Ten Ven’s ‘Just About’ remixed by Prospa - two of the hottest names in British dance music, and one almighty remix.
Premiered by Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1 while still on white label, and then signed to Positiva/Virgin EMI, Ten Ven’s ‘Just About’ has grown from a formidable club anthem into a bona fide crossover contender, with impressive radio and streaming plays including MistaJam’s Current Anthem at Radio 1, 10x Radio 1 plays, and a Music Week Club Chart No.1.
Championed by Annie Mac, Pete Tong, and many others, Prospa are the hotly tipped electronic music duo behind one of the freshest tracks of 2018 - ‘Prayer’. In keeping with their breakbeat-influenced sound, Prospa turn ‘Just About’ into a peak-time, disco breaks hybrid, available in both radio edit and club-destroying extended mixes.
An uplifting disco house jam, ‘Just About’ is the work of Ten Ven (aka Tom Neville), who introduced elements of house and electronic music to Dua Lipa’s music. The British producer, still anonymous at the time, first stepped out of the underground to produce two tracks (and work on several more) on Dua Lipa’s eponymous debut album back in 2017; while most recently Ten Ven’s current remix of Silk City feat. Dua Lipa’s ‘Electricity’ has picked up fantastic support. Sporting similar crossover appeal, ‘Just About’ boasts an earworm vocal, fluttering synthlines, and a killer retro piano hook.
Major support for Ten Ven’s productions (Honshu Wolf EP, ‘Turn It Up’), has come from Radio 1’s Annie Mac, Pete Tong, and DJ Target, along with industry heavyweights such as Solomun, Sasha, Skream, Gorgon City, Camelphat, Joris Voorn, Monki, Groove Armada, MJ Cole, Mixmag, Clash, Red Bull UK, Dancing Astronaut, and beyond.
With influences ranging from Chicago house and French disco, to electro and beyond, Neville first made a name for himself – at least under this guise – with releases on labels such as Greco-Roman, Noir, Partyfine, MTA, Weapons, Shadow Child’s Food, and his own imprint, When I Met You. Ten Ven’s last single ‘Otic’, a collaboration with Alex Metric, was released via Anjunadeep and hit No.1 on the Cool Cuts chart; and the pair’s follow-up, ‘Transmission 1 EP’, is a key part of Solomun’s current DJ sets.
Ten Ven recently supported Friendly Fires on tour, and has been announced for Anjunadeep’s landmark Printworks show in London (alongside Alex Metric).
