Brand new UK label, Danse Club Records, launch their ‘Gold Series’ with a re-mastered and remixed version of the 1995 house classic "Love Me Or Leave Me" by Cherie Lee.
Danse Club Records is a new label venture from brothers Scott and Austen Smart, siblings who produce together under the Brodanse name and have music forthcoming on the Fresh Meat label out of Chicago as well as the Fullbarr imprint. The Danse Club label is going to focus on new house and techno releases from established and upcoming artists and alongside this will have a ‘Gold Series’ that will feature classic records from the 90's re-mastered and remixed by leading producers. To kick things off the Smart brothers have picked up a lost gem from 17 years ago, Cherie Lee’s "Love Me or Leave Me", a record that appeared on New Jersey label Music Station and was produced by label boss Jeffrey Collins.
This first release includes remixes from Brodanse, Oliver $ and Matthew K.

I've got streaming preview clips of all three tracks, as well as a purchase link and social media links below. The two original tracks are both great deep house cuts. The ThermalBear remix is great for the late night sets with a little darker edge but it stays deep.

One word that comes to mind immediately upon hearing some of the remix and production work from Urchins is fresh. The Urchins are a production duo from the UK who make beats that are hard for people to limit to genre labels. Give these great tracks a listen, and if you like them, the songs in this post are all free to download.
My recent introduction to Urchins came through the Plump DJs, who are offering up the Urchins remix of their track "Water Born Computer Virus". The track is part breakbeat, part future bass, all funky.
Next up is the Urchins remix of "Say Wha?!" by the Round Table Knights. This one is a great track in a 4/4 style, best described as funky tech house with a heavy bassline.
And if you need an instant party, check out their fun megamix for Kissy Sell Out's show on Radio 1. This mix has tons of classic songs in it.
