Dance music favourites TSHA and Mall Grab feature on a new remix package for the Model Man single ‘Don’t Cry’ featuring East London artist Hamzaa, out now on Mahogany Records.
Kicking things off, TSHA delivers an enchanting, stripped-back rework of ‘Don’t Cry’ that accentuates the wistful piano melodies. In contrast, the Mall Grab remix sees the Aussie talent tap into his trademark upbeat electronica sound as he delivers a club workout steeped in emotion.
First released as a single last September, ‘Don’t Cry’ then featured on Model Man’s acclaimed debut album, a record glowingly described as pitting “the physical against the cerebral, often with striking results,” by online dance music platform Data Transmission. The record received support from Jack Saunders and Sian Eleri on BBC Radio 1.
At the core of Model Man is Mark Brandon, who has been making waves with some of dance music’s biggest players. Fusing ambient electronics with elements of bass culture, Brandon’s creative stance pits the physical against the cerebral, often with striking results. Since releasing music, he has garnered support from BBC Radio 1, Clash Magazine, Defected and underground favourite Alan Fitzpatrick amongst others.
Model Man also played a sold-out headline show at London’s Corsica Studios on 4th November, with Brandon bringing his productions to life with a band setup consisting of Tommy Galbally (bass & keys) and Andy Grant (drums). Following this show, Model Man has now announced an upcoming show at Oslo in Hackney on 3rd March.
Touted as ‘one to watch’ by Mixmag, Billboard, DJ Mag and BBC Radio 1 tastemaker Pete Tong, TSHA is quickly emerging as one of the most exciting young artists around. She debuted on the legendary Ninja Tune imprint at the tail-end of last year, with acclaimed EP ‘Flowers’ hailed as “a bold snapshot of TSHA’s sonic evolution” by NME.
Australian wonderkid Mall Grab has enjoyed a meteoric rise over the last few years to become one of the most in-demand electronic artists on the circuit. On the production front he has released head-turning singles and EPs for the likes of Shall Not Fade, Steel City Dance Discs and his own Looking For Trouble imprint.
With contributions from two of the most exciting young artists in dance music, the ‘Don’t Cry’ remix package doesn’t disappoint.
