Premiere: Berkson & What feat. JoJo De Freq – “Make It True” (Mr. Fingers Psychedelic Jungle Mix)

Berkson & What Play It Say It

Dan Berkson and James What are purveyors of bespoke house and techno, connoisseurs who have selectively issued choice singles, both individually and collectively, on labels such as Poker Flat, Sounderground, Crosstown Rebels and Dessous Recordings. After taking a creative respite in 2009, the London-based duo are back in action, recording, playing live shows and bringing fresh vibes to their chosen musical genres.

The story goes that Seth Troxler heard their new cut “Make It True” featuring vocals from JoJo De Freq at Sunwaves festival this summer. Troxler reached out to the guys and put together a remix package for his Play It Say It label.

We’re beyond thrilled to world premiere Larry “Mr. Fingers” Heard’s interpretation of the standout cut.

The Chicago house-music icon known for producing legendary tracks like “Can You Feel It,” “Washing Machine” and “Dead Endy Alley” crafts a chilled downtempo groove that gently tickles the ears and is guaranteed to move your feet. (Interesting fact: Berkson & What have recorded two tracks in the past with frequent Heard collaborator Robert Owens, “Reflections” and “Keep On.”)

Check out Mr. Heard’s sublime remix below, and keep an eye out for the original version of “Make It True” on Berkson & What’s forthcoming album, Keep Up Appearances, to be released on their own Modelmaker in January 2015.

Berkson & What feat. JoJo De Freq’s “Make It True” is released on vinyl on December 15 and digitally on Beatport on December 28.

Electric Daisy Carnival New York Announces Full Lineup

Obligatory press gush from Pasquale Rotella, founder and CEO of Insomniac Events: “We felt a buzz coming from East Coast fans and decided that New York, with the right venue, would be the perfect stop for EDC. We’re excited to bring Insomniac’s unique multisensory festival experience to the New York area, a kind of production I have yet to see delivered in this market.”

Obligatory press gush from Eddie Dean, co-owner of Pacha New York who partnered with Insomniac to produce the event: “It was a testament to the strength of our brands, and electronic music in general. New Yorkers are a tough crowd to please, but they could hardly contain their excitement for a chance to experience EDC at home.”
