PHANTOM DANCE
12" Vinyl UK 12.12.17
pierre bastien is a french legend that has collaborated with artists such as robert wyatt. jac berrocal and jaki liebezeit. to name just a few. he is also very well known for his compositions based on home-made mechanical instruments. designed and constructed by bastien himself. pure diy. using these instruments he would create a heady experimental mix incorporating poetry and some far-out music. all in all very intriguing and original indeed. needless to say when the notion of pierre bastien and versatile records potentially making a project together arose. it was a total honour! throw into the mix esteemed electro-acoustic composer eddie ladoire and now we ve really got something interesting. eddie and pierre met when they appeared on the same concert bill together and they decided to collaborate further with versatile being the platform for the fruits of this particular project. the original version of phantom dance is a beautiful piece where bastien plays a trumpet into some water blended with electronic drums and mellow organs lines. creating an otherworldly. subterranean jazz vibe for the freaks. suzanne kraft. the la native / amsterdam based producer turns the original into some mechanical broken funk vibes while rotterdam s oceanic delivers 2 fresh. reimagined versions. one for for the club with a strong afro beat feel while the other one is a slower affair for the after hours. both mixes bringing something new to the table. a truly original and interesting release from some very talented people. for those with open ears and open minds!

it’s already been 5 years since the last zombie zombie album rituels d’un nouveau monde. after which the group explored other territories by signing 2 film scores. namely loubia hamra by narimane mari and irréprochable by sébastien marnier. as well as creating the music accompanying a contemporary circus show called slow futur created by martin palisse and elsa guérin. wouldn’t these beautiful parentheses make you want to return to the sources? after 10 years at versatile records. 2017 also marks the decade anniversary of the release of their first album a land for renegades in 2007. at the time considered to be one of the 10 best albums of the year according to rough trade. livity - zombie zombie’s latest opus seems to plunge us deep into science fiction. with a cover designed by the mythic cartoonist philippe druillet. who is also the founder of the cult métal hurlant comic series. the title of the album is somewhat misleading. as one could mistakenly think of a certain dub record made at the famous island records compass point studio in the bahamas.

PELICAN LOVE EP
12" Vinyl UK 03.05.17
i discovered benoit b through his own label - banlieue records. he’s part of a new breed of young french producers who make music without any hang-ups and that are inspired by the entire history of house and techno and everything in-between. i liked the combination of club beats with a deep. super melodic approach. the 6 tracks featured here almost make up an entire album that reflects benoit’s skills and sense of production. everything is here -from ambient experiments to heavyweight club tracks and beyond. here. bear witness to the new sound of france (even though he lives in berlin!)

CITES NOMADES (LP)
12" Vinyl lp UK 04.11.16
mystery. poetry. a play of masks: artistic creation according to john cravache. his collaboration with versatile dates back to the beginning of the millennium. a childhood friend of i:cube. he is 44 years old. lives in a paris suburb. and is not a professional artist. getting involved in writing. he has been boasting his artistic and economic independence and his crafty attitude outside of the industrial system. he gave himself time to invent a personal world. wild and funny. which eventually gave birth to the album -cités nomades-. even though his influences are quite varied and avant-garde (magma. captain beefheart. tom waits). they did not really affect this unclassifiable project. poetry and mystery come before all. because john cravache is appearing masked. john cravache and nicolas chaix (i:cube) have recorded radio creations since the early 90s. in particular for chimère fm in paris. as well as numerous long improvised music sessions. at the approach of the millennium. they embarked on the creation of an album that was not completed until sixteen (!) years later. john is a poet. accomplished pianist. and registered truck driver and nicolas. a self-taught musician. have both made the realisation of -cités nomades- possible. this is not an ironic pop album. this album is simply all you want. listening will do you much good

slow futur was the name of the live soundtrack of zombie zombie for a juggling company. an add project that we decided to release some months ago. consisting in 4 tracks of 15 minutes. we were suprisingly sold out very quick. so we decided to give that record a longer life having some new mixes of one the track : hyperspace. tolouse low trax is all around the place at the moment. the amazing resident dj at salon des amareurs in dusseldorf provides a kind of sleazy remix here.that never really starts but subtlelly evolves while i:cube brings it in the dub territories. in a lush mood. enfin. gilb r provides a little reprise.putting the percussions in the front for a tropical effect.

