Horixon are London based outfit Andrew Armstrong and Joe Sambrooke. For their first few tracks they asked house vocalist legend Robert Owens and the enigmatic Jacques Teal to do the honours. The fit with Robert Owens on ‘Brighter Day’ was perfect, updating his delivery to something modern, as well as keeping it classic and referencing strongly the sound of early house. Same goes for ‘Great Things’: perfect match with the introspective vocals of Jacques Teal. The track is dreamy and melancholic, simply beautiful.
‘Great Things’ will be one of the many standout tracks on The Green Collection.
We invited Locked Groove to remix ‘Brighter Day’. Scuba himself signed him to Hotflush for his debut release and his remix of Duke Dumont’s ‘The Giver’ on Turbo received praise from respected names in the industry. More recently we’ve seen him broadening his sound on labels such as Permanent Vacation and John Talabot’s Hivern Discs released his long awaited remix of ‘It’s All over’ by Pional. His remix of ‘Brighter Day’ is pure magic and a perfect soundtrack to a never-ending night out in Berlin.
