We're really pleased to see two music publishing projects we have been part of reach number one in their respective categories in the Toolbox Digital charts this week - thank you for supporting each release!
K8-e / My Kind Of Company
(Bass Jumper Remix)
My Kind Of Company was originally released earlier this year - the Original mix aimed at the earlier sets and reminiscent of old school warm-up was released with a remix from our own Paul King that gave the track a beefed up, up tempo for peak time sets.
Bass Jumper was asked to come up with a cheeky vibe and he has come up trumps - we love what he's done to this summer anthem - you can hear a sample and purchase a copy from TOOLBOX
This is the first of a number of projects Martin Cook (aka Bass Jumper) is working on for We Love Hard House. We love his style and energy which comes through loud and clear on the tracks he produces. We'll be revealing more information soon but this is not a one off from a producer that has much to offer our scene.
The release also features a remix of Mezmerized - a Craig Jones track that first saw the light of day when the original mix was released last month. The latest mix courtesy of Paul King, like the original, is getting much airtime thanks to the support of DJs across the hard house spectrum. Both the original and the latest remix making the upper reaches of the charts as soon as they were released further underlining Mezmerized as being a showcase of Craig's production skills which are consistent in terms of his trademark beat perfection that accompanies addictive lyrics and punchy solid bass lines. Both the original and Paul King remix are available from Toolbox and from other leading download and streaming sites:
Paul King Presents Trauma XX Part 2
The interest in this album was high well before its release so we knew it was going to do rather well; but even we were surprised to see it sitting at Number 1 for CD Albums just a week after its launch. The 10 track album features a plethora of collaborations with some of the scenes favourite talent and feedback has been overwhelming. So much so we can reveal a Part 3 is now being planned.
Paul wanted to embrace the retro way of buying a physical album with Part 1, which gave it more of a personality than a digital download. The feedback from customers agreed and the CD format extended to this follow-up. With that in mind we decided to offer a limited edition album cover branded mug - only available when purchasing the album. We had no idea how popular the mug would be but it seems that Paul's fans like the concept as the vast majority have opted to include the mug with their purchase.
We called Paul to tell him his album was number one and to say he was humbled is an under-statement:-
"The Trauma XX project has been my most enjoyable in my career, working with some of the scenes biggest names and rising stars has been fun and a real privilege. To see the album at Number 1 is the icing on the cake, I can't thank everyone enough, from those with tracks on the album to everyone that has parted with money to buy a copy"
Paul King's career spans over 25 years, his tracks are an integral component in the hard house DNA - many of his tracks are floor filling chart toppers. Confirmation of Paul's popularity being as high as its ever been is underlined in the success of Trauma XX Part 2 and the overwhelming demand for spaces at his six hour showcase event at Bar Soho in October. When Trauma XX Part1 was released his fans and hard house colleagues said that it was Paul King at is best. Part 2 appears to be trumping that... yet we also know there is much more to come.... watch this space for details.

For those of you that are eagerly awaiting to receive Paul King’s Trauma XX 2 CD Album, we’re afraid we need to ask you to wait just a little longer.
There has been some issues surrounding the artwork, which has suffered a number of delays. We’d managed to negotiate a much later deadline with the CD manufacturer as a result, meaning that first editions of the album would be produced last night and despatched today; but the issues still persist.
As we’re not confident the album will go to press in the next day or so, and as not to re-set expectations each day until it does, we’ve decided to delay the launch of Trauma XX 2 by one week.
The albums revised release date is now 27th June, with pre-orders being shipped on 26th June or earlier.
Paul King along with Ben at Vicious Circle extend their apologies.

Paul King VS Bass Jumper - Turn Me On - OUT NOW
Our first release of 2019 is from our own Paul King (Trauma, Pants & Corset, Terrance & Philip) who teams up with Martin Cook, AKA Bass Jumper. Turn Me On is a euphoric slammer and is sure fire to tear up the dance-floor.
Our 2019 season in style with an amazing capacity crowd. The sellout event saw some travel huge distances and in some cases in atrocious weather to reach Eastbourne. The feedback has been amazing, thank you everyone for supporting the event. Photos are now available via our Facebook gallery however we've noticed that the image quality is not great. As standard, to make images load quicker, Facebook compresses each one (effectively reducing the resolution) which is often not that noticeable. We've therefore loaded hi-resolution versions on to our website as well.
Each event we run at West Rocks, whilst following a format of sorts, is individual and we are always evolving as we go. Our friends at London Sound who provide the sound and lighting equipment follow that ethos and this weekend they unveiled new lasers. Watch the video to see.
