Friend Within :: released December 13 2013
It’s very likely you haven’t been able to escape 'The Renegade' by Friend Within since chart-toppers, Disclosure dropped it in their XLR8R podcast earlier this year. Hammered by BBC Radio 1’s B.Traits and Monki and played by everyone including Breach, Eats Everything and Skream, it now sees a full release with three fresh Friend Within tracks as 'The Renegade EP' via etcetc.
'Wildchild’s' instantly recognizable sample is given a fresh spin, opening with a bouncing 4/4 beat and driven forward by a trademark monstrous bass-line. Backed by three brand-new productions, 'The Renegade EP' is a masterclass in timeless dance music. 'The Birth' brings booming bass to the fore, pulsating with wavey hooks whilst 'The Work' feat. Pete Josef, shows a flair for marrying soulful, vocal-led 90s house rhythms with shuffling techno sonics. The Scene completes the EP with chiming chords, but make no mistake; beneath the groove-laden melodies, this man packs some serious punch.
House is back once again!
