The new single, Chi Chi, by the labels favorite artists, the inimitable Phonogenic and Sasse, get played by Sven Vath, Joris Voorn, Steve Bug, Deetron amongst many more! Including remix by Wiretappeur alias Stel, Florian Kruse and Nils Nurnberg.
The next installment in our ever-growing catalogue marks the return of two of our favorite artists, the inimitable Phonogenic and Sasse. Not content with producing some of the most forward thinking and memorable pieces of electronic music in recent years as solo artists, this pair of talented Finns has decided to join forces and go for the jugular. The result is a double A-side EP consisting of two awesome productions, showcasing their mighty production credentials. We've decided to considerably up the ante this time around and have enlisted the red hot production team of Wiretappeur to handle remix duties.
Anyone familiar with either Phonogenic or Sasse will undoubtedly be aware of their unparalleled flexibility and versatility in the studio-their productions can range from deep and and emotive to funky and pounding and these new collaborative compositions provide good evidence of this. On "ChiChi" the guys lay down a solid, repetitive rhythm arrangement with some cool, percussive chord work and effective drum patterns. The highlight comes in the form of an oscillating, moving synth line that rips through the core of the track and provides its resonating, memorable hook.
On "Redemption" we find them exploring more percussive-led housey territory, using shakers, timbales and various other interesting timbres and textures to create a hypnotic, yet groovy vibe. Blending this vibe with their innate musical sense, in the form of some nifty chordal stabs and chopped vocal snippets, they deliver a perfect complement to the a-side and add considerable scope to the EP.
Last but not least, label figurehead Stel alongside our frequent co-conspirators Nils Nurnberg and Florian Kruse round the package off in perfect form, under their Wiretappeur guise. Bringing their very classy and much-in-demand deep house touch to "ChiChi" they reinterpret the original by utilizing and manipulating its key elements into a warm and emotive journey, that flows and grooves along, providing the ideal counterpoint to this excellent package.
We're delighted to present what we feel is another outstanding addition to our release catalogue. Enjoy!!
