Jack Dixon & Rick Grant - Running Man EP [Man Make Music]
The second release on George Fitzgerald's Man Make Music label is a collaborative effort by the ever quality Jack Dixon, who we introduced in January last year, and one of TAKE Records head honchos, Rick Grant. These tracks are very different to Dixon's previous releases and the collaboration with Rick Grant really explores the House side to his style.
The title track really is a smooth, synth laden track that is firmly rooted in the Detroit House sound but blended with a 2-step groove that delivers a funky beat you find yourself subconsciously nodding your head to. The second track, "Muted", is a little more vocal driven and having them pitched down gives this a very relaxed vibe that works well with chilled beats and synths.
The addition of a really outstanding remix by Canadian producer Kevin McPhee really does make this a strong second release on the label. Promos are already available at Juno and the digital release is available at Surus this week, with the full release available everywhere else on the 5th of December.
