House Like This Ep - The Carry Nation

We're soo soo excited to announce the release of "House Like This' EP from The Carry Nation, their follow up to 'This Bitch Is Alive'. The release also includes 'This Bitch Is Alive - Part 2 Remixes'  from our London extended family / 2 of the best DJs in town Luke Howard & Severino (half of Horse Meat Disco), as well as NYC's legendary AL B. Plus label boss Hannah Holland stamping some late night stomp into the title track. 

The Batty Bass New York Series showcases some of the legendary talent that serves the city's underground house scene, 'This Bitch Is Alive', as The Carry Nation's debut tune announced. These artists and tracks are to be heard in secret loft spaces, where carry carries on and on til sunrise and beyond.

Part One of the series has pricked up the ears right across the DJ board worldwide with Ritchie Hawtin, DJ Hell, Laurent Garnier, Chloe, M.A.N.D.Y. Severino, Luciano, Ivan Smagghe, Kim Ann Foxman, Matt Walsh, Erol Alkan, Justin Robertson, Geddes, Joyce Muniz, Felix Hotchip, Sinden, Drop The Lime to name a few supporting. 

"Who lives in a House Like This? New York's finest… DJ Nita & Will Automagic. They are nothing other than legendary expert DJs and dancefloor magicians , their potent combination as The Carry Nation has literally created dancefloor gold dust. Debuting the incredible 'This Bitch Is Alive ft. Viva Ruiz', they carry on to their 2nd release with Batty Bass, 'House Like This'. Bouncy basslines, congas and a groove that penetrates the dancer to make them werk the floor and ignite the party. 'Oh it was wonderful, Build your house of the future, House like this' announces the vocal, giving us The Carry Nation's own slice of future New York house.

Label boss Hannah Holland's House Like This remix serves up touches of acid thunder, a pokey baseline and magnetic snare rolls, building the house with an element of UK old skool for a late night deep affair.

The Carry Nation - 'This Bitch Is Alive Remixes' Part 2

London legends, Luke Howard & Severino (half of Horse Meat Disco) have expertly taken This Bitch is Alive into a techy hypnotic bitch of an alive remix. Late night strings, rims, claps and snares march the dancefloor deep into the night.

Al B's New York flavour for 'This Bitch Is Alive' takes us back to the era of Sound Factory with a full on tribal werk out. Al B made this mix back last year and the response on the dancefloor has been nuts , particularly from NYC's runway ballroom scene kids. It would only be right to spread the love to all the floors!

Thanks BB X"

"Top follow up from Carry Nation! Hard to follow up This bitch is alive but I think it's been done. Hannah's remix is right on point too! Horse Meat Disco and Al Be's reworks of This Bitch is Alive did a solid job keeping the old school house vibes but bringing a welcome pumper to the remix package. Keep up the great work guys!"
