Party Like..Shooting Horses!

Party Like..Shooting Horses! Up-and-coming British DJ and producer Shooting Horses has played alongside Solo, Zombie Disco Squad and, as you can see pictured above, Jesse Rose – in what looks like absolute euphoria to whatever varieties of “house music with a London twist” that Mr. Horses dropped that night at Jackmode vs Pelski back in December. The last minute cancellation of Oliver $ meant that Shooting Horses, aka Rob Swaine, had to think fast as he took to the decks, completley unprepared. Yet he still managed to blow us all away with his mixture of bassy numbers, UK funky and techno that saw the crowd go wild. So it’s not surprising that only half a year later, Shooting Horses can boast a forthcoming EP under Dubnoir Music and a collaboration with Fat! Records man of the moment The Living Graham Bond.

The latter, aptly named ‘Premier‘, has seen a very warm reception since its online promo release earlier this week. Originally toying with different vocals and melodies, the pair settled for a simpler outcome with one goal in mind – to let the bass do the talking..”people love bass”, admitted Shooting Horses in conversation with EB about the track which is out 6th September via Party Like Us Records.
The Living Graham Bond & Shooting Horses – Premier by The Living Graham Bond

Although Shooting Horses is under the impression he’s been keeping rather a low profile so far this year, we’ve seen him support the likes of Girl Unit, Warrior One, Mele and A1 Bassline in between writing tracks for the EP, working on remixes, making podcasts and maintaining his blog Loose Synths which he shares with The Specialist and DLVRY. Not restricted by genre but defined by their love of all electronic music, the blog has gained a strong following throughout the past year – the guys are even discussing serious future plans.. Loose Synths Records perhaps? Whatever the future has in store for Shooting Horses, EB are sure he is the one to watch right now.

Catch him playing at his own Loose Synths’ Notting Hill Carnival after-party in London on August 28th…and here is a free track from the man himself.
POW!
