Krafted celebrates 200 releases with Paul Sawyer, David Ricardo, Redux Saints, Giapan – Free Inside feat. Vanessa Maria

Continually pushing the boundaries and creativity of the house music scene, Krafted Underground celebrate their 200-release milestone with a collaboration of Label boss Paul Sawyer and fellow artists from the Krafted stable, David Ricardo, Redux Saints & Giapan.

‘Free Inside’ features Vanessa Maria with her beautiful infectious voice and is a smooth melodic journey with analogue synth lead that represents the current sound of Krafted Underground. Collectively the artists have been enjoying some huge releases recently including labels Toolroom, CR2, Black Hole Recordings, Armada, Pure Progressive, Steyoyoke, Balkan Connection, Pro B Tech Music; the list is endless.

Enlisting two legends within the underground house scene to provide their interpretations of Free Inside, Nick Muir and Blue Amazon.

Nick Muir is one of the giants of the UK dance music scene. He is a musician/producer as well as a DJ of international renown. Nick has been involved with John Digweed and the Bedrock project since its inception and has been responsible for some seminal moments in the scene, countless original tracks and remixes as well as soundtrack work and DJ mixes. Here Nick encapsulates the hypnotic elements of the original whilst keeping the vocal intact, he intentionally created something that was aimed at midway sets.

Blue Amazon a name that has been associated with quality over the years with a number of classic tracks including “No Other Love” and “The Javelin Album”, and remixes for the likes of Sasha, Skunk Anansie, New Order & Madonna. Lee aka Blue Amazon, strips the track back and takes the music more underground, losing the vocal and adding a squelchy lead, and synth stabs.
