As Shaun Frank opened his set with Disclosure’s hot track titled “Bang That,” we knew we were in for a night of endless grooving at Slake. The deep, rolling baseline and erotic, chopped vocals from Kaleena Zanders in Chris Lake & Matroda’s remix of SNBRN’s “California” had bodies on the dance floor moving in ways I didn’t think were possible.
Another seductive dance track expelled from Shaun’s fingertips was “Okay” produced by Shiba San and this track is more than just okay, I mean, it’s released on the Dirtybird label so we expect nothing less. His remix of Kiesza’s “Take Me To Church” truly harnesses the unique sound that he brings to the dance floor.
The crowd was grooving extra hard when they heard “Yoohoo” produced by Dusky and the Hunter Siegel remix of 3LAU & Nom de Strip’s “The Night” featuring Estelle’s sexy vocals was another crowd favorite. The Hot Since 82 remix of Green Velvet’s “Bigger Than Prince” is always a treat to hear live and the audience at Slake thoroughly enjoyed it as well.
Shaun dropped his collab with Oliver Heldens titled “Shades Of Grey” featuring vocals from fellow Canadian and immensely talented vocalist, Delaney Jane. This track, although unreleased, has been getting heaps of attention since Heldens played it’s live debut at Ultra Music Festival. It will be released on Spinnin’ Records shortly along with another upcoming release from Shaun Frank titled “All About” -out May 18th on Dim Mak Records. NYC welcomes you back anytime!
