Dancefreax Tune: Shermanology – The Only Way

Shermanology The Only Way 2013 Dancefreax
One of the most creative families on earth has released yet another
 awesome hybrid of ear slamming, nasty, jumpy electro and familiar Shermanology signature vocal progressive house. ‘The Only Way’ can lift crowds to ultimate heights. Festival main stage banger all the way!

Ever since this talented family, inspired by jazz, funk and soul, formed a solid dance act, they were an extremely popular name at clubs and festivals. Their unique sound in electronic music is like nothing heard on the clubland circuit now, and not ever.

They started as Andy and Dorothy, musically schooled by their Father and Uncle who were soul artists in their own right, The Sherman Brothers. Growing up with an appreciation of the greats, the pair only listened to the finest funk artists – Prince, Luther Vandross, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Bebe & Cece Winans and Earth Wind & Fire. In 2006 they released ‘3 Minutes To Explain’. This enormous club track was alongside the 2 greats, Fedde Le Grand and Funkerman, which validated the duo’s colossal potential. Leon Sherman then entered the frame to create once of the most diverse music families around.

Shermanology’s most recent release, ‘Can’t Stop Me’, a collaboration with superstar Afrojack, was a huge dance hit and made it’s way to almost every dance floor worldwide. As for fresh release ‘The Only Way’, the prognosis says this will be this summer’s next big club banger. ‘The Only Way’ is already supported by the world’s top notch DJ’s such as Steve Aoki, R3hab, Thomas Gold and played in international radio shows by Sander van Doorn, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Nicky Romero, Afrojack and David Guetta.

Make sure your ears are glued to the stereo, because ‘The Only Way’ will take over the speakers!

Introducing: Emma Hewitt – Burn The Sky Down

Making the world a little more colorful with each song, Australian singer/songwriter Emma Hewitt is proud to present her long-awaited debut album, ‘Burn The Sky Down’. Fusing ambient and pop with electronic music, each track reveals a new side of the multi-talented songstress. While taking the listener on an eclectic ride into her private universe, Emma’s warm voice lights the sky and shows exactly why the world is ready for her.

Having worked with EDM’s producer elite and winning the ‘Best Hi-NRG/Euro Track’ award at the International Dance Music Awards of 2010 with Dash Berlin collaboration ‘Waiting’, has made Emma Hewitt one of the fastest rising names in dance land. Her characteristic and versatile voice became a favorite both in and outside the EDM scene. Outstanding live performances and acoustic sessions have made her a universal crowd favorite. With ‘Burn The Sky Down’, Emma Hewitt is ready to be more than a featured vocalist.

Thinking outside the box, the album slides down multiple genres and reaches far beyond the expected. Emma: “I didn’t particularly focus on being driven by a specific genre or style so much for the album. I really tried to let each song be what I felt it should be, so stylistically it is quite eclectic, although there is definitely a common thread running through the entirety. We worked with producer Lee Groves on the album, he has worked with artists such as Marilyn Manson, Gwen Stefani and Depeche Mode, so he was great at creating the ambient soundscapes we were looking for. I wanted to cover some different territory to what people may have traditionally heard or expected from me, and to show that no matter what style the tracks were produced in, the essence and spirit of the songs remained the same. In the end we have a landscape of different moods and dynamics that will hopefully take the listener on a bit of a journey. Each song will have an ambient, or slightly pop version as well as all the various dance remixes.”

‘Burn The Sky Down’ brings you the warm and welcoming ‘Colours’, the driving ‘Foolish Boy’, dark and seductive ‘Rewind’ and ‘Crucify’, and the haunting ‘State That I’m In’ amongst many other musical jewels. Bursting with touching lyrics, strong vocals and heart-rending melodies, this is Emma Hewitt in full flight.
