This Bitch Is Alive!

We're very proud to announce the debut release of NYC's THE CARRY NATION "This Bitch Is Alive" ft. VIVA RUIZ on Batty Bass. It's quite simply a clubland smasher, started life on the underground floors of NYC and has gone on to have amazing reactions from the dancefloors and DJS worldwide across the board from Luciano to Annie Mac to Ewan Pearson to Erol Alkan. The very talented Viva Ruiz also directed the "psychadelic ecstatic dance floor vampire insanity realness" video...starring the superstars of NYC's nightlife, with a zillion cameos including Jonte & Amanda Lepore! We love it and the remixes from Bubba ,
Gavin Russom , Sveta & Tokoloshe & Johnny Dynell are mindblowing. Plus Alex Noble's artwork (as usual) is outstanding. It's been amazing having so many artists work on this and make The Bitch come Alive! Thank you to all involved. Big up The Carry Nation for making such a classic! We Love you NYC xHH

Words by Dan Beaumont -

"We give you the four words that will soundtrack your deepest dancefloor moments throughout 2012… "THIS BITCH IS ALIVE!!"

This Bitch Is Alive is the creation of New York duo The Carry Nation - a pairing of Nita Aviance and Will Automagic. Will has contributed to music on labels like King St, Classic, Buzzin Fly and Nervous, Nita is a long-standing member of the legendary House Of Aviance, both have been working the best underground dance floors in NYC for over a decade and…Featured vocalist Viva Ruiz moonlights as the voice of DFA's The Crystal Ark and has a long history in New York's inhabiting the place where clubs and art meet.

This Bitch Is Alive is a Frankenstein's Monster of a track combining elements of house, techno, punk and electronica to devastating effect - this is a record with it's head and heart in the centre of the dance floor and the exceptional remixes

Batty Bass label-mate Bubba takes his 808 downtown and serves a brilliant slab of frantic subterranean basement acid… you can almost smell the smoke machine on this one.

Gavin Russom (The Crystal Ark/DFA) has laid down 11 minutes of dance floor magic that really has to be heard to be believed - starting off with Ron Hardy's morning alarm clock it tumbles into an epic genre-defying voyage deploying a hefty kick drum and a lot of imagination along the way.

Australian duo Sveta & Tokoloshe take you deeper with their mix, diving into the depths of a murky bass throb that develops into an atmospheric acid thumper laced with piano and danger

And finally New York's Johnny Dynell gives you big room drama, lovingly pouring his house heritage into an epic fix of rolling baselines, synth stabs and pianos. "

LOVE this release by The Carry Nation (Nita Aviance + Will Automagic). We've been playing a promo copy of the original for the last month or so at the Bassment party in NYC . . . can't wait to drop Bubba's remix!

Mandy Graves (NYC)
I have been loving this track since first listen about a year ago, and I still play it almost every set. It never ages and so to see all this happening around it now, all these amazing remixes being made and all these incredible DJs giving it life around the globe, it all just gives me a GIGANTIC smile. Viva's voice mixed with the magic that bleeds from the duo of DJ Nita and Will Automagic, makes this one of the most infectious tracks I've heard in years. Looks like this Bitch will live a very long life.
