Massive new club anthem on MofoHifi Records, with groundbreaking remix from Phonat.
London based electro producer Sharooz was first introduced to the dance world by MofoHifi in 2006 with his debut release “Hell Yeah!” which received over twenty BBC Radio One plays and featured on numerous high profile compilations.
Three-years on and his star is still rising. Sharooz’s productions can now boast a clutch of leading taste-maker fans including 2 Many DJs, Moby, Mylo, Erol Alkan, Boys Noize, and Kissy Sell Out; an appeal which hasn’t gone unnoticed by club promoters, securing him DJ bookings in Serbia, Switzerland, Russia, Spain, Denmark, Sweden, USA and France. After topping many of the main dance download charts earlier this year with “Get Off”, Sharooz is back with his third release on MofoHifi – “Adrenalize”.
Adrenalize is a tough, big room crowd pleaser combining his trademark simple biting basslines and epic builds, with a triumphant piano break that has been raising the roof in Ibiza over the past few weeks.
Early support for the track comes from Fake Blood, Steve Aoki, Meat Katie, Grum, Dada Life, The Young Punx and many others and it looks set to be one of the underground dance records of the year.
On remix duties, MofoHifi artist Phonat, building up to the release of his forthcoming debut album ‘Phonat’, delivers a radical and innovative remix that creates a sound fusing the worlds of Dubstep and French house. Never one to deliver a predictable sound, the seven-foot Italian has been inspired by the increasing integration of the Dubstep scene into mainstream Ibiza clubs such as “Reclaim the Dancefloor” to create a Dubstep influenced groove that can be easily dropped by house DJs in their steps without changing tempo.
MofoHifi Records releases its second track for hot new talent Sharooz, which follows on from ‘Hell Yeah’, which is regarded by many as one of the pivotal records of 2006 and has been featured on numerous compilations across the globe, with support from the world’s DJ elite and received 17 BBC Radio 1 plays in the UK, with support from Jules, Tong and The Cut Up Boys.
My Distressor is a delicious serving of massive bigroom House filled with a stripped hypnotic groove the record has already received numerous plays on Riley and Durrant’s Galaxy Show and on Kiss FM from Big Al. There has also been support from the likes of Mason, Roger Sanchez, Jason Nevins, DJ Dan, Bryan Cox, Graham Gold, The Young Punx, Scumfrog, and Donald Glaude
My Distressor comes with a seriously hot set of mixes. Bruce Aisher from Branccacio and Aisher/Suicide Sports Club brings a paired down minimal vibe to the package, whilst 40khz creates a roaring slice of rock ‘n’ rave inspired madness. Finally Kid Massive rounds off the package with some primetime hands-in-the-air funky electro business

“Hell Yeah!” was Sharooz’s legendary breakthrough track on MofoHifi Records which launched him as an electro producer to watch for the future. With its stripped hypnotic groove and absolutely epic breakdowns it is one of those classic club tracks that are 100% guaranteed to whip the crowd into a frenzy whenever and wherever it is played.
It was The Young Punx (who co-own MofoHifi) who spotted this little gem and signed it to the label immediately after hearing Sharooz himself DJ the record. The track was given its name unwittingly by Robbie Rivera : Sharooz sent him a demo version of the track while he was working on it, and asked Robbie in an email if he would play it. Robbie’s email reply was simply “Hell yeah!” and that became the name of the track.
With relentless radio one play from Judge Jules, Pete Tong and Roger Sanchez this become a classic track that still sounds as good now as the day it was released.
