Founder of Boy’s Own and Junior Boys Own and an active part of Defected sub-label Faith, Terry Farley is a bonafide house legend. Teaming up with XOYO and Music Box Radio resident Wade Teo, the duo recruit New York-based spoken word artist Kameelah Waheed for a party-starting house cut on Radio Slave’s Rekids.
Terry Farley and Wade Teo team up with Kameelah Waheed to release their new track ‘Why We Dance’ on the hugely respected Rekids imprint. The release is joined with two varied remixes that also make their way onto Radio Slave’s legendary label. Some Rekids alumni include Carl Cox, Ian Pooley, Mark Broom, Hybrasil, Commix, X-Coast and many more.
Across the A-side, robust drums, rocking low end, and piano stabs combine to provide the perfect backdrop for Kameelah Waheed’s infectious vocal. This jackin’ house track is a cleverly crafted production with a catchy hook and pulsating groove throughout.
On the flip, Farley and Teo deliver their ‘Lonely Dancer Remix’ to kick off the B-side, adding subtle percussions and floating pads for a grooving rework. Rounding out the release, Farley recruits Kevin Swain for the collaborative ‘Angels Take Control’ remix, with dubbed-out claps, menacing low-end combining for a heads-down closing track.
‘Why We Dance’ releases tomorrow. Pre-order it on Bandcamp here.
