Riding high in both the Beatport and Traxsource charts and cracking the 40 on the UK Shazam chart from club play and specialist radio spins 6 weeks before the track is scheduled to be released on iTunes Take Me Away is’ looking like a crossover hit.
Rising from the underground, DJ S.K.T‘s trademark sound has gained support across the board of dance music from Radio 1 DJs such as Annie Mac, Pete Tong to producers like MK and Amine Edge. He has not only released on prominent underground labels such as Strictly Rhythm and Audio Rehab, but also with major/crossover labels Sony/Deconstruction, FFRR/Parlophone, ONELOVE and Ministry of Sound with remixes for Clean Bandit & Jess Glynne, Kiesza, Philip George, Wilkinson, Oliver Heldens, Avon Stringer and Little Nikki. Now set to play at some of the biggest festivals across the UK this summer, and iconic venues such as Manchester’s Warehouse Project, 2015 is set to be a big year for S.K.T.
Featuring on Take Me Away is singer/songwriter, DJ & producer, Rae, who has built a global following thanks to a keen devotion to house music and an impressive array of releases on Defected, Toolroom and Food Music. One of few female artists in the house world to deliver club land hits and a flawless live show combining powerful vocals with a captivating DJ set.
S.K.T’s production and Rae’s vocal fit in well with the current wave of garage influenced house tracks that are playing a huge part in the club scene, particularly in the UK. ‘Take Me Away’ combine both garage and house sounds to reflect his versatility as a producer within genres, yet maintaining the common thread of working on the dancefloor. Rae’s atmospheric vocal, combined with a dominant baseline and the drop-oriented composition, make it a track that encapsulates this new style of house music. Old School Heads and Jeff Mills/True Faith fans might recognise this one.
