Maddslinky - Further Away (ft. Tawiah) (Hint Remix)

A thoroughly modern ballad from this producer-vocalist dream team of Maddslinky (aka Zed Bias) and Tawiah, “Further Away” is one of the standout tracks off Maddslinky’s hugely acclaimed ‘Make A Change’ album and will be released as the second single on 24th January 2011.

In perfect synthesis with Maddslinky’s swirling, spacious and deeply atmospheric dub-flavoured beats, new Warners signing Tawiah’s unique vocals marry her contemporary and down-to-earth, homegrown style with a genuinely affecting sense of heightening emotional drama, giving “Further Away” an arrestingly immediate yet lasting appeal. The song was voted No. 3 Track of the Year in Gilles Peterson’s 2010 Worldwide Awards earlier this year, despite not having been released as a single or even as part of the album promo yet – it was purely based on his heavy support of an upfront mp3, which went down an absolute storm with his Radio 1 listeners. And with regular heavy specialist radio support around the world, this eagerly-awaited single release is sure to cement it in the playlists.

The single release of “Further Away” includes a dazzling array of remixes from the hottest underground talent around, including Falty DL (Planet Mu, Ramp Records), Illum Sphere (3024, Hoya Hoya, Fat City), fellow Tru Thoughts bass monster, Hint; Funk Butcher, El B, Dawn Raid, Dubchild and more.
