Lemy Currey and Myself started this remix on my good friend Kerwin Du Bois’ 2014 Carnival hit “Spoil Mehself” last summer and decided that now was the time to finish and release this gem that we kept to ourselves for the last 10 months. My brother Walshy Fire heard it and loved the project. He gave his input and when we decided that it's definitely dope enough to drop, he said it's time to GO!
The electricty radiated throughout the room as the lights began to flash euphorically. The walls shook, the ground clattering under the weight of a thousand marching feet. There was a synchronised energy in this place, a cosmic energy. The world was moving onwards and upwards, against the worrisome tide of oppression which had held them down for far longer than it should ever have.
City Fly remain at the forefront of all things house as they continue to push forward UK club culture. Their latest release sees a collaboration from Lemy Leopard and Simbad who deliver three tracks for their 'Vibin' EP.
Lemy Leopard & Simbad join forces to generate an emotive house release for Leicester-based imprint City Fly.
With original material spanning the likes of Lady Blacktronika, Basic Soul Unit, Kez YM, Flori and Ugly Drums, not to mention remixes from Fred P, Andres, Medlar and DJ Nature, it’s safe to say that City Fly is one of Britain’s finest exponents of quality deep house today. Joining the label, Parisian producer and Qalomota Records regular Lemy Leopard pairs up with Flying Lotus and Gilles Peterson favourite Simbad (who appeared on City Fly last year) for a very promising outing.
‘Vibin’ is an upfront slice of deep house, combining soulful coos with a spoken word sample as crunchy snares join funky bass licks. Meanwhile, it’s easy to hear how ‘Cosmic Energie’ earned its title as it impliments interstellar synths and ebbing pads to form an uplifting gem.
Lemy Leopard & Simbad ‘Vibin’ EP drops on City Fly Records on 27th June 2016.
