Is that his real name? Is he from Europe? People sometimes get a little confused about Harrison Crump and who he is, so let's set the record straight. Yes, it is his real name and no, he's not from Europe. This Chicago born and bred native still lives in "The CHI" and has become that rarest commodity known in dance music - a highly sought-after producer, remixer, singer and songwriter. This guy's songwriting abilities have led to a close musical relationship with long-time friend Felix da Housecat and have earned him production credits on P-Diddy's dance music project Divided Souls. Now it's time for a hot collaboration from his upcoming artist album. Hold You So Close features the incredible vocal stylings of Chicago legend Ron Carroll and includes remixes from Ian Harper and the mighty Roy Davis Jr. This one here is gogin to be a favorite with the deep house crews!

Hot on the heals of Seb Fontaine & Jay-P's 'Love Bite', Seb returns alongside producer Alex Blanco with two huge techno/tech house cuts 'Hotel Toast' and 'All This Shit'. Seb Fontaine needs no introduction. Heavyweight house hitter, Seb has been at the top of game for years and in 2008 he shows no signs of slowing down. In the past year alone, unsung background production hero Alex Blanco has worked with the likes of Jon Carter, Oliver Lang, Jamie McHugh, Grayson Deepgroove and, of course, Seb Fontaine. Finally emerging from the shadows he is set to release a string of solo tech-house and techno releases and collaborations in the coming months, all of which are already receiving serious support from a select group of A-list DJs. 'All This Shit' and 'Hotel Toast' are two catchy tech anthems that will have any dancefloor rocking. Full of killer bass and techy undertones, both tracks deserve your full attention.

A2R718 – Lady Foursquare “Xcite Bike - featuring Lil Surge” A-Squared Muzik –
*Receiving support from DJs: Danny Tenaglia, Laurent Garnier, Dave Clarke, Dubfire, John Selway, DJ Chus Chus, DJ Hyperactive, Lee Foss, Meat Katie, DJ Misjah, Naveen G.

Laurent Garnier – “Full support 4 out of 5”
Dave Clarke – “Full radio support. 4 out of 5”
Dubfire – “5 out of 5”
Meat Katie – “Nice, i will get some use out of this! 5 out of 5”

Coming off the success of her remix of DJ Pierre's "Tha Dance", which the acid master himself praised as, "HOT!...the best mix on the song!," , A-squared is proud to present The Lady Foursquare's debut solo release. "Xcite Bike" defines her sound which has received strong reviews from Mixmag and Resident Advisor (not to mention Felix da Housecat). The original (featuring Lil Surge) weaves elements of her two midwestern parent cities together, perfectly balancing Chicago's jack with the minimal motor sounds of Detroit in a blend reminiscent of Paul Woolford's "Erotic Discourse". The result is an 8 bit wonderland, filled with purring synths, sounding more likely to be operated by joystick than midi controller. Legend has it that the automation for the filters in the original was drawn to resemble the ramps in the original Nintendo game. The Angel Alanis Rework is a massive and rawkus warehouse burner which is somehow completely modern and reminiscent of the glory days of acid-house. Also includes a DJ Tool.
