Haçienda Records, the label offshoot of the internationally famous Manchester club FAC51 The Haçienda, kickstarts a series of special new releases as the club celebrates its benchmark 40th anniversary year.
With original resident DJ Graeme Park, Peter Hook, Haçienda manager Paul Fletcher and The Haçienda team curating the label, they will release both digitally and on vinyl. First up is a brand new, original and unreleased track “Me Time” from the hugely respected French DJ/Producer Charles Schillings in collaboration with the legendary vocalist Robert Owens.
The original mix of “Me Time” recorded by Charles and Robert opens out with an elemental afro beat before connecting with a mesmerising electro line that instantly draws you in as Robert lays down a carefully curated spoken word narration. His tone injects a unique vibe to the already distinct production. As Robert craftily weaves his way between speech and sung elements, his trademark style shines through. Subtle with a moody approach, this song exudes an immense quality as the groove maintains a resilient vibe throughout.
On remix duty Samy K steps in with a more traditional house take on the track. It fluidly propels Robert’s vocal directly towards the dance floor. With a tightly wound production, his mix has a timeless impact that wouldn’t be far from the original Haçienda sound.
Robert will be performing the track live for the first ever time at FAC 51 The Haçienda Easter Good Friday at Tobacco Dock London which marks their first event of the year and spearheading a run of pivotal showcases throughout 2022 for the brand.
Me Time is set for release on 6th April
