"Earlier this year, TAZ was perched at the top of the Traxsource Chart feat alongside Inaya Day on the legendary Mousse T's outstanding record 'Rock The Mic', a track that you now hear constantly played out, literally everywhere.

Having both been prominent figures in the UK urban scene of the 2000s, TAZ notices the DJ support Ruff Diamond is showing for 'Rock The Mic' and re-connects -'bro you're making Disco records, let's get in the studio..' and 'Extra High' was born. Combining with the talents of aspiring Berlin based vocalist Wanja Janeva, the three came together and smashed out the track during an overnight session in a South London studio.

Ruff Diamond's production talents shine through here, delivering a modern Disco record on full Funk overload. The groove will have you hooked instantly, lavishly laced with Quincy Jones-esque percussion and Larry Levan-esque cosmics, making you feel ohh soo good. Topped off with punchy horns, funk'd up guitars and Moog monosynth solo, this jam will have the party people squelching with delight.

Described by Ruff Diamond as having 'the Janis Joplins' and 'the Teena Maries', Wanja Janeva blesses 'Extra High' with her undeniably moving and soulful vocal abilities. Her energy and delivery is sheer beauty on the ear, sitting perfectly in tandem with a stellar performance from TAZ, who is super on point with a fun filled rap of typical TAZ party rocking qualities.

One to shake up the dancefloors for sure."
