The Squatters is the brain child of Oliver Portamento and Alex Powell, who have been working together for many years, not just as DJs but also as successful Promoters, Event Organisers and Producers. Taking influences from Oldskool, Hip Hop and Rave, then fusing it with today’s modern House, Electro and more experimental genres such as Dub Step, Drum n’ Bass and even Trance. By cut n’ pasting these together, adding chopped vocals and colossal breakdowns, they have created a unique big room sound that has closed the ranks between the genres ensuring a heavyweight impact on the dance floor.
Their productions and remixes have received consistent airing by BBC Radio One, Kiss100 & Capital FM, as well as support from a countless list of elite radio and club DJs. Having remixed and produced for some of the worlds’ finest Labels & graced some of the world’s finest dance floors.
The Squatters newest track releasing on August 29, ‘Higher’ sticks firmly to their signature sound with stomping 4×4 beats and drops to a rave-influenced riff before building to a bleepy, slidy crescendo, accompanied by an all important vocal tag. We’ve seen this one do damage on an unsuspecting dancefloor and it does NOT disappoint! On remix duties, HeavyFeet with a stompy House mix and Flask with the Dubstep remix.
It’s a great day for a high energy stompy House mix from the Squatters! And if you like this one be sure to head over and subscribe to their Podcast for a regular dose of their sound.
