We've got a couple of great track exclusives coming your way this week, starting tonight with the Pressure Mix of Under Pressure by Nightriders feat Lisa Shaw.

Nightriders are the Boston-based duo of Matt Johnson and Joseph Faira, and Under Pressure is their first single since 2014' s Until We Are Together EP. As for Lisa Shaw, she should need no introduction to iDJ readers by now! But for anyone who's just wandered in by accident, Ms Shaw rose to fame in the late 90s, working mostly with west coast deep house label Naked Music and recording with the likes of Miguel Migs, Andy Caldwell, Julius Papp and Fred Everything. Since then, she's gone on to forge a long-lasting career as both a featured vocalist and solo artist, carving out a niche for herself somewhere between deep/soulful house, soul jazz, chill-out/lounge and the more forward-thinking end of R&B. A niche into which Under Pressure fits just nicely!

 

The single's out on KID Recordings (the initials stand for "Keep It Deep") on Monday, with three mixes making up the full release. The Original's a laidback, meandering affair that conjures lazy Sunday afternoons in Ibiza, while the Chill Mix strips thing back even further. Our pick, though, is the Pressure Mix, which has a moodier, more haunting feel and a fatter bottom-end... and which you can hear below.

See what you think...
