Alan Fitzpatrick and DJ Deeon team for the first time on the UK’s Shall Not Fade record label.
In a very special edition of Shall Not Fade’s Basement Tracks series, legends Alan Fitzpatrick and DJ Deeon team up on a Chicago-inspired house track, which has been remixed by Shall Not Fade family member, DJOKO.
A figure who needs little introduction, Alan Fitzpatrick has long been electrifying dance floors with his big-room selections and production on labels like Drumcode and his own We Are The Brave. Usually focused on techno, this house focused release sees him collaborate with the equally illustrious DJ Deeon from Chicago.
DJ Deeon is a legendary producer whose musical heritage is in Booty and Ghetto house. He is synonymous with the Dance Mania record label plus his own imprint Ghetto Rhythm Composers.
‘Shake That Thang’ cruises along with a deep house beat whilst Deeon’s unmistakable vocal chops float over the top, offering a blissed-out take on the genre before Cologne’s house music stalwart DJOKO who brings the funk on a buoyant flip.
Rounding things off, ‘Learning to Love’ sees Fitzpatrick fly solo with a sunshine-doused melody and euphoric drops. Built around a funk and soul sample, this one’s sure to be heard on festival stages all across the globe this summer.
