Guestlist | Playlist: Michael Gray & James Hurr

House | Friday 18th June 2021 | Arren

Michael Gray & James Hurr take over our playlist, and have packed it with bangers.

Two signicant names in house, Michael Gray and James Hurr are the latest to takeover our playlist. Gray is a Grammy nominated DJ/producer who has built a career which has lasted decades. He's been behind some global hits, was one half of Full Intention and naturally has been spinning at some of the worlds best clubs and parties. His career may be decades old, but he is still at the forefront of house after scooping Traxsource's Bestselling Single in 2019 and then crowned Artist of the Year by them in 2020.

Joining Gray is James Hurr. Signee to Perfect Havoc who's career is skyrocketing. Despite having a steady stream of his own tracks coming through, his credits as a production and mixing engineer is a star studded crown of achievement. Boasting tracks and remixes from Mark KnightProk & Fitch and Hoxton Whores. With his engineering and own personal tracks all smashing it, it's little wonder why Toolroom head honcho Knight said recently Hurr "was on fire".

They've just come together for a release. Landing on Perfect Havoc, 'Jump In' is an absolute weapon. Retro basslines, electro bleeps and fast lyrics from London-born New Yorker RoRoe. It’s a party tune through and through. With the lyrics celebrating raving at home made more poignant with the recent extension of club closures.

Marking the release Gray & Hurr have taken over our playlist. Filled to the brim with sick tunes, we’ve had it on repeat since first seeing it. Speaking on their selections Gray & Hurr said: "Since things went a bit crazy last year we've been glued to our studios, working on tons of different music projects and hopefully this playlist can give an insight into what we're about."

They continue: "Our two production styles can be quite different, with Michael's house sound inspired by soul, funk and disco and James' club productions having a harder electronic edge. We start with our latest collaboration 'Jump In' on Perfect Havoc and move through a selection of our own house productions into a harder club sound at the end. Everything is either produced or written by Michael Gray and James Hurr, except 'Waited' and 'Stay Inside'."
