Tennerz: Sean McCabe feat. Pete Simpson – New World (Sean And Lem’s Original Vocal) (Good Vibrations)
We would hardly find nothing more exciting than opening a new chapter in our existence. With a new love synonymous with a new life. And most likely a new world. Brit singer Pete Simpson perfectly recaptures the feeling on this soothing jam which Lem Springsteen of the Mood II Swing fame co-wrote. Sean McCabe crafting the perfect environment, dropping warm chords and funky guitar licks over a swingin’ rhythm pattern. You don’t wanna miss this.
Besides, hard to not think of the hard period Pete has gone thru over the last years. A period that has seen him fighting against cancer. Therefore giving an extra resonance to ‘New World’. Sendin’ him our deepest thoughts on what we hope to be the way to definitive recovery for him.

– Bristol-based producer Sean McCabe has had plenty of time to develop his own sound. He released his first tracks in 2003 at the early age of 17. From then, he spent the last decade fine-tuning a trademark sound that is effortlessly soulful.
McCabe made his name in House Music. He developped a long-running relationship with seminal US garage label King Street Sounds. Eventually remixing the likes of Dennis Ferrer, Roy Ayers, Blaze and Todd Terry.
Since then, he’s amassed an impressive discography, delivering reworks for labels like Z Records, Vega Records, Tribe and Quantize.
A quick listen to any of his productions or one of his DJ sets will confirm this attractive, emotion-rich aesthetic. While rooted in House, his sound regularly takes on flavours of Disco, Boogie, Afro and much more besides.
As a DJ, he has forged a reputation at the legendary Southport Weekender, where he has performed regularly. Anyone who can impress the notoriously knowledgeable SW crowd must be doing something right.
Refreshingly, he seems to have no particular aspirations to play in gargantuan clubs though. And he admits to preferring gigs in small, intimate venues, where he can make a connection with the crowd.
As a producer, McCabe is constantly learning and evolving, taking his sound in different directions. He admits to a love of vintage synthesizers. Meaning these vibes one can get from listening to classic New York Boogie and 80’s Soul.
– It’s quite surprising to note no one has ever written a biography in regards to Pete Simpson. Come on… We’re talking about one of the greatest voices hailing from the U.K. along with Omar and Tony Momrelle! With All of them having a lot in common with each other as a matter of fact. Beginning with their instantly identifiable voices. But also their undeniable versatility.
A skillfulness which has allowed Simpson to embrace many different genres. From Acid Jazz, along with Domu to Drum & Bass with London Elektricity (check the outstanding ‘Impossible To Say’). But also his memorable collaboration with Joey Negro‘s The Sunburst Band. Not to mention his regular collaborations with House producers. This bringing us to gems such as ‘In My Heart’ with Bobby & Steve to ‘Gotta Make It Right’ with Groove Assassin. And more recently ‘Thank You’ with The Layabouts to name a few.
