Fanatix were the first UK production team to have a release on Kenny Dope’s Dope Wax Record label. They’ve made a name for themselves both remixing high caliber artists such as Blaze, Terri Walker, Ultra Nate, Dennis F & Kenny Bobien; and touring the world (Brazil, Dubai, Asia, North America and beyond).
Their first ever long player, This Thing Of Ours, is a blend of the finest House music featuring the cream of UK & U.S musicians and vocalists. From musical soulful journeys to deep techy tracks and sample based mash ups, the album has something for everyone to enjoy.
Featured vocal artists on the album are Sara Divine – whose long standing artistic relationship with Louie Vega has seen her release soulful house classics such as ‘Special’ & ‘Never Forget’; Shaun Escoffery – famous for the house classic ‘Days Like This’, who delivers the goods in this emotional appearance on the LP; X Factor finalist Dionne Mitchell – who shines with a big voice that rivals diva’s from across the pond; and finally Alex Mills – whose sweet R n B sound has been recognized by Chris Blackwell and signed up to his new record label Black Punk.
Behind the scenes there are the mighty Toni Economides: the man behind the sonic of Fanatix’ Productions and one of the world’s leading dance music mix engineers and Albert Menendez, responsible for the music on a number of the album tracks… This Cuban born, Miami raised keyboardist has a talent on par with the all time greats – his work with Masters At Work is some of their best. For This Thing Of Ours he has enlisted the help of possibly the world’s best bass player, Gene Perez, who regularly shares a stage with George Benson, and the amazingly talented keyboard player and songwriter Mike Patto, member of Reel People and Restless Soul.
Fanatix will be touring relentlessly in 2008, an will be available for interviews along the way.
