Art Department “Kisses For Roses” Remixes Out Now

art department JW

Art Department has continued to gain momentum the past year, despite the surprising departure of Jonny White’s musical partner, Lenny Glasgow. The Canadian duo split several months ago when Kenny Glasgow left to pursue other musical and business goals, although Jonny White has continued to keep the Art Department project going. Following the success of Natural Selection, he has solidified Art Department’s position at the forefront of the dance scene through a number of releases on his No. 19 Records. Most recently, this came via a remix pack for Kisses for Roses, a solid vocal track from Natural Selection (No. 19, Ultra).

The Kisses for Roses remix pack includes a re-release of the original, along with 3 remixes from heavy hitters The Martinez Brothers and Soul Clap (the latter contributed both a vocal remix and a dub mix). The Martinez Brothers deliver the upbeat jackin’ energy they are so loved for, stripping the song back and adding some thumping drums.

Soul Clap, on the other hand, puts a more mellow touch on both of their remixes, creating funky jams perfectly suited for any pool party or after hours dance floor.

In addition to this killer release, No. 19 record label in and of itself has been having an incredibly strong year; Jonny White has curated some of the finest talent, the likes of which can be heard on the label’s recent Spring Sampler compilation, including tracks from Kenny Glasgow and many more.

Kenny Glasgow Leaves Art Department

AD

Kenny Glasgow has just announced that he will no longer be a part of Art Department with Jonny White. The two have released numerous tracks and albums over the years, and collectively have provided sonic bliss to dance floors world-wide.

While this does come as a surprise to fans, perhaps this could have been predicted when Kenny Glasgow released a solo track on the No. 19 Spring Sampler earlier this year. Following up with this release on the sampler and his departure from Art Department, Glasgow intends to release a solo LP later this year through No. 19 Music.

In regards to his leaving Art Department, Glasgow had this to say:

“This kind of a project is like a creative marriage and after 5 years we just feel like there’s more we need to do in other areas. Having already released a solo album, I have felt a strong need to follow that up and explore that side of my production. Art Department is in a great place and I’m not getting any younger, now is the time” [Source – Pulse Radio]

However, just because they will no longer work together as Art Department, this doesn’t mean the musical efforts of Kenny Glasgow and Jonny White are over. The two are planning the launch of a new project, Social Experiment, while Jonny White continues the Art Department legacy as his solo project.
