For their big debut on Moon Harbour, CamelPhat have linked up with Cari Golden, the voice of modern house music, for a superb new single that comes backed with a remix from label head Matthias Tanzmann.
The British, Grammy-nominated duo CamelPhat have risen from the underground to go on to global prominence. Their big house sounds often feature guests and collaborators. They have released on labels like Defected, Sola and Snatch! and now serve up another of their timeless tunes with Cari Golden, who has featured with the diverse likes of Groove Armada, DJ T and Roger Sanchez on plenty of Beatport number ones. She can sing on sunny boat party sounds as well as raw warehouse tunes with equal style, and here offers something brilliantly intense.
The intoxicating ‘Freak’ is a high impact affair designed for big rooms. The techno tinged drums are overlaid with Golden’s paranoid vocals. Her dark delivery is matched by the turbulent bass and taught synths that add to the sense of tension that will sweep the dance floor off its feet.
Remixing is the German Matthias Tanzmann, who is in fine form as he strips things back to a bubbling, pressurised Tech House groove. He layers in sweeping white noise, chattery claps and the original vocal as well as plenty of freaky effects to make for a track that will flip dancers inside out.
This is another high-grade release from all concerned.
