With label mates Alibi on hand for the majestic ‘Skyline’ and rising star Satl on the buttons with him on ‘Life’ alongside Pouyah on vocals, this is real D&B at its finest.

Ritz takes us on a ‘Daydream’

Portuguese producer Ricardo Cardoso aka Ritz debuts on Piston Recordings with the tantalizingly seductive two tracker entitled Daydream EP. A relative newcomer on the scene Ricardo used to go by m0u53 and has seen several releases across various labels in the last couple of years. His Ritz moniker is dedicated to all things house. We know you’re gonna love this guys work, the attention to detail is stunning and the passion for house music shines through, enjoy.

Dreams is quite simply a superb slice of blissful house music with nice deep groove that will seduce you with its smooth vibes and inviting presence. A steady flowing rhythm is driven by tight drums and shuffling percussions while the groovy bassline weaves effortlessly through the track. A plethora of keys and pads dish out intricate melodies that captivate. The melodies are backed up by some sultry vocals that blend so beautifully into the sound. A fantastic construction of sounds perfectly suited to late loungy sets, a must have.

Mesh delivers a brilliant slice of deep house. It’s one of those tracks that forces you to let go on the floors, the driving nature of the track ensures this. Punchy kick drums are joined by crispy hi hats and a tight percussion arrangement. The big player though are those wonderful chords and expertly crafted arps that sit perfectly over the driving bassline. Cool vocals grace the track adding textures along with an ever building synth section. Top notch stuff you will not want to miss.

Jerry Bouthier shares Mordisco remix of ‘Yeah! (DJ Tools #1)

Continental’s own A&R and multi-tasking, all around vibe meister DJ drops his debut solo single ‘Yeah!’, the send off to his no-nonsense DJ Tools series on the label.

Pioneer of the Parisian electronic scene, long relocated to London, Jerry Bouthier joins passionately the dot between music and fashion. The resident dj of east London’s infamous and now defunct BoomBox night knows a good tune when he hears one as his Continental label’s output testifies. His celebrated dj mixes for Kitsuné, Emerald & Doreen and his own Heart & Soul series are captivating labours of love that have attracted followers the world over. His stylish upbeat dj sets, blending genres and everything else fancied by this iconoclast Frenchman, never fail to rock the party from one continent to another.

Also a sound-designer for fashion, his post-modern soundtracks for Vivienne Westwood – seamlessly merging classical into world music, punk into cosmic disco and more – have become the stuff of legends. In the studio, he produces as JBAG – his baleariscopop project with Andrea Gorgerino – together they’ve released 4 singles (inc. tropical anthem ‘Mogadisco’) and remixed Two Door Cinema Club, RÜFÜS, Ladyhawke… however it’s now time for a new recording chapter.

Jerry explains why he’s never released a record under his own name before:
“I come from a band/group background and as long as I wasn’t producing tunes strictly on my own, it didn’t seem fair to the other musicians involved in the creative process with me. That’s why we started JBAG for instance, the contribution of my musical sidekick Andrea Gorgerino is huge, it wouldn’t have made sense to release our stuff as Jerry Bouthier…
With time I’ve acquired confidence and felt I could produce some decent DJ tunes on my own, the kind of funky, housey stuff I play in my sets, nothing as musical or song-led as JBAG – it wouldn’t be fun to do the same thing. The idea of delivering a series of DJ Tools soon came to me, you know simple yet effective tracks that work the dancefloor well without fuss…
So I locked myself in the studio with a pile of old vinyl and came up with ‘Yeah!’, my first attempt at going back to house basics, fusing the soulful vocals of yesterday’s NYC dancefloors to the more underground, bassline vibe of London.”

On the remix front Barcelona duo Mordisco, takes the deep house route with a sensual chugger that’ll work its wonders in the early hours. Next another duo, Tel Aviv’s B1ZB1Z, turns out a dreamy disco reinterpretation spiced-up by a zest of indie.

Sun City – ‘Wake Up’ [lose yourself in the warm summery sounds of Sun City]

Perth electronic duo Sun City release their energetic dance cut ‘Wake Up’, giving us the second single off their forthcoming ‘Daytona EP’.
Layering dynamic analogue synths that oscillate to create fluidity throughout the track, and smokey, languid vocals, together create a sense of growth. The chorus sees the track drop into a warping, rhythmic baseline groove, coloured by distorted vocal samples.
“The story begins following a life changing event through the first verse. A time when something happens, and you feel that it can’t get any worse. But then slowly things change, the realisation sets in that there’s a choice, to stay faded or to pick yourself up and have another go. The second verse tells the story of the second half of that familiar journey, that’s full of hope and excitement ” – Sun City
‘Wake Up’ is the perfect track for putting your head down, and letting go. With a sun-drenched chorus and uplifting vocals ‘Wake Up’ will accompany carefree, summer nights and blissful days.
“The track is musically all about high energy, summer dancing and lifting you right back up to where you belong.” – Sun City

Diynamic remix Moby

diynamic

Diynamic’s sublabel 2DIY4 will be releasing an EP of Moby remixes, with four different takes from four integral members of the label family. The EP will be out digitally on December 2nd, with the vinyl release following on December 16th.

Swiss production duo Adriatique open the release with their version of ‘Wait For Me’. Preserving the original’s distinctive piano line, the pair’s subtle update uses a deep bassline and rearranges the breathy vocals for a more dancefloor facing version of the original. Their latest remix of Marc Romboy and Stephan Bodzin’s ‘Atlas’ has been a big success, hitting #1 on Beatport.
Magdalena takes on ‘Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?’; a stomping build up utilises elements of the original’s percussion over a rumbling sub bass, before a break down mid-way through reveals the vocal line.

Stimming uses a more old school build up approach for his percussive remix of ‘Natural Blues’, with a gradual rise in complexity; running at over 10 minutes, the track is a more upbeat take on the original suitable for peak time sets.

Meanwhile, Johannes Brecht’s take on the same track features the original piano motif, a grooving bass line and the vocals taking a more prominent role.

The Moby remixes EP is an original series of tasteful reimaginings of the producer’s most iconic songs from some of Diynamic’s most established artists.
