DJ S.K.T Ft Rae - Take Me Away (Remixes)
‘Take Me Away’ was A-Listed on BBC Radio 1 and cracked the Top 5 on the UK Shazam Chart, (2 weeks before the track was scheduled to be released by Warner Atlantic in the UK) and is looking like a crossover hit.
Rising from the underground, DJ S.K.T’s trademark sound has gained support across the board of dance music from Radio 1/1xtra DJs such as Annie Mac, Pete Tong and DJ Target to producers like MK and Amine Edge. He has not only released on prominent underground labels such as Strictly Rhythm and Audio Rehab, but also with major / crossover labels Sony / Deconstruction, FFRR/Parlophone, ONELOVE and Ministry of Sound. Having remixed for artists such as: Clean Bandit & Jess Glynne, Kiesza, Philip George, Wilkinson, Oliver Heldens, Avon Stringer and Little Nikki. Now set to play at some of the biggest festivals across the UK this summer and iconic venues such as Manchester’s Warehouse Project, 2015 is set to be a big year for S.K.T.
Featuring on the track is singer / songwriter, DJ & producer, Rae, who has built a global following thanks to a keen devotion to house music and an impressive array of releases on Defected, Toolroom and Food Music. One of few female artists in the house world to deliver club land hits and a flawless live show combining powerful vocals with a captivating DJ set.
S.K.T’s production and Rae’s vocal fit in well with the current wave of garage influenced house tracks that are playing a huge part in the club scene, particularly in the UK. ‘Take Me Away’ combines both garage and house sounds to reflect his versatility as a producer within genres, yet maintaining the common thread of working on the dancefloor. Rae's atmospheric vocal, combined with a dominant baseline and the drop-oriented composition, make it a track that encapsulates this new style of house music.
Now here comes the highly anticipated remixes with a slice of dancefloor activity for everyone. Leading the frontline of the package, Defected's Franky Rizardo brings the bassline house vibes, Gianni Bini (of Bini & Martini fame) goes classic chuggy house whilst Illyus & Barrientos supply their signature fix, Australia’s Pablo Calamari, Dance Cult and Fear of Dawn provide rubs for Australian dance floors Rounding out the pack is the legendary drum n bass lord Andy C doing what he does best.
