we all know that when it’s a real vibe you can’t go wrong. if you add talent and hearth to that you got gunpowder for pure bangers. and that’s exactly what we at hoga nord rekord wanted to accomplish with the sixth release of our uk 12 inch series. consequently we contacted jo howard from sunderland in the north east of england. as a producer and dj he uses the alias bird of paradise. smoking weekend is the name of the four track ep.
r&s founder renaat vandepapeliere launches a new series rv trax, to reflect the sound of his dj sets. re-invigorated and inspired by contemporary dance floor sounds, after 30+ years as the label owner and figurehead renaat succumbed to the temptation to finally, at the tender age of 60, try his own hand at rocking the crowd. renaat s sets have seen him assemble a treasure trove of unreleased music that will now find a very personal home on rv trax. emblazoned with the belgian national colours of black, yellow and red these tracks proudly flaunt their floor-filling dynamics. the first, a dance floor stormer from steve legget, remixing fellow north easterners bird of paradises original a tight punchy workout that pairs distorted 909 kicks against a high tension string part and melancholic synth pads. g-prod (aka french brothers david and nicolas gaugain) provide a balmy, motor-city style number shuffling drums underpin sunrise synth washes and euphoric melodies. buenos ayres hermetics provide a frostier mood with collider - chilly fm bells pinned against serrated percussion and swirling distortion
its ya boy cherrrrrriep (sure-eep! say it with me now), one of torontos finest purveyors of basement jackin, turn up the bpm and let the wild times flow, dance trax. taking inspiration from the time honored traditions of the american mid west, we go straight to your dome on this one with a northern take on all things booty.
