow Underground With ‘All This Love’
Legendary house icon, Junior Sanchez drops a huge new single ‘All This Love’ on 25th September in his debut on Kevin McKay’s long running and taste-making label, Global Underground. It’s a fantastically fresh version of Debarge’s ‘All This Love’ and has been remade from the ground up with no samples and all original instrumentation. ‘All This Love’ is a wonderfully warm and uplifting house track, which very much taps into the growing trend in dance music for full songs, live instruments and classic production. Extra panache comes to the release with vocals delivered by Felly The Voice whose familiar tones were first heard on OFFIAH’s 2016 summer smash, ‘Trouble’.

New Jersey heavyweight Junior Sanchez has been closely tied to the evolution of house music since the nineties. He has released on the most celebrated labels from Strictly Rhythm to Nervous, Circus to Defected, all having started out aged just 17 as an A&R for Rufftraxx. He has worked with a real ‘who’s who’ of the scene including artists like DJ Sneak and Roger Sanchez, Armand Van Helden and Todd Terry, and his remixography is equally impressive, having retouched A-listers like Daft Punk, Madonna, Gorillaz, Jamiroquai, Azealia Banks, Cassius and Ariana Grande.
Long and storied career aside, Sanchez remains as current today as ever. The stalwart is clocking over 620,000 monthly listeners on Spotify alone and he recently delivered back to back house cuts to lockdown clubbers via Beatport’s Reconnect: Global Livestream. Sanchez’s latest project is KULTUR launched together with jackin’ house producer, Demuir. The brand represents music and people of all colour, sexes and social backgrounds, and aims to put the history of dance music and the artists who made it, at the forefront. KULTUR has kicked off in stylish fashion with releases so far from DJ Sneak, Amine Edge & DANCE and Carlo Lio.
The beautiful ‘All This Love’ comes with huge, 80s-style R&B soul vocals and a serious groove straight out of New York City. It’s already proved popular with house heroes, Mousse T, Mat.Joe, Quentin Harris, Hector Romero, Riva Starr, Vanilla Ace, Paco Osuna and many more. The silky drums roll down low while heart swelling vocals soar into affections up top. Add in the warm, glowing chords, classy strings and a bassline that ties it all together, and the result is a truly timeless new tune from Sanchez that shows rare and real musicality.
Championing house music in its purist forms for over 20 years, Glasgow Underground is the perfect home for this new release. Through careful A&R by GU founder, Kevin McKay, it became a cult, deep house imprint during the late 90s and 00s with fans including Andy Weatherall, Deep Dish and Danny Tenaglia. It was home for popular remixes on Romanthony’s catalogue from the likes of Dixon, MCDE and Claptone, and responsible for introducing producers like Daniel Trim, Brett Gould, Mia Dora and Illyus & Barrientos. Today Glasgow Underground is as relevant as ever. It counts numerous Beatport and Traxsource #1s, regular spots on the BBC Radio 1 shows of Annie Mac, Pete Tong and Danny Howard, over 1million streams and with regular support from the likes of Andrew Meller, CASSIMM, Mike Vale, Moreno Pezzolato, and Lee Cabrera, it remains one of the most prominent house music imprints on the planet.
