Title: Compost Black Label # 115
Cat No: CPT 436-1
Format: 12″ / Download
Impressive assortment of floor-filling house. Maybe it’s Cocolores best remix so far, plus a great room- and breath-taken remix from Anushka (new GP / Brownswood signing) and once again a tip top smart but shoving Lukas Bohlender house mix….this game is now not over. It’s just starting off the right foot.
Robinn is clearly a name /act to discover, watch, and follow. When it comes to modern hybrids of post-dubstep, nu broken soul, eerie downbeat combined with this genuine spirit of the vocals by Nathaniel Pearn (Natural Self / Tru Thoughts) it’s soothing and challenging in one go. Check Robin’s debut album „Multiphonia“ which was released on Compost in October 2013.
„When Robinn streches his wings, `Multiphonia´is a thing of sheer beauty“ (Clash Magazine)
„Hazy, honeyed downtempo electro featuring soulful vocals from Nathaniel Pearn. It’s an enticing taster for the full album, Multiphonia.“ (METRO News / The Games Is Now Over in `Breaking tracks)
Cocolores comprises Jason Heath and Manuel Garay, two talented youngsters from Munich, currently living and working in London. Already getting love support from Maja Jane Coles, Luciano, Joakim, Ewan Pearson, Trickski and many more, their debut EP “Heart Quest” on Exploited is a blend of 90s house, with a delectable tinge of urban funkiness. Last year they released a Compost Black Label 12“. With the Inside EP on Dirt Crew Recordings they went deeper and darker to their usual sound,
Anushka, a Brighton-based duo Max Wheeler (producer) and Victoria Port (singer/songwriter) are a classic British concoction of jazz-inflected heady dance floor thrills. Maestro Gilles Peterson discovered them early enough and signed them for his Brownswood imprint. Check the awesome first two single releases.
Lukas Bohlender’s track Club Château (Black Label #94) was a surprising stunner of last year, gaining much much respect from a lot of big names. His deep production skills just perfectly nestle to Nathaniel Pearn’s moody vocals.
After a creative but very frustrating phase of combining their different musical styles (a broad variety from Drum ‘n’ Bass, to House, Techno, UK Garage and Post-Dubstep) they threw all of their initial ideas away and started from scratch. As a result, Tobi and Basti aka Heitzberg Theorem now concentrates on what’s really important to them: producing bassy, heavy and danceable UK-influenced house music.
