Harvey Sutherland follows up the release of his current single ‘Something In The Water’ with an extended club instrumental along with his own ‘Underwater Dub’, which strips the track back to its raw elements for a late-night excursion into the depths. The full digital single including these two new versions is out today via his label Clarity Recordings / Caroline Australia.
The previously released vocal version of the track, featuring Melbourne soul singer Jace XL, draws from a need to find hope and life among dire environmental warning signs. The track has been warmly received, including a Beat Magazine Best Single Of The Weekand featured in Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM “Essential Tracks”.
