For many years little known to many Darren Tate (better known to many as DT8 Project, Jurgen Vries and Angelic) has been pushing the boundaries of progressive house and house boundaries under his “8 Ball” and “Funskysober” pseudonyms. Having delivered massive cuts such as his reworking of Jam and Spoon’s “Odyssey To Anyoona”, his remix of My Digital Enemy’s “Cuba”, plus huge releases such as “Let It Go”, “Utopia”, “Dark Matters”, “Momento” (with MDE’s Harry Diamond), “Shunt”, “The Searching”, “Sweet 16”, “Boyamahe!” and “Osaya” it’s unsurprising his records have been supported by pretty much every major DJ in the world.
With recent smashes including “Electrified” (as Tate & Diamond) on Anjunabeats, “Sunshine Into My Life” (as Funkysober with Boy George and Marc Vedo) and his recent remix of George Michaels “Every Other Lover” it comes as no surprise how this infamous producer has continued to go from strength to strength crossing all genres.
Mondo Records is proud to launch its new Mondolicious house sub brand with Mr. Tate’s latest 8 Ball incarnation “Liquor Cabinet” featuring the stunning vocals of artist Desi Valentine. With a truly unique house meets blues vibe this has been blasting it’s way across dance floors around the world.
Already ferociously climbing the official Music Week chart and set to top all the dance charts, Liquor Cabinet is tipped to be massive. Early support from many world class DJs including Sister Bliss / Faithless (MOS Radio), Andy Durrant (Capital Radio Weekend Player), Black Legend (J Reverse) Ibiza king DJ PP, Franco Demulero, Subliminal’s DJ Roog, US main room master Darin Epsilon, D.O.N.S, Des Mitchell, Alias Rhythm, UAE Radio 1’s Greg Stainer to name just a few.
