|Rising dance talent Henry Daniel has unveiled his new single ‘Shake That’, out today via Cool FM & BBC Radio 1 DJ Connor Coates’ new label Lift Me Up Records.
A club-ready tech house bomb, ‘Shake That’ combines a bumpin’ bassline and slick grooves with the most infectious of vocal samples. The debut single on Lift Me Up, it is the first in a series of tracks the label plans to release. With its founding mission to put amazing dance music in front of people – from crossover dance records to club focused tracks – Lift Me Up will be a positive place for like-minded individuals to come together and collaborate.
“I have been using my radio shows as a platform to help break new dance acts over the years and I want the label to do exactly that,” Coates explains. “To help develop the next generation of talent, alongside working with established names. I come from a DJing background; so, I want this to be at the core of the label. I want to create a platform for the DJs signed to ‘Lift Me Up’ to be able to play their music to the public and get real time responses and feedback.”
Just 21-years-old, Bath-born Henry Daniel is currently studying at BIMM College in London. Coming from an accomplished musical family, he is a multi-instrumentalist and has been writing songs as far back as he can remember. However it’s only in the last five years that he has begun producing music and developing his raw sound.
The landmark first release on Lift Me Up Records represents the start of something invigorating and special.
