Griffintown Records is the new identity of long standing House music label Mile End Records, which has featured music from artists including Moscoman, Darius Syrossian, Lee Walker, Cera Alba, Raffa FL and Hector Couto.

To many a fan of House music Roy Davis Jr. is an artist who needs little introduction with a career that spans over two decades and includes releases on labels such as Strictly Rhythm, Large Records, Peacefrog Records, Rebirth and Classic.

Recently his track “Gabriel” originally released in 1996 was repressed, and already an anthem, found its way to being a top selling record of 2015. Roy Davis Jr.’s ability to write timeless records is a skill many admire and his skills behind the decks see him regularly playing international DJ sets in all four corners of the globe.

The release also features the vocals of Terry Dexter, who was first introduced to the world in 2005 by Patti LaBelle on the Tonight Show. Both a singer and actress, Terry Dexter is an influential artist who along with a chart topping solo album, has sung with Simply Red and at the Baseball World Series. Now an American icon that has performed alongside Wynonna Judd, Michael McDonald and Eric Benét, her vocals on this release are nothing less than stunning.

Also featuring are two remix versions of the original single track titled “Just A Little Bit Of Love” that are provided by Emmaculate plus Jan Pienkowski & Fadel.

Jan Pienkowski is a Canadian artist who has previously featured on Monsieur Musique, and for his callaborative remix he joins forces with Fadel, who along with previous releases on Griffintown Records has also featured music on Get Physical and Toolroom.

Providing the second rework is a solo remix from Emmaculate who amongst other achievements has previously released on Aid to the SouLLess.

The original mix of “Just A Little Bit Of Love” is jacking house with shuffling two step hi-hats and a powerful vocal full of soul. Uplifting stabs and bass squelches provide energy to the bumping groove of this straight up dancefloor anthem with a subtle UK Garage influence.

Track two is the Jan Pienkowski & Fadel remix, which is a stripped back version of the original with the addition of some bassline funk. With the original's lead stabs cut back the vocal is given space to cut through the mix, and the track becomes deep and chic with the addition of some tribal percussion.

Finishing the release is the second remix, this time from Emmaculate who takes the track down an experimental route. Adding brash live percussion and some jazz infused synths this raw remix with just a touch of acid is wonderfully quirky and perfect for those looking for something a little different.
