Terminology Records gets 2015 underway in style with a new single from UK producer Redsparrow.
A number of electronic music labels made their mark in 2014 and Terminology Records was certainly one. The UK label was launched in October of 2013 and really picked up some wonderful momentum last year. The artist roster is a tight and talented crew with Andrew Best, Erik Lake, Terje Saether, Redsparrow, Donda and many others consistently delivering excellent productions. The labels first release of 2015 is out this week and it features the return of Redsparrow. Michael Hilton aka Redsparrow hails from Sheffield, UK and at a very young age already has already crafted quite a distinctive sound. His new single for Terminology Records is entitled ‘Take It From The Champ’ and it comes with a remix from the mysterious Han Haak.
Redsparrow’s original leads the release off and for those that loved his ‘Glock’ production from last June you’re bound to love this as well. The UK producers deep, percussive grooves have never sounded better and his now trademark elastic-like hooks are on full display here as well. A distinctive vocal sample adds a cool story board to the main break and subsequent build into the second half is a lesson is subtly building tension. Wonderful track from Redsparrow.
The lone interpretation of ‘Take It From The Champ’ is provided by Han Haak who is making his first appearance on Terminology Records. The UK artist began his production career in June of 2013 with an appearance on Sound Avenue’s very well received ‘Summer Sampler’. The track ‘Slaves In Transit’ was the lead piece on the release and was eventually remixed by hundreds of hopeful producers as part of a remix contest put on by Sound Avenue. 2014 saw other huge successes; most notably ‘Rusted Robot’ which received a remix from Quivver. For his ‘Take it From The Champ’ interpretation Han has put a deeper, smoother and more hypnotic twist on the production. From the chugging grooves to funky melodic hooks and nearly inaudible reinvention of the vocals there is a lot to like here and I’d say it’s Han’s most dance floor worthy creation to date. It’s overall smoothness makes it my pick of the two but they’re both really strong so you can’t go wrong with either one. Great release for Terminology Records to kick off 2015. Keep an eye on this label as 2015 progresses, more beauties on the way I’m sure.
