DescriptionHeston Standing in the Shadows EP (Funkpony Records)
Heston can officially announce the birth of Funkpony Records and to kick things off we have the one and only Head Honcho of the label 'Heston'. After already having sublime releases on established house imprints such as Nurvous Records NYC, Alive Records and Nastyfunk to name a few, it was only right that Heston would kick things off for us. And what a debut release this is.
'Standing in the shadows' is a slick, sexy, soulful beauty, with a bass trembling groove underneath what can only be described as a super spine tingling vocal. This has been one of those tracks that gets played and makes people turn and ask their friends, what is this?'. This is the type of quality you expect from Heston.
On the remix front, we have Fideles of Suara and Kote Records who produce a truly no nonsense house track, by taking the vocals and layering it over a bassline that you can truly only experience on a big soundsystem. The musical aspect of how it blends perfectly with the vocals, make this track truly stand out.
The 2nd remix comes from Nastyfunk records Head Honcho Erik Christiansen, as he puts his own spin on the original in his own distinctive style. Erik turns it into a sexy disco house number and cuts the vocal up, which bounces off the sort of bassline that will make any dance floor in the world shake and tremble.
This is a awesome start for the label and this whole release has a sound for every mood, but as our Funkpony motto says ; let the music do the talking. So kick back, listen and be prepared to be blown away ,by what is just a taste of even more dynamite music to come.
