INSPIRATION SERIES: HUSKY
Husky is one of Australia’s greatest house music exports and as one of half of Random Soul is synonymous with beautiful soulful grooves that are perfectly suited to a hedonistic paradise such as Bali!
If you love to feel good whilst you dance with a smile on your face then Husky is most definitely the man for you! It was, therefore, no surprise that when we asked him to select a selection of Inspirational tracks he chose to tread the path he knows oh so well… Soulful House and what a beautiful selection.
Some beautiful cuts with some truly soulful vocals from top to bottom we hope you enjoy his selection as much as we did ahead of his set at Karma Beach Club on Sunday 10th November!
“Hi guys, thanks for having me for the inspiration series. I have chosen to talk about soulful house records that I love now and will continue to play for many years. I feel like 2019 and the last few years have really seen resurgence in soulful ‘song’ based records. People on the dance floor are singing along with them and producers are inspired to dig deeper into songwriting and production again. I love it!”
KINGS OF TOMORROW & RANDOM SOUL – REACH
“This is a record that we (my studio partner Yogi) wrote with the legendary, Kings Of Tomorrow (aka Sandy Rivera) in 2017. We all sat on it for a while and changed some of the music and beats, and eventually it was finished in LA at Sandy’s studio. It’s energetic and ripe for the dance floor, however it still packs a message. I also enjoyed doing some backing vocals on this one haha. REACH!”
CPEN FEAT. BLUEY ROBINSON – I’M SEARCHING (KERRI’S 6:23 AGAIN VOCAL MIX)
“I have been a fan of Kerri Chandler’s tracks for a long time. His records are always deep and driving but having lovely melodic chords that help to glue his groove together. Utilizing the rnb vocals from Bluey robinson on this one gives it a classic garage house feel. Really enjoyed playing this one out this year.”
THE VISION FEAT. ANDREYA TRIANA – HEAVEN
“Global clubs and dance charts are commonplace for defected these days as they broaden their musical expertise across various labels and genres. This recent signing from The Vision (Ben Westbeach and KON) on Defected is a lovely fresh slice of disco. Sampled and revived with a new original song on top, Heaven is a slice of just that. It’s damn near impossible to not shake your hips to this one, a proper vibe.”
HUSKY FEAT. BRAZEN – ONLY ONE WAY (MICHAEL GRAY REMIX)
“I’m so happy to have Michael on the remix for my last single. He really incorporated everything I love about his productions, Soulful and disco elements. Taking the vocals to another place and putting his own stamp on it. I have been playing this remix nonstop and can’t wait to drop this one on Karma Beach.”
SY SEZ FEAT. CLEVELAND JONES – WITH YOU
“A lovely stripped back groove with a Rhodes progression that instantly hits chill mode and takes you poolside. ‘With You’ is a lovely record that oozes soul with it’s lush vocal layers from Cleveland Jones, combined with classic house drums. A record that I will enjoy playing whenever there is sunshine.”
Dance to Husky’s soulful set 10th November at Karma Beach Bali!
