Producer, Remixer & DJ, Hervé is back with his eagerly awaited second studio album, ‘Hallucinated Surf’ ahead of its release on June 17th 2016 via Skint Records.
‘Hallucinated Surf’ sees Hervé’s diverse production styles exhibited to the fullest throughout and features a number of standout collaborations with the likes of Zebra Katz, Meridian Dan and Steve Mason. The album is also split into two parts, the first comprising of Hervé’s signature bass house sound, which was recorded entirely at his studio in London. The second half of the album explores a more downtempo and experimental style which Hervé recorded in the countryside, demonstrating a more conceptual side to his work and a progression of his album, ‘The Art of Disappearing’.

SMILING THROUGH WIDE EYES
Jozef K & Winter Son are a formidable force. 'Smiling Through Wide Eyes' on Skint Records emphasises their capabilities. Remix duty has been handed to Swedish duo Mr Tophat & Art Alfie and Berlin based Argy.
Jozef K & Winter Son explained of the EP, “[it’s an] old school record made in homage to UK rave culture. Expect drum breaks, rave pianos and bass,” accentuated by the lyric, ‘ We make this prayer to you.” 'Smiling Through Wide Eyes' commences the release with an unstoppable energy that wouldn't sound out of place in the bygone parties of The Haçienda, awash with loopy horns, piano and vocals. The heady 'Starlight In Another World' is framed by a scattered female vocal, craving the magic of those early hours. Mr. Tophat & Art Aflie add a heavier edge with their remix of ' Smiling Through Wide Eyes', whilst Argy spirals the energy levels with his high powered remix.
