Fake Forward & Amba Shepherd – Rewind (Original Mix + Adrian Lavelle Remix)
House music has historically taken cyclical turns towards broader taste buds and universal audiences throughout its dotted history and it truly came back on itself in 2014. Melbourne duo Fake Forward are now ready to claim their stake in the race for commercial house retribution, bringing Amba Shepherd into the equation for an unprecedented transition away from her big room prowess for the final quarter.
As the vocal talent behind Hardwell’s “Apollo,” Shepherd’s transition to the commercial house market comes reassuringly smoothly. A stripped back and groovy nod to the new found staple sound of the electronic dance market, Fake Forward’s simple formula paired with a catchy topline sparks a promising surge forward for the Australian duo and their national songstress. Aidan Lavell’s semi-progressive transition brings the sound rawest and more uplifting form into the equation, capping a striking sign of life from the young sub-label here in 2014.
