2018 – uK house producer Henry hacking signs with vicious

By 2018, Vicious was well established (25 years young) with a strong reach into international markets. It was the year that UK based DJ and producer Henry Hacking came to the attention of the label via Henry’s manager with a cracking house cover of ‘Nasty Girl’. The track was written by Prince and originally released by Vanity 6 in the 1980s, and was very successfully covered by none other than Inaya Day many years later. Henry’s piano house driven re-work used Inaya’s vocals, so not only did the label begin a new relationship with Henry, but it also reconnected with Inaya (from MrTimothy’s “I Am The 1” and “Stand By Me” circa 2004) . David Penn provided a stunning super funky remix of the track and it reached the top five of both Traxsource and Beatport.
