New Music: @djnikkibeatnik x @TheRealMzWalker - "People Start Talking"
After mucho hype by DJ CJ Beatz on BBC Radio 1 Xtra and shout-outs from artists including Kelis - it's time you checked out the new release from electronic music Producer/DJ/Remixer act, Beatnik - AKA DJ Nikki Beatnik and brother Statis.
Featuring the powerful soulful vocals of Brit artist and all-round lovely lady Terri Walker, blended with Beatnik's signature genre infused sound, "People Start Talking" is a slick and stylish production showcasing a polished mix of electro, house and hip-hop elements.
The track also runs at the kind of pumped-up speed that would require a glo-stick and about 5 strong vodka's before I got on the dancefloor shouting 'techno techno techno!'.
For those of you who read my interview with Nikki on this very website, you'll know she's also a fashion force on the decks, so naturally the Beatnik duo were chosen to spin some tunes at the Scottish Fashion Awards earlier this month.
