DJ, remixer and producer Sam Redmore released his debut artist album on Jalapeno Records last month. After years of putting out remixes and edits of everyone from Stevie Wonder to Bob Marley and Donna Summer to name just a few. It was only a matter of time that such a telented remixer and producer would be signed by a highly respected label such as Jalapeno Records.
We first really became aware of Sam back in 2016. He kindly accepted our invitation to do a mix for our Guest DJ Series. If you haven’t already you should check it out, it’s a stellar mix – Guest Mix 006 – Sam Redmore.
We must have known something as Sam has since gone on to compile mixes for The Trunk of Funk segment on Craig Charles’ radio show and Huey Morgan’s Block Party show.
In the leadup to the albums launch Sam teased us with a flurry of singles. Nagu, Just Can’t Wait, Party, One More Time and Tears.
The instrumental horn-led latin vibes of Nagu is perfect for those sweaty dancefloor moments, with it’s driving beats and summertime feels.
Just Can’t Wait a Disco/House dancefloor destroyer, featuring vocalist Lumi HD. If the entire club hasn’t got it’s hands in the air and singing along to this by the end of the song then you are defiently in the wrong club.
Party sees Sam team up with Lumi HD once again. A groovy bassline and horn stabs give way to Lumi’s vocals. A brokenbeat soul excursion that hints at hiphop and Neo Soul influences.
Renegade Brass Band and Auden Allen collaborate with Sam for On The One. New Orleans style brass meets hiphop. We would love to see this live at a festival, bound to be a massive crowd pleaser.
Slightly more on the relaxed vibe are So Real and Only Because You’re Around. Giving you a quick break inbetween the bangers. All in all one hell of a party album, each and every track stands out on it’s own. As they say ‘All Killer, No Filler’!
