Friend Within – “The Renegade”

friend-within-the-renegade

Not content with owning the dance music scene with their beautiful Settle LP, Disclosure has announced the first release on their Method Records imprint. Dropping on August 19 will be a four-track EP from Friend Within, who we’re very familiar with by his work for dirtybird, helping usher in this bass-heavy house music charge, but there’s something about “The Renegade.” Wildchild’s “Renegade Master” was a massive hit in 1995, so much so that three years later a ’98 version was made to keep the tune growing. The “renegade master” lyric was huge, and blasting over a numer of soundsystems worldwide, and has been turned into a staple of many a DJ’s set. Great to hear this one get a 2013 update, throwing it atop some HUGE melodic bass. If your parents were into dance music and they hear you blaring this, they might get that odd look in their eyes when it gets going.
