about

Despite the troubles globally faced in 2020 it’s safe to say that The Allergies have been a shining ray of light, having had an absolutely glorious year, releasing their fourth studio album, achieving the ‘A playlist’ on BBC 6Music and Radio Eins, climbing high in the NACC US college charts, and generally receiving critical acclaim from a world that had an understandable appetite for some joyful and fun music in their lives…

And they are not done yet! As they return once more to continue their mission of reshaping vintage sounds for the modern dance floor. Packing a couple of dope tracks that of course fit their ethos of creating music that is both fun and funky.

Not content with sampling everything they can get their itchy scratchy fingers on, they’ve decided to look back into their own catalogue to appropriate their own material into something new. Yes indeed, the samplers become the sample…

And given their expansive funk-filled legacy, why wouldn’t they? Especially given that the sample in question is of the third unofficial Allergy - Andy Cooper (Ugly Duckling) and his jumping vocals from their track ‘Main Event’.

‘Jumping Off’ sees that vocal restyled from a classic hip hop cut into a party-starting, beat-tastic, dance floor bomb a la Fatboy Slim, this is one that has the magnetism to make it a surefire crowdpleaser from the moment the needle drops…

And flip it over for more fire - ‘Gather Around’ is a chic, good time, upbeat, soul shaking track with so much bombastic-ness packed in that could make Shaggy blush.

The good news doesn’t stop there as these two DJ weapons are going to be packed together on 7” on a limited run of 300 just before the festive season really gets going. As always they sell out fast so act quick to get in on the action!
