AS the club’s respected DJ, presenter, host and broadcaster on BBC Radio 1, Arielle Free adds ‘producer’ to her list of expertise.
Her debut single Soul Full on D4 Dance with Bristol duo Mortimer and vocalist Joe Killington is a fluid mix of vibrant disco and pleasant house music for the dance floor.
The new release marks an exciting start to producer Arielle’s journey into the new year after months of working in the studio, while also DJing in between Creamfields, Printworks, We Are Fstvl Mexico and more.
To celebrate last Friday’s dropped release, we caught up with Arielle Free this week and asked her to share some of her favorite dance tracks that are sure to soften the music. that January blues.
Arielle Free, Mortimer ft Joe Killnignon – Soul Full
My first official release and I couldn’t be happier to do it with D4Dance, the ultimate imprint from legendary record label Defected Records. Mortimer and I immediately clicked into the studio, after being recommended by my good friend Gotsome. We focused on creating an uplifting in-house song that moves every part of your body. I went to Joe’s DM room to ask if he’d put his vocals down. His voice is no different from others going from the highest note falsetto and gospel style to the dark and deep blues. He was amazing. I’m very proud of this release and have tested it in the club, it delivers pure joy on the dance floor.
George Feely – Make my heart sing
I first heard this song popped up on someone’s instagram video and immediately on Shazam. It’s the perfect piece of music that delivers the great feeling we all need during a dreary January. Dropping on Edible is Eats The mark of everything I’ve seen it drop in the movies and think it’s going to be a big hit for those looking to have some fun.
LP Giobbi, Born Dirty – 24
LP is currently one of my favorite DJs. Her productions are usually piano leading on big digital tracks, but this collaboration with Born Dirty has another advantage. If you get a chance to see her live, believe me when I say you’ll be blown away. ENERGY for days.
TSHA – LOOK ONLY
If you don’t know, find out. TSHA is going up. This song Only L is the one that made me fall in love with her and her sunny, futuristic electronic pop. I love Nimmo’s voice on this and I love how she can mix all genres and moods and take you on a true partying journey. If we’ve ever played at the same festival or club then TSHA is the one you’ll find me up front for.
LF System – Dancing Cliche
Two boys from West Lothian are absolutely smashing it right now. They released 5 EPs at once full of amazing editing and this is one of the standout tracks. I made it my Big Whopper on my Early Breakfast radio show on BBC Radio 1 and then Tune of the Week. It’s on our playlist now, and it’s the perfect choice if you need a bit of a mood boost or a little impromptu afternoon fun.
Amyelle – Push it
Keeping it on a flexible Scotland Amy is making Sotland proud with her intense productions and packed DJ lineup. She’s also great for night out but we Scottish girls always are! This ‘Push It’ song not only sounds great in the club, but breaks it down if you need a run or exercise track. PB come!
Ewan Mcvicar – Plain Outta Luck
The biggest song in my set at the moment. Except mine, of course. Haha. Ewan is the soundtrack of the year 2021 with the supersonic tune ‘Tell Me Something Good’. A song that goes nowhere. This follows on TMSG and leads us down a similar path but with your more direct disco sound. I love these classes and it’s my peak time song for the club. An incredibly talented producer and DJ who knows how to draw a crowd. He’s also one of the most Scots you’ll ever meet, which makes him a legend.
Gotsome – Not mine
The house leading the piano is not ashamed. Sharlene Hector’s voice is loud, bold and absolute. Gotsome is for me one of the best producers. He can do everything from bass hit to acid hit to big happy house numbers like this. I owe him a lot because over the years he has been really instrumental in keeping me going and guiding me through the crazy DJ world we work in. up with!
Husko – Good night
Take a trip to Malta now and hit you with a rock-solid dance floor, this Goodnight track has it all. Captivating vocals, magical bass and all the feel of a disco. Malta is producing some incredible talent like Husko, who I’ve been a fan of for a long time and I can see 2022 being fantastic for him and his DJ teammates. I dare you not to dance this one.
Sandy B’s Sam Divine Remix – Aint no Need to Hide
I love Sam, I love how she’s overcome an entirely male-dominated industry and has been at the top of the game for over a decade now and she’s getting nowhere. This product for me, I always come back. It’s a bathroom song, clubbing, roof-top volume up, house-facing big bass and I love it. If I’m doing an early set or warm up this song is my goal when I want to take it up a notch. Pure energy and pure home music. All hail queen Sam.
