Kenny Summit & Director’s Cut ft. Yasmeen – Loving You
‘Loving You’ from the dream team, Kenny Summit, Director’s Cut & Yasmeem, was orginally unleashed last year on Good For You Records and soared all the way to Traxsource no. 1 and stayed there for a whole month! Back once again to cause mass destruction on this Summer’s dance-floors, ‘Loving You’ gets a makeover from top DJ Producers Dave Mayer & Husky. Together the boys have turned out 2 tasty feel-good mixes; 1 armed with a deep 90’s bass groove, bumping beats and warm Rhodes that bubble under Yasmeen’s love-struck vocal; and a sparkling disco tinged chuggy dub mix, deemed to shoot this winner straight back up the charts!
Director’s Cut are a production duo comprising of two of dance music’s most influential producers – Frankie Knuckles and Eric Kupper. They first launched the project in 2011, signing to Nocturnal Groove, with the massive single ‘I’ll Take You There’, which featured long time friend and vocalist Jamie Principle on vocals. They have since gone on to woo dance-floors worldwide with their electric productions and remixes, reigniting anthems such as Frankie’s ‘Your Love’, ‘The Whistle Song’ and Sylvester’s ‘Mighty Real’, to further magical new productions including ‘Get Over U’ ft B Slade and ‘Let Yourself Go’ with Sybil, among many others. Director’s Cut consistently add warmth, feeling and class to anything they touch, creating distinctive sonic beauty that resonates our dance-floors and beyond.
