This week’s One To Watch comes from Ashley Beedle & Waterson
Ramrock Red Records are delighted to introduce Waterson; a multi-faceted artist, producer, songwriter, composer and bon viveur par excellence who teams up here on the ‘Ego’ EP with legendary music producer/remixer, Ashley Beedle. With over 4 million streams of his 2015 ‘Tell Me’ dance classic, Waterson is currently enjoying massive BBC Radio1 exposure on Annie Mac + Nemone’s radio shows with his collaboration with remix giant KDA and their track ‘Scars’.
‘Ego’ is Waterson’s first single, taken from a selection of new musical outings with Ashley Beedle – he explains, “this track is about the battle between ambition and inner peace. I became interested in the idea of having to drop my own ego to move forward with my craft, dispensing with the ‘false self’ and allowing the ‘real me’ to evolve – the lyrics developed during this process”.
The tempo and feel of both the ‘Vocal’ and ‘Club’ Remixes invoke the flavour of those late night, slinky, hypnotic tracks played at famed NY nightclub, the Saint or the legendary, bacchanalian parties on Fire Island in the 70’s. Let’s face it – who doesn’t love a sleazy, twilight hours, electronic bassline while pondering the Meaning of Life at 3am in the morning? The Kryptogram remixes transport you to those afternoon pool side parties where glamour and sophistication rubbed shoulders with a splash of Campari, soda and a long, cool breeze. With its simple but deadly synth hook and the plethora of remixes to choose from, ‘Ego’ will to burrow into your brain and your play box – to resist will be like trying to eat a donut without licking your lips.
