the lehult crew goes back to beach with this v.a. full of blistering sundowners. inspired by utopian visions of northern holiday destination sylt - germanys white isle - the four tracks ooze a sense of lighthearted optimism. rave (sylt tv) is a photo-op of a track: a chilled bottle of rose at buhne 16 or a long night at rotes kliff with girls in sequin dresses. refreshing fruit, tasty fruit paints a lighter picture of the same theme. think a tasting tour of 15 different kinds of sparkling water. dj assams sandy warms things up with distant laughter and swirly synths. but stay cozy, because a change of weather is always around the corner. blueberry icetea is closing things out with a hom-age to the jolly car-train that connects sylt to the mainland - the only reasonable way to come and go!
dj assam is back on lehult with three futuristic club cuts on im still in 2 it, balancing pounding functionality and dystopian atmosphere.
shatterdome, cut deep across the whole first side of this record, is a no-prisoners-taken club workout that comes of surprisingly lightheaded with a pushing low-end and dusky athmo-stabs. lola t70 is a late night car chase on cyber-highway, reminiscing thx-1138 leaving everything behind in the classic george lucas sci-fi film: a state of floating acceleration and melancholy. say hi to everyone is signature.
liem and eddie ness are back on home turf with a club oriented four-tracker, the metronic disco fever ep. four punchy, tempo-driven house tunes that stick together like glue. produced entirely in their studio in hamburg, these tracks have that analogue, spontaneous feel and pack some serious dance floor weight
lehultsub is dedicated to dj-friendly flips, chops and spins, brought to you on a limited edition of hand-stamped white labels. the a-side introduces tony rainwater, who shows us his straight up approach to editing: find an obscure sample, speed it up, make it hit. the second track on this side, lets celebrate less hats loops the dance floor in a frenzy. tony will return for a full 12inch on lehult early 2017. the b-side, my love 4 u will neva die by lucky charms has been played by all of the lehult crew for a year already and has been requested over and over ever since. its rugged, curveball approach catches the crowd by surprise and makes for some unique dance floor moments.
its a pleasure to introduce tony rainwater, undoubtedly the most productive and creative savage weve come across recently. see usually we dont do this, lehult is a crew affair, but this guy left us no choice. being a music enthusiast, dj and dancer for a long time, tony has only most recently picked up producing his own music, yet at a stunning rate: when we first asked him for a demo, three months after he started producing, he swiftly dropped us a set of twenty-five tracks, another set of fifty more soon followed. his productions are straight rough edged, no-prisoners-taken jams, combining samples from the most far-flung corners of his eclectic music collection. his magical patchwork wild style is on full display on his debut rockberry jam ep for lehult. the a-side takes us through the lighter side of his repertoire with the title tracks slow building house groove, some dizzy medieval monk grooves on to all the world and seductive r&b on lay it on the line. on the flip operalight irresistible groove and black dream flowers provide some darker moments, before alone closes on a soft note. the vinyl version includes an extra goodie after the runouts. tony is now a fixed member of the crew already and were proud to have him and his crazy energy on the team. this wont be the last youll hear of him.
the erefora land is the first solo record by johan kaseta, lehult founding member. its a nostalgic, hazy affair where the tracks work both on a dancefloor and as the score to an imaginary super nin-tendo rpg. squelching vocal samples (hi!) and bubbling synths are reminiscent of the oldschool, synth-laden nineties game soundtracks young kaseta still cant get enough of. the erefora land is like coming across the soundtrack to earthbound after having forgotten to have ever played it - suddenly a rush of sights, sounds and smells from the past come back to you and gently pull you in.
180gr vinyl presssing, our sixth release marks the closing of a circle: lucky charmz—the man of our first release, follow me to flottbeck falls-ep—returns to deliver his second full length effort. lhlt006 is the “u still coming over? ep, a long overdue follow up to his first ep: more than anything else, its a fresh slice of summer groovers. opener faceless goat instantly delights with its majestic opening chords, only to unleash a smashing grandeur of sample fun and lustful grooves
special remarks : 180g vinyl, fullcover.
the fifth release on our lehult imprint introduces the unique sounds of yet another talent from our crew. after already appearing on our third release, the 8040 ep is dj assam’s first full length release, that showcases his deep and textured productions. in between slightly skipping grooves, atmospherical chords and thumping basslines, dj assam manages to create a atmosphere that offers just the right tension between seductive warmth and dark melancholy, between intimate proximity and distance, between uplifting groove and thoughtful introspection. it comes in a beautiful full-cover showing the deep forest of lehult, as visual counterpart to the sounds of the ep.
eddie ness and liem join forces once more to bring you lhlt007. the hardcore will never dry ep has the two producers embarking on a journey into deep machine funk and swelling subterranean soundscapes, mass tailored for sweaty clubs. all produced in their shared hardware-heaven of a studio the tracks are full of intriguing rough edges and charming imperfections, equipping the tracks with a deep textured and evolving character
a bit over a year after lehults inaugural relase, eddie nesss solo debut is - if not the ending of a full circle - a release with one foot firmly in the short history of our label and the other, already, two steps ahead in the future.
