Coming off of his monster releases “Don’t Sleep” and “That Trick She Knows”, Siteholder’s
own kung fu master Billy Dalessandro returns with “Are You There?” – another bomb that will
definitely not make it through airport security undetected. Explosive kicks serenade a nasty
acid line over a signature Dalessandro-style vocal; this peak timer is no holds barred techno

New York based Clink Recording’s artist Elon makes his debut appearance for the Siteholder
team with a storming remix. Twisted effects, a unique take on the vocal, and a pulsating
bass line define this hard-hitting approach. Fearless in its pursuit and certainly without
any room for prisoners, this re-working of “Are You There” comes out of the gate sprinting
and never lets down. Another successful New York-Chicago connection has been made.

Rounding out the EP, Brian Ffar follows up his highly successful “Ballroom Hustler” EP with
a take on the single reflecting his cultivated production style. An atmospheric tech house
approach reveals well-placed synths over the drawn out vocal from the original. But don’t
assume this is child’s play, Ffar’s kick drum isn’t afraid to pummel a club system’s subs. The
avalanche inducing bass line that follows caps off this fifth Siteholder record with a very clear
message: “Are You There” is serious business.
