OUT NOW ON PRINCIPAL RECORDS S & M 'In My Mind' (feat Dnaë) - Medlars 86' Mix Principal Records PR001 https://www.facebook.com/principalrec https://www.facebook.com/smallarmsfiya https://www.facebook.com/medlarhouse https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dnae Principal Records debut release sees long time pals Danimal Swainger AKA Daniel Swain and Scott 'thatmanmonkz' Moncrieff join forces to present "In My Mind" featuring the soulful vocal stylings of up and coming talented artist Dnaë. Two DJ/Producers based in the steel city of Sheffield, who have been forging out a sound for them-selves on the underground dance music scene and garnering attention and praise from prominent DJ's, producers and music lovers across the globe. These two have graced our little label with this deep, soulful infectious vibe with killer vocal for your (and our) listening pleasure. Turn over the flip for "Medlars '86' Mix, for more darker tastes, just imagine Mr.Fingers & Da Posse and your half way there, pure house flava in ya ear. Danimal is a Wigan pure breed, dragged up on a diet of Northern Soul and Warp records. Danimal followed his nose to (then Warp mecca) Sheffield where he immediately became immersed in the belly of the underground. During his lengthy and chaotic 4 year DJ residency at the notorious drinking hole DULO, he met Scott Monkz, and over their shared love of soul, bleeps, hardware and booze a friendship was formed that reached the natural conclusion of studio time. Danimal had previously made his mark on the Edit 'scene' mixing his obscure disco with modern hardware to create his distinctive take on the genre. Scott 'thatmanmonkz' Moncrieff is a much-heralded underground DJ who over the years had shared the decks with heavyweights such as Carl Craig, Grandmaster Flash, Phil Asher, Benji B, Recloose and Roots Manuva. Sharing a flat with Arctic Monkeys and M.I.A producer Ross Orton led to a crash course in production techniques and analogue Synths, which started him off making the kinds of music that inspired him to DJ. Scott then started Small Arms Fiya with Toddla T (Radio 1), who went on to have a string of underground hits and remixes. Small Arms Fiya created numerous releases and remixes over their 3 Year collaboration, which included Jersey Street, Nubian Minds, Roots Manuva, Domu, Mark Rae, The Elektrons and Lo Tek Hi Fi. Their debut EP with Pete Simpson, and follow up with Ayah Marar was received with impressive acclaim from Benji B, Ross Allen and more. Small Arms Fiya re-launched in 2011 after a hiatus which 'monkz used to experiment with new musical directions. Since then he has been busy producing, arranging, remixing and DJing -- headlining Sheffield's infamous Kabal Warehouse Party, Cargo, and playing alongside Fatlip from The Pharcyde, Hackman, and Martelo. Expect big things from these two. TRACKLIST A1. In My Mind Ft: Dnaë A2. £4£ B1.
