#WorshipWednesday- Seinan- Lion (Original Mix)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ric78Q-LUX8&list=UUaGVqzbOskaIE251UiImDFA The UK and US has always had a strong relationship when it comes to electronic music and its culture. This can also be said for Worship Recordings as many of its artists, and most importantly the fans, are from this area of the world. Today۪s Worship Wednesday we celebrate a release from one of the UK۪s most prolific producers, Andy Graham aka Sei A, and better known to the label as Seinan. The production moniker, Seinan, consists of Graham and his now label partner, Gordon Logan. Together they released the Borrowed Roots۝ EP (WOR.17) back in 2003 on Worship Recordings. The EP consists of three strong offerings that fit the mold of what was at the apex of the Worship sound in the late 90s-early 2000s. Though it was hard to choose which track to feature, Lion۝, was finally agreed upon. Before we dissect this Worship classic lets first take a look at Andy۪s past and what he is currently up to at the moment. According to last.fm, it appears that back in 2003 is when Graham would start to see his productions being released. The Seinan duo in 2003-2004 would see distribution from Deep Freeze Recordings, Troniscole, and of course the mighty Worship. Still remaining in touch with Gordon, Andy would break from the Seinan pseudonym, and begin to release as a solo artist under the guise, Droido. Graham۪s Droido productions would consist of remixes and originals from the realm of Tech House. A notable release from this chapter would be his collaboration with fellow UK artist Milton Jackson. Milton, a UK powerhouse producer in his own right, together with Droido would release the Long Circuit EP via Troniscole. In 2008 Graham would begin to produce under the name Sei A, and is now where most of his more recent tracks are coming from. Sei A۪s music comfortably walks the line between House and Techno, with at times having a moody sensibility. The productions from Sei A have seen releases on an impressive list of labels including and not limited to Kompatk, Aus Music, Rebirth, Turbo Recordings and Soma. Together with Gordon Logan, the pair has created Seinan Music, which serves as a platform for their music and others. With producing aside, Andy has toured the US and a large portion of Europe bringing his unique sound and style as a DJ. Rewinding back to 2003, Graham and Logan۪s Lion۝ track could not fit the Worship catalog any better. Lion۝ contains a lush organic drum pattern that rolls along nicely with a tight high hat and kick. Dazzling keys and a warm organ sample take turns moving in and out of the track with a reverb۪ed vocal; classic Worship right here!

#WorshipWednesday - Rob Paine & Lady Alma - This Is The Life (Frequent Fliers Remix)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXfScQf0RDQ We are well into 2015 and especially the winter season! To help keep the good vibes rolling through the New Year and knock off that chill, the label has put together #WorshipWednesday that is of superstar proportions. As we dust off the Worship history book, we review a chapter from a gentleman whose career has soared to the highest ranks of the electronic music world. Today, we highlight the remix from Frequent Fliers aka Joey Youngman akaWolfgang Gartner! The original track was composed by label boss Rob Paine and features the vocals of Worship Recordings all-star and certainly a favorite, Lady Alma. Youngman۪s version of the original keeps the vocals but replaces the acidic bass line and organic percussions with a classic jackin۪ swing. For the remix Youngman chose to use his Frequent Fliers alias, which is a moniker that the producer had not used much during his House music glory days. At the tender age of 24 Youngman would already find himself on top of the electronic music world with his instant House classics and being the founder of Fetish Records and its sister label Jackin Tracks. Fetish would see its creation in 2004 with Jackin Tracks following its lead soon after in 2005. Festish would be home to house heavyweights such as Bryan Jones, White Collar Criminals, Mario Fabriani, and of course Joey Youngman himself. Jackin Tracks would make its mark on the House scene by releasing mostly the same artists but with a limitless production style that focused on funky jack driven House tracks. With the accolades of his labels aside, Youngman۪s solo productions would garner him much success. His first production of deeper and funkier House, that Youngman would have become known for, saw its release in 2003 with his Chicago styled hit, Luv Bump۝. The notoriety from this release would land Youngman on prestigious labels such as Om, Nightshift, and of course Worship Recordings! In the more recent part of the decade Youngman had left his funky House music tunes aside and started a new project. Youngman would take on the moniker, Wolfgang Gartner, whose production style is more on the commercial end of things. This new chapter in his career would see Joey producing main room Electro and Progressive House. The Wolfgang Gartner persona has found Yougman on mega labels like Ultra, Toolroom, Dim Mak, and Ministry of Sound. When Wolfgang is not busy producing he is working the festival circuit, playing events such as EDC, Electric Forest, Coachella, Electric Zoo, and Creamfields. Here at Worship Recordings we are very humbled to have Joey apart of the family and wish him nothing but continued success!
