Quotes: This is the best release of the moment . top quality dancefloor music with musical touch and great rhythms. Number one in my playlist on my website. Alex Attias / Congratulations on the Drum Poet label, I bought the Kawabata 12″, jolly good! Todd Terje / Karasu is an afterhour burner Toni Rios / Once again, the very hot Drum Poet Community label has done wonders and delivered an amazing work. Ianeq aka Quarion from Geneva gives us ‘Karasu’, a pure tech-funky pearl, a really bomb alert! Very good work on BSide, ‘Play Your Part’ well represents the atmospheric vision of music by Quarion!

Info: The 4th Drumpoet Community release comes from Geneva’s Ianeq (Get Physical, A Few Among Others, Mental Groove) who goes by the name Quarion here. ”Karasu” is a very uplifting deep tune, already big with Dixon, Âme or Lexx … “Play Your Part” is a minimal funky NYC style track. Welcome along to the fourth release of the brandnew drumpoet.comMUNITY recordlabel out of Zurich. After achieving very nice reactions to the last releases and getting in touch with more like minded peeps we are all very proud to introduce you to our latest signing. It’s been delievered by an old friend from Geneva who goes by the name Ianeq and features for his release on DPC the alias Quarion. Ianeq released various tracks already and is an open-minded musiclover. His collaboration with Snax was released in spring on Get Physical and earned much attention from the DJ-elite. He also released some tracks on Mental Groove and A Few Among Others. As Enterplay he is producing techno-orientated music with Rosario from Geneva and Japanese DJ Kent from Forces of Nature. His other big passion is Hip Hop where he teams up with various MCs to provide funky and crisp MPC beats. As you can see he’s a really busy man. Beside all his production activities he is also an exellent DJ and this is also the reason how this single came along, by inviting him to come and drop a set at my monthly clubnight „loud minority“. I told him about the idea behind our label and proposed him to send us some simple but dancefloor-orientated tracks. When Ron Shiller and myself heard the tracks we were blown away. Karasu made also all our mates happy and it became a big tune among Lexx/Kawabata, Kalabrese, Àme and Dixon. It is a very uplifting and at the same time very deep tune with a nice boogie beat and an almost trancey lead. On „Play your part“ he goes more minimal and creates a subtile but very funky tune in a cool NY vibe. By playing „Karasu“ in clubs or hearing it when my friends played it, i realised how efficient it is and especially how euphoric it works on people, it’s a dance monster with a spiritual theme and yeah, it kind of makes you get higher.
