Lickin’ records presents the first release in 2017 – LOVE THE WAY is the new single by the ambitious production team E.M.C.K. & Alex Denada. Their lickin debut single SUNRISE received a lot of attention last year and was featured on the famous AFTERHOUR compilation by SONY MUSIC. The follow up LOVE THE WAY doesn’t rank behind and carries on the ‘typical’ sound elements of the producers who are also releasing tracks on other labels s.a. HOUSESESSION or DANCE OF TOADS to cover their enormous output.
A good vocal and melody hook, new and fresh lead sounds and a beat mixture between deep and progressive house – this is how you can characterize their sound. It’s quietly difficult to pigeonhole the guys – but even this is their own, remarkable style.
Their new single LOVE THE WAY will find the way to all house and dance floors again for sure!
After nine months of waiting for the clearance Nick Hommer is now launching his debut single and puts his hand on the classic “C + C Music Factory” hit from 1990 – one of his own “Alltime favorites”. He worked on the track together with his friend & colleague Steve Cypress (Current single “take me away”) from different directions. While Nick’s original mix, with a decent power, a hot break and a fat main part, covers the commercial bigroom area, Steve Cypress’s remix pushes straight forward! In contrast to other cover versions, there is even the original Rap Part included in the remake. To complete the package, DJane Jane Vogue, a top-notch DJane, made her debut on lickin’ records with a strong electro future house Mix !

Germanys Top DJane Cassey Doreen continues her successful story and releases 2 new contemporary versions of her first hit “Girls Just Want To Have Fun”. Her first cover version of the famous Cindy Lauper classic song was launched almost 5 years ago in 2011 and it was the “kick off” for a long number of successful single releases. Meanwhile Cassey Doreen has already released 12 singles, numerous remixes and mash ups , which always found their way to top 10 positions in various Dance Charts . Reason enough to revise her first hit for today and so it is not surprising that the two new mixes are held in the current Deep House and Future House Style including completely new vocals also.
Right in time for valentine’s day German DJ Alan-Lee strikes back after the success of his debut single GIVE IT UP.

No party is safe from her, whether @ IBIZA,TURKEY, UK, BELGIUM, SWITZERLAND, ITALY, SLOVENIA, BULGARIA or AUSTRIA. CASSEY plays primarily to the public and not for herself and always manages to connect her charisma with the music. Her next single is ready to go just in time for the summer season: BORDERS is the first step of a new definition of sound moving her away from the big room dance sound to the future house and deep house club sound which is actually played at all venues worldwide.

Since more than 10 years the German DJ & producer duo Sunloverz has been active in the electronic music scene – the world’s first successful hit was published in 2005: “Shine on”. After working as a successful remix artist for stars such as Michael Gray or Dr.Kucho & Gregor Salto more hits such as “Show Me ” or “Summer Of Love” followed in the coming years. The first collaboration with producer Hoxtones carried out in 2014 was a remix for the Sunloverz song ” Now That We Found Love 2014″ also appeard on lickin’ records. While the remix was still rather commercial big Room / bounce oriented the actual collaboration between the artists is strictly in a deep / commercial future house style .
” Before” combines the genre- typical vocals with a new deep / future house beat and the sound goes to the current “most trending ” hits by artists like Oliver Heldens or Pep & Rash . There are many songs around now in that style but Sunloverz & Hoxtones managed this in a positive way and added a catchy and retro sounding vocal hookline to the well known future house style. The beat drop goes directly into the bloodstream and the ear. “Before” is the 100th release for the label lickin ‘ records which is definitely a good choice for the anniversary title .
