Cutting their teeth on London’s underground, Ben Lewis and Josh Ludlow, aka Make A Dance, debut on Classic Music Company with club-inclined three-tracker ‘I Need Somebody’. Already supported by the likes of Folamour, Bradley Zero, Cinthie and BBC Radio 1 kingpin Pete Tong, Make A Dance (also the name of the duo’s imprint) allows the pair to demonstrate their love for the floor, which is reflected in this swish EP. Title track ‘I Need Somebody’ leads, followed by the Guilty Pleasures Mix of the cut, sampling the soaring vocal of Kechia Jenkins’ 1987 cult hit for two dancefloor-ready heaters. ‘Acid Cult’ closes out the EP, as warm acidic synths, an elastic bassline and percussive breaks form the backdrop to playfully cut-up news headlines from the second summer of love. A masterclass in artful sampling, this Classic debut is one not to be missed. 2022 is looking bright for Make A Dance.
