Tennerz: DJ Able feat. Angela Johnson – Out Of My Head (TR Records)
Is it the approach of the festive period? Just feels like there are so much nice vibes coming around. ‘Out Of My Head’ definitely makes no exception. As a matter of fact, it might pretty well turn into the obsession of the moment, as its title suggests…
Taking the centerstage, songstress Angela Johnson gets herself into the skin of the one who, dealing with a bittersweet affair, tries everything she can to find the right attitude. Meanwhile DJ Able delivers the right smooth and moody ingredients on such circumstances.

“When I was younger, we used to go out to the old house and garage nights. There, we and buy all the tape packs. I didn’t know what I was listening to though”, says Able of his route into playing House. “I started looking into the names of the tracks, and each time you find one producer, they lead you to someone else. And then you just get lost!”
No need to say how things have evolved since, with the man now running a weekly radio show – ‘Gimme Groove’ on Rinse FM. This in addition to various residencies across the UK. Not to mention the start of an impressive discography.
The London living DJ/producer has a penchant for uplifting vibes. Deep basslines and cosmic synth effects representing to him the essence of soulful House and the genre’s timeless appeal. Andrea Love, Donald Sheffey, Marissa Guzman and, more recently, Angela Johnson counting among those he’s collaborated with.
