    A bottle worth popping: new organic prosecco alleges “hangover-free” consumption


    Guest

    Just like its characteristic bubbles, a “hangover-free” branded prosecco is rising to the surface of wine sales — sort of.

    German supermarket chain Lidl will debut its Organic Prosecco Spumante October 12, marketing the organic formula as less likely to induce the characteristic prosecco hangover after a night of imbibing. The white wine’s supposed unicorn ability to ward off prosecco hangovers hinges on its composition — Organic Prosecco Spumante will contain fewer sulphites than other brands of prosecco.

    Lidl’s Master of Wine, Richard Bampfield, explains that the ear splitting headache from which one suffers the morning after an evening of indulgence is frequently a matter of high sulphite preservative content — sulphites are used in many wines to preserve the beverages for extended periods.

    “Generally, organic wine producers use a lower level of sulphites in the production process, which means they are less likely to contribute to hangovers,” Bampfield notes. Sulphite sensitivity is often the culprit among those that live to regret their wine consumption in the morning. While harmless, some people are simply more sensitive to sulphites than others, leading to more intense hangovers for those with the sensitivity. As such, wine producers are required to apply a warning label to their bottles when the sulfite content surpasses a certain level.

    While Lidl’s Organic Prosecco Spumante might not be the end of prosecco related hangovers, filling one’s glass to the top to give the brand a shot wouldn’t be the worst thing to do.

      NYC’s subway buskers turned Beyonce collaborators Too Many Zooz and UK producer KDA have called upon the production talents of Armand Van Helden for a club-primed rework of Warriors. The original, featuring UK #1 producer KDA, has been played 45 times by Radio 1, was Annie Mac’s Hottest Record In The World, featured as the official track for London Pride, and has surpassed 1 million streams on Spotify. With a fresh new remix on the cards courtesy of Armand Van Helden, Warriors is poised to be elevated to new heights over the coming months.
       
      Too Many Zooz started off life as buskers on NYC’s long and winding subway system. Fast-forward just a few years and the brass-house trio have reached heights they never thought possible: from guesting on Beyonce’s Lemonade to selling out shows in the blink of an eye across Europe and the US. Composed of dancing sax wizard, Leo P, the ferocious percussionist King of Sludge and nimble-fingered trumpeter Matt Doe, Too Many Zooz are getting bigger and bigger. Hard on the heels of playing Good Morning Britain last month, there’s seemingly no end to the NYC trio’s meteoric success.
       
      KDA is a South London boy who has an equally impressive command of the commercial realm as he does the underground. He’s the name behind the UK#1, Platinum certified single Turn the Music Louder featuring Katy B and Tinie Tempah, as well as Just Say with Tinashe and the socially conscious new underground dance single Hate Me. His first-hand experience of London’s underground club culture has cemented KDA as a highly regarded dance music authority. His DJ support is an endless list of equally varied tastemakers including the likes of Jackmaster, Seth Troxler, Black Madonna and Jamie Jones.
       
      With over 20 years’ experience as one of the world’s most in demand DJs, Armand Van Helden is a name that needs little introduction. The Boston-born dance music authority has dominated the charts with singles ‘Witch Doktor’ in 1997, ‘You Don’t Know Me’ back in 1999, and ‘My My My’ in 2005. He’s released countless club tracks, old and new, that continue to leave their unmistakable mark on the dance music world. Whether he’s DJing the world’s biggest dance spaces or hard at work in his natural habitat, the studio, Armand Van Helden’s talent and reputation is unparalleled.
       
      “Armand has such a creative way of bringing new shapes and colors out of a song, and he did this brilliantly on the Warrior’s remix. It reminds us of those old UK dance records that we love, with that familiar charming energy of the kick and hats mixed with resonant filter sweeps on the trumpets and saxes. Two words: BIG CHUNE!!!!!!!” - MATT
       
      Armand Van Helden’s dance-floor ready remix of Warriors demonstrates all the hallmarks of a club classic. Replete with gargantuan 909 four to the floor beats and deep, billowing basses that underpin Too Many Zooz’ and KDA’s unmistakable ‘brass-house’ sound, the Boston dance music aficionado has provided a heady remix worthy to be played in the world’s most esteemed club spaces.
       
      Too Many Zooz VS KDA – Warriors (Armand Van Helden Remix)  is out on 17th August 2018 via Ministry Of Sound.
