Twenty-five years on since Together‘s seminal Hacienda rave classic ‘Hardcore Uproar’ reached #11 on the UK charts (signed to Pete Tong‘s FFRR label), Nightgeist is the brainchild of Suddi Raval, one of Together‘s original band members, whose passion for electronic music in all its forms still burns brighter than ever in 2015. A covert dance music collective hailing from the Northwest UK, the trio are producers, Suddi & Si and female vocalist Bekka. Their new single ‘Some Kinda Feeling’, marks the return of the unassailable underdog label House Trained Records and comes fully loaded with remixes from Dr Kucho! and Jaegerossa. The former needs no introduction, “The undisputed king of Spanish House”, having scored a recent BBC Radio 1 A-List record with Gregor Salto and Oliver Heldens, whilst the latter has gained strong plaudits from Pete Tong with ‘Move Your Body’ in recent months.
The second track in the E.P. ‘Horizon’, with it’s unavoidable Ibiza-friendly vocal hook (“I see the sun in the sky!”), comes charged with a remix from Ant LaRock who recently had success with remixes for the likes of Giorgio Moroder’s pairing with Kyle Minogue on ‘Right Here, Right Now’ and a collaboration with stable mate Todd Terry on Ministry.
A decade has passed since Mixmag first crowned House Trained “#1 Top Night In London”, thanks to forward-thinking line-ups, cutting edge flyers  and their unparalleled “No shit on the floor!” strap line. Rehab, a Ministry of Sound radio show and a short flirtation with a major record label followed with vinyl releases from the likes of DJ Disciple, Denise Lopez and Wolfgang Gartner, before founder Phil Loraine cut loose for the label’s first independent release – partnering with Suddi for a 21st century rework of‘Hardcore Uproar’ nonetheless – which gained heavy Radio 1 rotation and support from A-list Djs everywhere. Making a welcome return to the dance music fold for 2015, House Trained Records get set to make it’s mark on dance floors once again with their unwavering no-nonsense music policy.
