MartiNils - Frankonia EP (Paul Agripa Remix) [SBTL012//SUBTIL RECORDS]
B Frankonia (Paul Agripa Remix)
The Frankonia EP is the result of the collaboration between Nils Weimann and Martin Glowacz, which started many years ago. Side A serves two different, powerful tracks. Frankonia comes with warm atmospheres and spaces. Driven by the interaction of bass and synth lines, wrapped in some subtile delayed textures. Lower has a rollin bass structure, combined with smashing vocals and surrounded by resonating marbles. Side B belongs Paul Agripa’s interpretation of Frankonia. He’s also known as a part of Ragrip and Comoji. The remix takes you on a 13 minutes trip, carried by a harmonic baseline, extended spaces and melodies. Play it loud! Early support by Cezar, Sedee, Vlad Arapasu.
Alton Miller - A Says Hello EP (Chaos in The CBD Remix) [RS028//RELEASE SUSTAIN]
COMING SOON early 06/2018
London’s Release/Sustain imprint returns this May with the ‘A Says Hello’ EP from Detroit’s Alton Miller, Chaos In The CBD step in on remix duties.
Detroit’s Alton Miller has been in the game for the past three decades coming up alongside luminaries Derrick May, Chez Damier and the late Frankie Knuckles and releasing material on the likes of Peacefrog, Moodymann’s Mahogany Music, Theo Parrish’ Sound Signature and Clone amongst others. Suffice to say, Miller stands as an extremely important figure in the history of authentic, soul-drenched house music.
Title-track ‘A Says Hello’ opens the package and as expected we’re treated to an elegant slice of house infused with a flawless musicality as multi-layered synth chords, pads and swells intertwine alongside dusty drum samples. ‘Cool But So...’ follows, embracing an Acid-Jazz feel with broken, organic rhythms, sweeping pads and warm chord progressions throughout.
Mule Musiq artists Chaos In The CBD step up to rework ‘Cool But So...’ next, adding their own spin to things via warbling Rhodes licks, bright chord sequences, a wandering bass line and an insistent organic drum groove. ‘Below The Underdog’ then rounds out the package perfectly with gritty bass hits, tension building synth swells and a rugged, bumpy drum groove.
Alton Miller’s ‘A Says Hello’ EP is out on Release/Sustain 28th May (Vinyl) and 9th July (Digi) 2018.
Claudio Ricci - Warschauer Strasse EP (Timo Maas & Basti Grub, Metodi Hristov, Kintar REMIXEX [STRD001//STRIPPED DOWN]
coming soon 06/2018
With new track 'Warschauerstrasse', Claudio Ricci has created an expansive seven minute workout of twisted synths and deep house drums. The first remix comes from long time techno heavyweight Timo Maas and the prolific and inventive Basti Grub. Their singular remix speeds up the original and layers in fluttering toms and percussive sounds as well as broad, groaning synths and the distant sound of a bustling city at rush hour. Sudam label boss and Ibiza based artist Kintar flips the track into something spacious and haunting. Eerie keys and sweeping synths keep you on edge as the rubbery techno groove rolls on into the night. Bulgarian based Metodi Hristov loves to experiment and has a distinctive techno style that gains support from the likes of Richie Hawtin, Carl Cox and Adam Beyer. In his hands the track becomes a peak time tech banger.
