James Ash returns on Vicious with ‘Right In The Night’
Slinky four-to-the-floor beats, subtle melodies, and a moody, female vocal, reinvent this for today’s ears, again showing off James’ production finesse.
James Ash’s musical journey comes full circle with the release of Right In The Night, the latest release of Vicious Recordings.
An original member of multi-platinum selling group Rogue Traders, James Ash returns on the solo path with the first single since 2016. Taking the original Jam and Spoon classic Right In The Night, Ash showcases his formidable production skills delivering a fresh version of the tune perfect to hit hard in 2020. Slinky four-to-the-floor beats, subtle melodies, and a moody, female vocal, reinvent this for today’s ears, again showing off James’ production finesse.
Kicking off with the catchy and infectious female vocal, the tune rapidly increases its energy with a soothing and hard-hitting beat. The legendary piano lines excellently flows through the track to jump into a minimal and deep drop made by a wide baseline and that irresistible vocal we’ll love.
When I began DJing, “Right In The Night” was the biggest tune in the world. Over the years, I’ve always wanted to return to it, and honour the original with my own take on it. You could say this record is 27 years in the making. But it also has a clear eye to the future, and I hope to bring this song to a whole new generation of fans. – James told us about the track
