Tennerz: Rhemi feat. Ilana Lorraine – Feel Me (Rhemi ‘Funk-O-Holic’ Mix) (Rhemi Music)
Quite some time, as a matter of fact, without a mention to Rhemi who are regulars on these shores. Their latest gem – ‘Feel Me’ – givin’ us the opportunity to reopen the line with them. Now if you ask me why we don’t rate it the same way as Traxsource, the reason is quite simple. ‘Feel Me’ or, at least, this remix – as its formulation suggests it (Funk-O-Holic Mix) – is just not “Soulful House”.
Built up on a killer synth bassline, ‘Feel Me’ somehow brings us back to the souvenir of Toni Smith‘s stellar ‘(Ooh!) I Like The Way It Feels’. Meanwhile its vocal arrangements stand apart. Most likely embedding that little kitsch thing one could find on Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band‘s ‘Cherchez la femme’. Or Pink Martini‘s ‘Je ne veux plus travailler’ although to a different extend.

Rhemi is a production duo and record label based in London, with the sole purpose of releasing great quality House music.
Behind this imprint and production team we have one of U.K.’s leading DJ/producers Neil Pierce. A man who also made his way as a promoter for throwing amazing secret studio parties and Club Nights in London. Meanwhile, producer/musician Ziggy Funk made himself a serious reputation with his production work on various labels. But also for his DJing, throwing down eclectic sets from House to Funk/Soul music.
After working together on previous records in the past, the two decided to come together permanently. This resulting in the launch of the label – Rhemi Music – during the Summer of 2013. With every release, they grew from strength to strength and are now recognised as a label and production duo to look out for.
The ambition for releasing quality music is at the forefront for them. And you can expect it always, whether it be original work, remixing or through live shows…
A quick looks at Rhemi‘s repertoire suffices to realize how the groove is at the epicenter of their productions. Most oftenly dealing with jazz and funk vibes. Such as on ‘Shake Your Body’ or ‘Give It To Ya’, meanwhile displaying a live feel with the help of high caliber musicians and / or singers…
Among their highlights, ‘Diamond’ and ‘I Can’t Wait’ along with HanLei. 2 hot gems we welcome as our Single Of The Week at their respective time. With the latter standing as our track of the year 2016. Meanwhile both ‘Back To The One’ featuring Alex Mills and ‘Rise Up’ featuring Vanessa Freeman remain essential investments. This in addition to the stellar Discoid ‘Beat Within’ featuring Cassius, with remix courtesy of Opolopo. Not to mention the blowing ‘We Had Enough’ featuring SheZar. And, more recently, ‘Feel Me’ featuring Ilana Lorraine. Or ‘In The Morning’ by Louie Vega Starring Adeva on the remix front.
