Rory said:I am delighted to announce the release of my new single ‘Ur Body’.To be honest, I’m a bit of a workaholic and I always have ideas for tracks going through my head, so I had a single out last month, this one this month, and another coming out next month, all slightly different, and with different record labels. I really enjoyed this one, as I think it has an immediate impact, and we’ve had some great feedback from other DJ’s and when I’ve played it out live, people have loved it!It’s a really fun, bouncy funk house banger, with very catchy vocals, filtered disco loops – somewhere halfway between French Touch and Studio 54. Don’t sleep on this one, as you once you start dancing to this – you won’t stop!
