    House producer Skiy flexs her skills with new single on Spinnin’

      Category: Music Review

    SKIY_01_PRINT.jpgUp and coming house producer, SKIY, returns to the world renowned Spinnin’ Deep with a heady new club-single. Titled Flawless, the track offers everything the name suggests: intoxicating beats, anthemic melodies and an authentic club vibe. Marking SKIY’s second release this year already, 2019 is set to be SKIY’s most prolific to date.

     

    SKIY has been turning heads all over the world with her hard-hitting, riff-heavy, rugged house sound. Since her groove-laden hit Who Got The Keys was picked up and signed to Oliver Heldens’ Heldeep records in 2018, SKIY’s output has jumped from strength to strength. She’s shared the stage with Tiesto and Timmy Trumpet, she’s seen her music supported by The Magician, EDX, Chocolate Puma, and Dillion Francis, and now she has penned her second single to Spinnin’ Records. With a rich musical upbringing shared across Brazil, Germany and Croatia that saw her exposed to Jazz, soul and the piano from a young age, SKIY’s music beams with musicality and finesse.

     

    It’s no wonder global tastemakers are sitting up and paying attention.

     

    Flawless evolves SKIY’s sound into booming club territory but doesn’t lose sight of the infectious melodies, jumping basslines and catchy vocals that make a SKIY tune unique. Swells of dancefloor energy rise then give way to energetic four to the floor beats and textured layers of FX for a high-octane club cut that is sure to become a favourite among DJs and fans in 2019. 

     

    SKIY - Flawless is out 4th March

      Da Hool, producer of the 1997 massive hit “Meet Her At The Love Parade”, has hit out on social media this week claiming that an artist called “Joel Corry” ripped off his track. 

      Da Hool (Frank Tomiczek) posted on Facebook this week stating Joel Corry had released a track called "The Parade" which used a sample of his track "Meet Her At The Love Parade" without his permission.  Da Hool posted that label CR2 Records had contacted him three times in regards to using a sample of his track and each time he denied the request telling the label "We unfortunately can't give you approval , because there will be another release soon, Sorry for not having better news". The label informed him a few weeks ago that Corry had released the song on his own still keeping the original sample.  Da Hool states that he and Warner Chappell have requested removal of this song from various social media and music sites, including YouTube, but the artist continues to re-upload the track to YouTube. When asked about it, Da Hool told us that “It's not the fact, that he has done it. it was just the way how this happened! We are planning to do a re-release by ourself and this is what i told the label and the artist when they asked for approval three times.”. Da Hool refers to the action as “An absolutely No-Go. Illegal, ignorant and disrespectful”.  He adds “It's an honor for me as an artist and producer if other people, young or old, are remixing or remaking my tunes, but do it in a cool and respectful way and don't steal music.”

      Plagiarism is rife in the music industry, with a large number of popular producers using samples of other people’s tracks in their own. Ed Sheeran has famously been caught out on in on a number of occasions, with using tracks from the late Marvin Gaye in his track “Thinking Out Loud”, and Sheeran’s collaboration with Tim McGraw and Faith Hill on track “The Rest Of Our Live”, which rips off Jasmine Rae’s song “When I Found You”.  Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams has also been caught out, with a $5million lawsuit against them for using Marvin Gaye’s track “Got to Give It Up”. In fact, even recently, Marshmello is facing a lawsuit from fellow EDM producer Arty over similarities between Marshmello’s “Happier” and Arty’s remix of OneRepublic’s “I Lived”.  A google search on plagiarism in the music industry shows so many cases where a popular artist has ripped off another artist’s sample or song.  Our research even found that another track by Harry Ley, called “Love Parade”, released by the same label that released “The Parade”, Up-Tempo Records, also contains a sample that sounds very similar to the Da Hool hit from 1997.

      When we reached out to Da Hool to find out more about what he plans in regards to the copyright infringement, he told us that “(his) legal department and Warner Chappell are just working on (the claim) but it seems that JC is understandable and he knows that he has done something wrong, so it should be settled”. Da Hool recognises that most labels know how to do business correctly, and does not believe it was in any way the fault of the label, CR2 Records. 

      At the time of writing, a representative for Joel Corry and CR2 Records had not responded to our requests for comment, and Up-Tempo Records could not be contacted, with their Facebook page and website being taken offline.  In fact, the Corry track has also since been removed from many of the mainstream music sites such as Beatport, Google Play, Soundcloud, and Apple Music.

      If there is one huge bonus to come of this, we now know to keep an eye out in the near future for a re-release of Da Hool’s massive hit!  Watch this space people!
       
       
       
      Listen to the tracks below to decide for yourself if you think Joel Corry and Harry Ley are ripping off Da Hool’s track.

      When ‘Lord of the Mics’ Jammer, was recently pushed over on stage, in a shock incident at Wiley’s long-standing event ‘Eskimo Dance,’ claims quickly started to arise that it was none other than Premiership football legend Ian Wright who was the culprit.  The claims lead to a social media frenzy with speculation as to why Ian Wright would have been so angered by Jammer and why he was even in attendance at a grime event in the first place.  With confused fans of both parties calling for answers to the many questions that were on everyone’s lips, Ian Wright took to his own Instagram to respond to the whole situation.  The incident then snowballed and the entire scenario made national news.  Setting off a wave of hilarious memes (that included Jammer moonwalking) the story was trending across social media over several days.  Read here: https://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/latest-news/767371/ian-wright-jammer-video-grime-mc-england-push-twitter-eskimo-dance-printworks.

      This event lead Jammer straight into the studio and the result is a track called, yes, you guessed it: 'Ian Wright’ and by the looks of things, Ian fully approves: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bvl10k7lYG0.  In fact, Ian is fully embracing it and is also rumoured to appear in the video, which launches today, alongside a number of celebrity guest cameos from the football and music world.
       
      Although born from a negative incident that would be pretty difficult for any artist to recover from, Jammer has been quick to show that there is no place for any bad vibes and has flipped the situation in to a pretty epic outcome that only he could do.  Naturally pulling in one of the world’s biggest Football legends and also a production courtesy of huge Australian producer: ‘What So Not,’ (who has previously worked with Flume, RL Grime, Dillon Francis and Skrillex), ‘Ian Wright’ is born as an electronic grime masterpiece doused in wonky baseline and topped with Jammer’s lyrical skill and wit. 
       
      Known for his humour and creative genius to his hundreds of thousands of followers, Jammer is one of the foundational lynchpins of the grime scene.  Part of ‘Boy Better Know’ alongside Skepta and also director of seminal brand Lord of the Mics, Jammer gets it in the back of the net as 'Ian Wright' scores with football and music fans, plus anyone that enjoys a bit of top entertainment!