CHAM EP (GILB R & DJ SOTOFETT VERSIONS)
12" Vinyl UK 01.06.16
this track has been in my computer since a little while when dj sotofett joined me here in amsterdam. to play an epic back to back at the school (amazing new club here). when i am doing a track. it could go to a lot of different directions as im jamming them for hours in my pipe studio. i sometimes could get lost. so i asked sotofett to join me in the studio to help to finish it. then we ended with those 2 versions of cham. which are. as often when i work with the sextags man. the result of live takes almost unedited. we also add some percussions from shadi khries and we recorded two versions of the same track within hours. one being bass driven with a lot of psychedelic noises and the other one more space-techno. our adventures continues. here is another slice of spaced out music.hope you ll enjoy.

king ghazi is shadi khries and gilbert cohen. recorded in amman / may 2014. all the music presented here is original. and has been recorded in jordan in may 2014. this project was born when i met shadi in paris. at the percussion recording sessions for acid arab. from these sessions came the idea of&#8203....exploring local music styles on the verge of disappearing. in jordan and elsewhere in the middle east. it was also an opportunity for me to meet exceptional people and wonderful artists. for 15 days. we travelled through jordan. recording local musicians. here we hear osama al khairat aka abu sayah. an exiled syrian musician who plays the yarghoul (two flutes linked together by beeswax. one plays a drone. the other the corresponding range. all while blowing continuously). i want to specially thank shermine sawalha for allowing us to record in the living room of her parents house. as well as for coordinating the whole project. without her energy and patience. this record would not be in your hands today.

stefan schwander aka harmonious thelonious is definitely not a newcomer. he has been around for a long time and has already released lots of amazingly varied music on labels such as emotional response. italic. meakusma and diskant. he’s also an integral part of the infamous duesseldorf / salon des amateurs axis that is an obvious hotbed of talent. he describes his style as -american minimalism vs. african drumming vs. european sequencing-. a heady mixture which is clearly evident on this ep though with a definite middle eastern twist. here at versatile hq we were introduced to this clutch of tracks by one of the members of acid arab and we were totally blown away. stefan has a very unique production style. fusing all of the above elements with a hint of gamelan. a dash of tweaked fm synthesis type sounds with a dose of warm ambience and finally his own singular touch on the mix. we are very happy to present you these 4 tracks to you. an essential ep from one of european music s true originals.

LA VISTE ( LP)
12" Vinyl lp FR 27.11.14
a lot of water has passed under the bridge since the release of etienne jaumet’s night music. dating from october 2009. his hypnotizing music and enchanting live performances put him directly on the map. it’s just him who is in control of his ship. he moves without complexes from his saxophone to his drum machine (his beloved tr 808) while turning knobs modulating synths. and sending his voice through an echo.la visite. etienne’s brand new album. more luminous and jazzy than its predecessor. has been composed and produced within a two month period in the versatile studio. it became a piece of introspection. mentally as well as physically. in the title track. for which flop wrote the text. we hear etienne travelling through the inside of a body. fantastic voyage style.it is always surprising to see a record taking shape. etienne would arrive at the studio without any precise idea in head. approaching his work rather intuitively. he works standing up. which brings a very different energy than being seated behind a computer polishing up every detail. he is in total mastery of his set-up. ready to capture that short-lived moment of true creation. the only use a computer has for him. is to record his experiments - afterwards being mixed by jerome caron (blackjoy).in between night music and la visite. etienne has not been lazy. not only has he done numerous collaborations (amongst others with joakim. richard pinhas. francois & the atlas mountain) and picked up djing. he has also recorded a new zombie zombie album (rituels d’un nouveau monde) with cosmic neman. as well as the soundtrack loubia hamra. and he worked with artist felicie d estienne d orves on the installation satori. at this very moment. etienne and his saxophone are still part of the tour of james holden.

M MEGAMIX (2X12 LP)
2x12" Vinyl FR 20.09.12
usually. the purpose of a piece like this is to tell other writers. music mag editors. distribution people and record shop clerks why they should like a certain release and buy. hype. review it. often these encomiums are not really honest and sometimes you even feel like attending an attempt to sell a flat tire. as for i:cubes new longplayer m megamix things are – of course! – very different. being its fifth solo album. an introduction of a man like nicolas chaix or even his biography (another popular brick of sales sheets) seems rather unsuitable. if you dont know what you should know. just use your internet search engine with any of these terms: chateau flight. versatile records. french touch. disco cubizm or parisian prodigy.

LUCIFER EN DISCOTHEQUE EP
12" Vinyl FR 29.12.11
played by sven vÄth !!!in a recent interview. i:cube mentioned how difficult it is to finish an album. he finally triumphed over the chimera and delivered a new ep – lucifer en discothèque – as a prelude to his forthcoming album (he must have fought the chimera for real!) after 15 years of an almost constant production. how can any artist possibly avoid the pitfall of repetition while re-inventing his style? cube delivers a masterly answer! as its name implies. transpiration (>perspiration< in english) is sure to make dance floors sweat around the globe. whats fascinating with these new tracks. especially transpiration. is the way chaix manages to reconcile the old with the new. his 15-year heritage of production with all the recent technological developments. this track reveals various influences. for instance todd terry. godfather of the 90s ny house. as well as sheffield rave parties of the same era yet revisited without an ounce of pomposity.

having finished recording the new zombie zombie album (out: april 2012). etienne jaumet leaves temporarily the duo to record a solo piece. as a need to find oneself again … if the word satori means spiritual awakening. the title track that offers etienne seems to describe the way to this awakening … a winding and sometimes dark path. taking inspiration from both dark disco and synth wave (etienne is particularly keen of those genres. you can listen to his new podcast for versatile records as an evidence) and also to some kind of trance… on b side. jon convex. newcomer on the dubstep / uk garage field and signed on martyns label. delivers a clearly club oriented version. by injecting syncopated beat and the funky groove unique to uk garage.

