UK house duo Versus land on Ultra Music with ‘Turn Me Out’: a stunning new version of the much-loved club classic set to further establish them as a force to be reckoned with.

Versus are Dave Skehan and Scott Walker an electronic duo who have been blazing a trail through the UK club scene and beyond. A partnership forged over several years, their chemistry both in the studio and when performing live is electric. Following performances at The Warehouse Project, Ministry of Sound, and their own sell-out Versus & Friends parties over the last few years, they’re hotly tipped by some of House music’s most influential figures.

Versus’s sound is rooted in classic house and rave culture, with tracks ranging from hypnotic warehouse rollers like 2019’s Lick It to soaring mainroom anthems in the vein of 2020’s Afraid in collaboration Dissolut and Nicola Green. With previous releases landing on storied imprints such as Armada, Under No Illusion, SOLA and Realm, they now make their Ultra Music debut with the huge Turn Me Out – a slamming reinterpretation of the Praxis/Kathy Brown club classic.

Preserving much of both the frenetic energy and heartfelt soul that made the original so beloved, Turn Me Out employs ravey stabs, pummeling drums, broken beats and that iconic vocal, resulting in a real moment of a record that will be devastating dancefloors and festivals alike for months to come.

Versus was formed after a chance meeting at local radio station in South Manchester. Cutting their teeth selling vinyl from Scott’s own record shop, Dave manned the UK Garage/House department, proving themselves true students of the art. An education well-earned, nowadays they take inspiration from the likes of Christoph, Camelphat, Borris Brejcha, Stehpan Bobzin, as well as fellow Mancunians Solardo and Chris Lake.

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.
