“I’m so excited for the release of my new single ‘Streets Of Gold.’ The one took a lot of influence from the sound of deep house that I grew up loving and makes me think of the Summer! I hope it brings you good vibes too” — Digital Farm Animals
With his trademark pig helmet and signature sound, the UK artist and producer Digital Farm Animals is out to take over the dance music scene. He already has high-profile collaborations with artists such as Dua Lipa, Bebe Rexha, Alan Walker, Craig David, Anne-Marie, and KSI. His recent and forthcoming material is explosive and highly energetic, and the focus is on creating massive, feel-good hits. Performing “Don’t Play” at sold-out venues and festivals such as Ministry Of Sound, Reading Festival, The Jingle Bell Ball, and Blackpool Tower last year was a highlight of 2021 for Digital Farm Animals. His upcoming collaborations include Marshmello, Khalid, Surfaces, Tiësto, Avril Lavigne, David Guetta, Ty Dolla Sign, and more.

Kelli-Leigh is a South London singer/songwriter who has worked with the likes of Duke Dumont, Jax Jones, and Low Steppa, among others. Her inspirations stem from growing up with Whitney Houston and Prince, and after touring with Adele on her 21 album tour in 2011, she decided to step out on her own as a solo artist. During the early stages of her solo career, she was asked to vocal on tracks such as “I Got U” and “I Wanna Feel,” which went straight to #1 on the Official UK Charts. In 2017 Kelli-Leigh entered the Official UK Charts featuring on the top smash hit “More Than Friends” with James Hype. She released her debut single “Do You Wanna Be Loved Like This?” in February 2018 through her independent label Music Core, which ended up as one of Top 10 trending tracks on Shazam in the UAE and entered the Virgin Radio Dubai Hot 30 chart starting off a strong collection of releases and fan favorites. Kelli-Leigh’s voice has been streamed over half a billion times and she has made several appearances on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge.

Soul Central Announce 20 Years Of “Strings Of Life” With New Version & Label
20 years on from first dominating the Music industry with a round of era-defining anthems, Soul Central present their own label CENTRL Music – Launching with a rework of their all-time anthem “Strings Of Life.”
Soul Central is most famously known for their version of “Strings Of Life” which became a worldwide anthem and one of the most prominent songs in clubland. The duo Paul Timothy and Matt Mckillop are presently celebrating 20 years at the forefront of House Music. The track originally placed Top Ten in the UK charts and received an NMC award for extensive radio plays following its release on the highly respected Defected Records. Time Out listed the song within “The 20 Best House Tracks Ever”, receiving similar accolades from The Guardian, LA Weekly, DJ Mag, and Mixmag.
Soul Central’s brand new take on the chart-topping classic has brought the track into the modern day, whilst maintaining the old-school essence of the original. A skill few can pull off. Strings Of Life / Un Amore Supremo pacing is a credit to the duo’s experience in arranging, where every build-up creates the perfect amount of tension leading towards the euphoric piano riff that is synonymous with the heart and soul of ‘House Music’.
The release has garnered support from industry players including Gorgon City, Joseph Capriati, LF System, Honey Dijon and Paco Osuna following on from their original supporters Pete Tong, Fatboy Slim, Roger Sanchez, Sonny Fodera, LP Giobbi, Annie Mac, Carl Cox, Danny Howard, Hannah Wants, Paul Oakenfold, Sam Divine and Sarah Story.
“I’m beyond excited to share our new updated versions of one of the all-time clubland classics. Over the past two decades we have constantly evolved and remained firmly focussed on creating poignant, joyful releases that actively celebrate House music and the emotional connection it evokes.” — Timmy Vegas
The new version was first featured as the final track from Graeme Park’s Hacienda House Party during lockdown which is estimated to have engaged over 4 million listeners following their first show across digital platforms showcasing icons ranging from Moby, Danny Tenaglia, Inner City, and David Morales.
CENTRL will play host to a string of new releases from the duo as they catapult far beyond their original House roots. With new singles with E-Man from ‘It’s Yours’, Cevin Fisher, Inaya Day, and many more memorable names, the duo plans to take in a more electronic-focused vibe whilst aiming to supersede previous success.
“We have an incredible amount of music that we cannot wait to share. Over the last few years, we’ve been working to raise the bar musically and grow the brand with a whole new audience. It’s great to see so much love continuing for Soul Central and our releases. Strings Of Life / Un Amore Supremo is an important part of our journey and it’s amazing to see clubbers and DJ’s across the world in full support. We love to connect people on dancefloors and ignite sustained memories.” — Matt Mckillop
Soul Central continues to top charts, receiving a Grammy Award nomination for their collaboration with iconic vocalists Crystal Waters and Robin S. The Duo have also expanded their CENTRL Music brand to worldwide syndication, following on from their Galaxy FM Switzerland, Sweden, Ireland, and Spain show and their new residency with Select Radio – The UK’s No.1 dance music station.
2023 saw the duo sign a multiple album deal with Tru Thoughts, and launch their ‘Days Of Disco’ brand in Ibiza recently featuring alongside Faithless, Joe Goddard (Hot Chip), and Gok Wan whilst collating a run of hot new releases being scheduled. With all of this, the act shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon.
