New on LOOP – Believe the Hype!

30 Nov

LOOP is by far my favorite label in NZ. With well over 55 releases they have morphed over the years from traditional label right through to innovative events company and boutique agency.  2013 is gonna be epic for these guys with some seriously dope releases on the horizon, but first here’s some seriously nice singles to power you down the  home straight of 2012.

Eavesdrop “Clear Water (ft. Keshia)”

After releasing a string of well-received singles, remixes and two EPs, Dave ‘Eavesdrop’ Wood is set to make a defiant and anticipated return with his debut LP, “Pins & Needles” – dropping March 2013 on LOOP.   The lush first single taken from the album, ‘Clear Water (ft Keshia)’ marks the first of a string of Eavesdrop singles.  Impressive vocal talent, Keshia, is new on the scene and shot and starred in the ‘Clear Water’ video, set in Japan.

Yes King “Overproof”

After the stonking debut release of ‘Rock This World’ on LOOP in 2008 Yes King makes a welcome return with their sophomore LP – ‘Re-Record Not Fade Away’.

“Overproof” the first single taken from the album features the sultry vocals by Mel Uye-Parker and comes with a bag of remixes by Sola Rosa, Eavesdrop and Joe Revell. Plus there is a second version (riddum) of the song “Raise Up” featuring Kenny Knotts. ‘Re-Record Not Fade Away’ LP out on LOOP & BBE early 2013
