Bringing the heat to our dance floors, Sicily’s DJ Vivona joins forces with much loved vocal queen, Monique Bingham, on a potent new collaboration, Over Him, Under Him. Ripe with deep afrocentric vibes and underpinned by a melancholy undertow, Over Him, Under Him sees Monique deliver a stunning performance, musing heartfelt lyrics about letting go of difficult relationship. The package is aimed firmly at the dance floor with four stellar mixes from Vivona, which blaze between afro, deep tech, hypnotic house and prismatic jazzy flavours.
Sicilian producer DJ Vivona has been a stalwart on the music scene for a number of years, running his successful Sunclock Label, known for its contemporary Afro, Deep and house output with artists such as Enoo Napa, Pablo Fierro, Mario Bianco, Radyon, Dazzle Drums and many more. Some of his own productions for the label feature acclaimed vocalists such as Lisa Shaw and Joi Cardwell.
Vivona’s profile recently rocketed after he remixed legendary King Street Sounds tracks from Kerri Chandler, Dennis Ferrer, Tiger Stripes, Mood II Swing and Barbara Tucker. His original productions on King St have also been remixed by greats such as Frankie Knuckles & Eric Kupper aka Director’s Cut, Joeski, Basti Grub, Gene Farris, Dino Lenny, Vince Watson and Rocco. In 2019, his Worldwide single on Subliminal Records was hailed as one of best tracks of the Ibiza season by Mixmag and as a result he has two more releases forthcoming on the label this year. With a brand new single with Monique Bingham for Sunclock and an upcoming song premiering on legendary Crystal Waters’ IAH Records, 2020 has already been truly productive and successful!
Monique Bingham has been responsible for some of the most poignant, soulful jazz-infused house music of the past 20 years with her distinctive voice and brilliant songwriting skills. Her career began fronting the acid jazz band Abstract Truth in 1995 with their first single Get Another Plan, which received international critical acclaim. Their follow up single, We Had a Thing in 1998 became an indisputable soulful house classic due to Matthias Heilbronn’s infectious house remix. Since then, Monique has gone on to work with some of the world’s most respected producers including Kerri Chandler, Jellybean Benitez, Karizma, Louie Vega, Todd Terry and Blackcoffee, among others. She has also worked extensively with Ralf GUM, exploding on to the South African scene with their 2012 collaboration Take Me To My Love and going on to release huge singles such as With Her Hand with the legendary Hugh Masekela, Claudette, Kissing Strangers, The Pap, Little West 12th Street and more, on Ralf’s GoGo Music label. As a result Monique has been a regular fixture on festival stages in South Africa for number of years.
