Globetrotting DJs, Brazil’s Vintage Culture and UK’s James Hype join forces for their first-ever collab.
Vintage Culture and James Hype are teaming up to lay claim to being the dancefloors favourite with their bouncing, housey, club focussed single, “You Give Me a Feeling,” serving as their debut appearance on Insomniac Records.
With thousands of miles sitting between them, two of the most in-demand dance exports are closing the geographical gap from their respective origins by way of a temperature raising cross-continental collab. The beloved Brazilian iconoclast Vintage Culture is met halfway by breakout UK sensation James Hype, as they come together to concoct an irrepressible potion of sublime tech house.
Bold and full-bodied, “You Give Me a Feeling” takes its claim as a true masterclass in club seduction. A sultry, pitched-down vocal hook presses those primitive buttons ever-so gently, while slinky rhythms and beefy basslines work their magic to bring uncontrollable urges to the surface. Crisp drum programming and stripped-down sensibilities keep the temperature rising through the roof. Once the club-pleasing record settles into its full stride, Vintage Culture and James Hype effectively turn those deep-seated desires into an endorphin-riddled climax that will leave listeners suspended in a dazed state of stimulation long after the concluding beat finishes the job.
The multi-platinum hitmaker Vintage Culture, née Lukas Ruiz, has made himself comfortable at the top of charts and festival lineups the world over. His uncanny ability to coalesce ear-burrowing hooks with pulse-raising grooves carries over to create a universal appeal that translates on the decks just as much as it works for at-home streaming. The proof is in the numbers, as evidenced by the more than 2 billion streams he’s generated globally from standout tracks such as his smash single “It Is What It Is” featuring Elise LeGrow, the artisanal collab “Coffee” with Tiësto, as well as his far-flung remixes for Meduza, Diplo, David Guetta, and Moby. His dexterity inside the DJ booth is an animal all on its own, which attendees of this year’s EDC Las Vegas were thrilled to experience first-hand during his sun-kissed opening ceremony back-to-back set alongside Solardo, which was an added bonus to his closing solo main-stage performance at kineticFIELD.
Rapidly becoming the DJ’s DJ, and globally recognised hitmaker, London-based James Hype has built up a buzz that has lived up to the definition of the latter half of the moniker he’s adopted. With a reputation preceding his every move on the worldwide circuit, James Hype has positioned himself as a must-see spectacle due to his technical transitions, one-of-a-kind bootlegs, ear-pricking mashups, and a crate-digging inclination only few can match. Those skills have led to a hectic touring schedule with stops at O2 Arena (London), Echo Arena (Liverpool), MEN Arena (Manchester), SSE Wembley (London), as well as gigs in Ibiza, Australia, Dubai, the US and beyond. His tastefully executed remixes have roped him into the inner circle of international heavyweights, having been commissioned by Bruno Mars, Meduza, Imanbek, Icona Pop, and Rita Ora. However, his original creations made him into a certified sensation in his own right, with the platinum “More Than Friends” and the HARLEE-assisted “Afraid” breaking into regular rotation on BBC Radio1, Capital Dance, and KISS100.
“You Give Me a Feeling” not only finds common ground between the colossal chart-toppers, Vintage Culture and James Hype, but the effusive collab will permanently attach itself to our collective pleasure point the second it hits shelves today!
