Already 2010’s anthem of the House scene.
‘It gives me goose bumps, it’s quality from start to finish; it’s a return to the finest virtues of house music, this is brilliant.’ Pete Tong.
Take note people, this is the biggest original house record of the moment, this record oozes class, screams hit and stands out from other current vocal dance records by miles. This is a house masterpiece from an original House Master. Dennis Ferrer has produced a timeless track, one that will doubtless become a classic in its own right.
As we all know Pete Tong only focuses on the tracks that are exuding the most heat, and sure enough he was quick to pick up on ‘Hey Hey’ making it his Essential New Tune immediately. Not just that, the track achieved a Beatport No.1 position in record time, a rapid reaction that no other house track has achieved recently.
Big dance records with super cool vocals are rare these days, very few cross over with chart potential, but there are exceptions; X-press 2 had their opportunity with ‘Lazy’, Sandy Rivera had his with ‘Finally’, Kenny Dope with ‘The Bucketheads’ and now it is the turn of Dennis Ferrer to have his moment with ‘Hey Hey’.
“There are not too many vocals coming out these days that don\'t sound dated in what is considered soulful vocal house. Music is about evolution, pushing boundaries, keeping current yet not forgetting to employ some of your roots. Also remembering that at the end of the day a good song you can sing to will make most people dance.” Dennis Ferrer.
Dropped into sets by some of the world’s DJ elite since the end of summer, causing a massive reaction each time it’s been played, ‘Hey Hey’ has seen the less fortunate relentlessly searching, requesting it and scrambling to own it, until now…
Although best known as the most in-demand underground house DJ, Dennis is no stranger to chart success, it was his mix of Fish Go Deep’s ‘The Cure And The Cause’ that pushed the track to its peak, and his mix really made Blaze’s ‘Most Precious Love’, both UK Top 30 national chart performers.
Simon Dunmore the head of Defected Records stated:
“We have been working with Dennis Ferrer for over five years knowing that he was an exceptional talent. He has made, or been involved with, many great records that have been released on Defected so it was only a matter of time before he produced a record of enormous potential. “Hey Hey” is an anthem on the House scene and the groundswell of support is so rapid that we believe that this deserves to be a crossover success."
