Cotterell is an artist who has featured on some of our favourite House music labels such as Gents & Dandys. His latest release comes on another one of our faves, Simma Black.

This EP will take you back, in a good way.

As an added bonus to this high-class release, Longplay remixes ‘Feel The Bass’ for a more U.K centric take on the original.

Simma Black releases never have a lot of fancy blurb. That’s because people know what an enormous brand the label is in House music. If you look on the Traxsource link for Harry Judda’s brand new LP on Simma Black, there is a single sentence, no flowery eulogies, nothing. Why is that? Because when you hit play you think of a Bob Marley lyric

“One good thing about music, When it hits you feel no pain”

When Harry Judda’s diverse album of House, Bass & Techno hits you, you’ll feel no pain. Just a compulsion to dance around the room to the block rockin’ beats, big basslines and funky house music grooves!!!! Go get it!!!
