Waterson – Shelter (Moodymanc Remix)



Following an avalanche of support for his debut release ‘Tell Me’ earlier this year, rising Scottish star Waterson returns with ‘Shelter EP’, a sublime collection of three brand new original tracks perfectly complimented with our Debut Transmission a remix from Moodymanc.

Released back in January this year with main mixes from chart-topping producer KDA, Waterson’s ‘Tell Me’ found support from an array of A-listers, including Pete Tong, Annie Nightingale, The Magician, DJ S.K.T., Kenny Dope, Mark Knight, Blonde, Luke Solomon, Sister Bliss and A-Trak. Plays on Radio 1, Beats 1, Capital Xtra, 6 Music and Rinse soon followed, along with compilation inclusions from Toolroom, Future Disco, CR2 and Defected, marking it as one of the most impactful underground debuts of the year.

‘Shelter’ makes a political plea for maintaining a sense of community whilst the world around us changes. The lyric is a clarion call, reminding us that we are all part of a greater whole; joining in the fight against conservatism, looking out for those who still need help. It’s a house track in the truest sense of the genre; calling clubbers to arms in the most soulful way, taking us back to dance music’s radical roots, with a vocal style reminiscent of Robert Owens.

In addition to these three strikingly unique originals, the EP boasts remixes of the title track courtesy of deep house guru Moodymanc, east London techno bass queen Hannah Holland and up-and-coming Chicago neo-house producer Kryptogram, all of whom deliver their own arresting versions.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
