This music, these beats - BKT

So here it is, the second release for BKT on the label.

On the A side we have the stabby, piano riff driven 'original mix'. Coupled together with cute vocal chops and infectious sax riff, is the spoken 'this music, these beats' top line.
Over on the flip we have 'this dub' a dance floor friendly version. Maintaining the sax riff and vocal edits, this version has all the trademark BKT stab chord riffs as well as the usual rough tough drums.
Another sure fire dance floor slammer. with plenty of bounce!

Brian 'Keys' Tharme - Biography

Unlike most House producers, Brian comes from a musician background rather than having started out as a DJ. In the mid-80′s, he was a  founder member and keyboardist of the Brit Funk band called 'Private Funk-Shun' which featured a fledgling Angie Brown as a backing vocalist, then in 1987, he formed the 'Tony Bartelli Jazz Quartet' playing piano and pursuing his love of all things Jazz. This band expanded to a six-piece known as 'Jaszamba' playing latin, funk and fusion styles until the end of the 80's.
In the early '90s Brian started work on dance music production, and in 1993 met his soon to be partner  Gavin 'DJ Face' Mills. This new partnership  went on to form the legendary Catch Productions record label and studio. This was a golden period for Brian, and during this time Catch Productions collaborated with most of their fellow pioneers in the UK Garage scene and released several hits such as 'Just Gets Better' by TJR and 'Bad Boys Move in Silence' under the name Baffled Republic .
Through their collaboration with Tuff Jam, Brian became their session keyboard player of choice, and went on to do sessions with Bobbi & Steve, Booker T and Dave Lee (Joey Negro) to mention just a few.
Brian then  spent a couple of years around the late 90′s collaborating with Richie Malone, Phil Drummond and Bobbi and Steve, but then decided to take a break to devote  time to his young family.
After an absence of nearly 10 years, Brian returned to team up with DJ Wally Walton to form production team Soulfunktion in 2012. After a string of releases, they parted company and Brian followed a solo career in production, online session keyboards and most recently his new imprint Bassball Records.
