Club and Radio mixes out today, with more mixes to follow

The Ibiza season's almost upon us, which means the race is on for the title of 'vocal house anthem of the summer'. And here, NYC veteran Todd Terry makes his bid for the crown with a collaborative effort that also stars Leon Cormack & Simmelink.

The latter, for those that haven't come across them before, are UK producer Leon Cormack and Dutch/Spanish producer Archip Simmelink. They've been working together for a few years now, and here they join forces with Todd The God on a melodic house number that's got strong pop leanings, particularly in the vocal department, but manages to stay just the right side of the credible/commercial divide.

Today sees the release of the Club Mix and an accompanying Radio Edit. We're told more mixes are to follow, but in the meantime, Cold Shoulder is a solid example of the more acceptable side of commerical house, and if it gets enough DJ support could even have crossover (ie, chart) potential.
