Now Playing Tracks

Following the success of their ‘Earl’ EP on Switzerland’s Hive Records, Berlin-based House staple, Oliver $, reunites with Swiss Jazz House aficionado, Jimi Jules, to bring their anticipated, debut release on Defected, ‘Pushing On’.

‘Pushing On’ opens with an infectious percussive medley composed of tropical triangles and melodious 808-like cowbells. With the gradual introduction of the moody, Frankie Knuckles inspired bass line and tailing piano chords, the track slowly transform into an energetic homage to classic Chicago House.

Quick to take centre stage, the track also features dusky vocal samples from English Soulful Jazz revival band, The Quantic Soul Orquestra. Merging effortlessly with the wispy cymbal crashes, the song’s title and central lyrical theme, “Pushing On”, falls and confidently rises to drive the track to its spirited climax.

Already household names in their home countries, ‘Pushing On’ is sure set to solidify Oliver $ and Jimi Jules as international House providers. ‘Pushing On’ also includes a dub version of the original.

‘Pushing On’ is out 24/03

This is my own tribute to my dear and beloved big brother Frankie Knuckles. He loved Chaka and also Ashford & Simpson (the fantastic and talented duo who wrote the song).

The short story is: I was recently granted with a copy of the original multitrack session and I couldn’t help myself, specially because this is also one of the TOP 5 songs in my life. It took me 3 days to rework and mix it for complete, so you see how engaged I was on this. I truly felt like I was being guided by Frankie. I’m 100% sure he would be proud of this.

I hope you enjoy it too.
