Simon Field x Adam Griffin x James Hurr – You On Red (Feat. Aya Anne) (Spotify)

“The beat shakes your body and those sensual vocals can set you on fire. When four artistic minds work together, the result cannot be indifferent at all. Maximize the volume and let this EDM banger do its job in the most effective way!”

Producer extraordinaries, Simon Field, Adam Griffin and James Hurr have dropped the immense sounding ‘You In Red (feat. Aya Anne)’ on London’s hit-machine, Perfect Havoc. A disco-tinged deep house tune with rolling bassline, it brings together each producer’s unique touch: the analogue sound from Field’s studio, the contagious rhythms of Griffin, and Hurr as a master at work.

Simon Field is an awarded producer and songwriter based in Oslo, Norway with a distinct sound produced entirely through analogue gear. His releases on Perfect Havoc include ‘Is It Real?’ with Tobtok & Oliver Nelson feat. Salena Mastronnani (8 million streams), ‘Shake The Tree’ (18 million streams), and ‘Wildfire’ feat. Andreya Triana (3.6 million streams).

Champions of Field’s sound span DJ A-listers Tiësto, Hardwell, David Guetta, and Benny Benassi, while over on the Big Screen and TV, his music has been featured in the Academy Award nominated film, Passengers, and in the Netflix series Elite. With 80 million global streams to his name and the curator behind the Ibiza Deep House playlist on Spotify with over 500,000 fans, Field is a constant force in creating original and modern sounds.

Producing alongside Field is Perfect Havoc co-founder and producer, Adam Griffin. Alongside Robert Davies, Griffin has steered Perfect Havoc into one of the most in-demand independent labels around, underlined by platinum certified releases and generating over three billion global streams. His contagious house cuts include ‘The Sting’ and ‘The Stand Off’ (BBC Radio 1 Future Anthem) and ‘Don’t Over Think It’ produced with house icon Todd Terry.

Also on the lineup here is rising superstar James Hurr. His credits as a production and mixing engineer are an impressive ‘who’s who’ of the UK’s best-known dance talents. Hurr is behind Mark Knight’s ‘Yebisah’ and Prok & Fitch’s ‘Wow’, plus dozens of tracks, collabs and remixes with Michael Gray and Frederick & Kusse to name just two. Toolroom Record’s Mark Knight said that Hurr “was on fire” and the man wasn’t wrong. Hurr’s Perfect Havoc debut ‘Jump In’ with legendary DJ Michael Gray was so well received that it was played for 8 straight weeks on BBC Radio 1’s Party Anthems.

The sumptuous vocals on ‘You On Red’ come courtesy of Aya Anne. Signed to Perfect Havoc Management, the 22-year-old from West Sussex first appeared on the label as a feature with Pink Panda on ‘Only Love’. Her song writing skills take ‘You In Red’ down the narrative of leaving your lover on the dancefloor both literally and figuratively. Together with production of Field, Griffin and Hurr, Aya Anne gives the track an emotive and refined quality to get truly lost in.

There’s an extra level of creativity in the output of Perfect Havoc seen so far this year from its trademark crossover dance sounds to tech house and afrobeat house. Having given rise to six UK Top 20 singles including the No.1 single ‘Head & Heart’ by four-time Brit Award nominated producer Joel Corry and MNEK, the question begs: where will the label head next?

With a talent-packed schedule for 2022 that also features releases from Just Kiddin, PS1, Wankelmut, Tobtok and Freejak, Perfect Havoc is guaranteed to serve up a ton of new accessible and underground house sounds from both breaking and established talent.
