Ernest Saint Laurent "Do Ya Dub"

Out Now on Audio Therapy

Originally released back in May 2003 on his own label Ernest, in addition to his self titled debut album, Ernest Saint Laurent's 'Do Ya Dub' quickly become a favourite of clued up house aficionados, and also a DJ called Dave Seaman. In fact, it's remained a favourite of his to such an extent that he put it on his recent 'Therapy Sessions' compilation, and subsequently licensed it for a full release on his Audiotherapy imprint,

Ernest's own 'Original Mix' is an excellent upbeat house mix, on a slightly different tip to what you might expect from the Audiotherapy imprint. 80s style beats lead nicely into the infectious groove that sits right at the heart of things, but its the bassline that will have you jiving as it slides and grinds it's way into your mind.

And for those who want something tougher, 'Stel & Good Newz' are on hand to provide the remix, turning in an impressive rolling progressive style mix. Dubbed out beats and big hooks cut through layer upon layer of pads and chords, and the whole mix is topped off with a killer riff that ricochets it's way through the centre, building to a floating break where the bassline makes its late appearance with dramatic results, guaranteed to send the crowd into spasms

A sublime slice of french house, produced by a classy underrated producer who deserves far more attention that he gets. 'Do Ya Dub' should hopefully help to address that somewhat, and backed with another superb remix by Stel & Good Newz, this is yet another essential 12" for anyone who need some audio therapy.