PURPLE RAW EP PART 1
12" Vinyl FR 14.04.08
loved by alex from tokyo. alex attias. ame. dixon. marcus worgull. peter kruder. roland appel. tony lionni and many more.. fabrice lig. the prince of everything electronic. is back after his very acclaimed x-slaves. he delivers the goods once again. starting off here with chapter one in a purple raw trilogy. first up is the track. based around a jerky syncopated rhythm and a very dry kick. which remains light all the way. as usual. lig’s arrangements evolve progressively before they wipe us away with their screeching pads and synthetic melodies. a great mixture of minimal techno and detroit nostalgia. no doubt. the more efficient track produced by fabrice lig and hammered by dixon. ame. alex attias. quarion… much more aggressive. bump bump is built around fat analogue sounds. or acid noises if you prefer which seem to emulate screaming animals. one is easily carried away by an animalistic groove that keeps on building from the beginning till the end. it all ends with the very funky the riff pourpre. a perfect crossover between metro area and parliament. the retro sounds sit nicely on a big fat beat. the kind which lig excels in.

PAPAIA EP

tony lionni is the new signing here at versatile. listening to papaia one cant help to think that 2008 will be the year that progressive house will make its comeback. it has been a long time since we had heard such a simple and effective kick and bass intro. the hi-hat then come in along with a small acid sound. the filter opens before the rhythm accelerates. in the middle of the track. the main melody gets dropped in. arms raise and the listener gets lost in the darkness of the night. on the b side. shuffle explores the deeper roots of lionni. the title is surely a reference to the beat. which is predominant in this track. once again the hi-hats are up infront mixed to percussive sounds. which undulate to the rhythm of the bass. making this track an essential tool. ready-to-use and be mixed into almost anything.

X - SLAVES EP
12" Vinyl FR 08.10.07
versatile are delighted with this new addition to their catalogue. a release made in belgium by detroit techno prodigy: fabrice lig. as you will notice on this new ep. the first white guys to have signed a record on kevin saundersons legendary label kms. remains faithful to the sound of motor city. a light and esoteric melody sets the tone of >x-slaves who changed the world<. the tight clap and kick drum leave room for the modulating bass. a voice similar to martin luther kings. repeats names of cities in which slavery prevailed. whilst pads stimulate the mental trip. the x slave is taken by the dancefloor. changing the world as he dances to the beat. “funk la termite” is elastic funk. binary rhythms. off-beat chords which keep the groove balanced whilst the hi-hats. like little insects. dig away at the beat. building it and deconstructing it as the sounds evolve. >the round of funky bugs< continues in the vein of creepy crawlies. here. the synths are more upfront. their acidic layering create a mixture of harmonic loops which will set all hells lose. the melodies and use of pads stay anchored in the detroit tradition. but this production fits just as well with all the current electro releases worthy of any good dancefloor

LONELY HEARTS
12" Vinyl FR 27.03.07
joakim is back.this time tough. he surprises us with a small pop jewel! but lonely hearts is not a classic pop song. it is much more joakims interpretation of one. a catchy tune. which does not want to be one. an exciting contrast between catchiness and a bleeping onslaught.on lonely hearts. cheesy sounding strings really stand out over a stoic stomping drum beat. dark singing grates against beeping keyboard playing. in the chorus a wonderful melody has a comforting effect over the very sad lyrics.in addition to the album version and the radio edit. the lonely hearts maxi also features the loving hand remix by tim goldsworthy. the musician (lcd soundsystem) and label owner (dfa records) skillfully pulls lonely hearts to the left. brushing it into a dark club track. with the distorted slow motion vocals. the funky bass run and the demanding beats. it is suddenly very close to the sound that already characterized joakims club hits are you vegetarian and come into my kitchen. and you ll also fin a joakim dub of the track. this dub keep the pop side of the song with a more catchy approach for a more dancefloor version of the original and with always the weirdness you use to find now in the joakim production !supported by tim sweeney. prins thomas

CHICAGO SUR SEINE
12" Vinyl FR 30.06.05
new opus by i:cube featuring three sharp and compelling tracks. chicago sur seine takes on early chicago house with a naive yet modern approach. reminiscent to the deep jacking imprints of the virgo four. rich in nostalgia its explores the roland juno 60 sound producing a basy and powerful drive. tokyo uno is a sensual slow motion disco tune. i: cube even brings in some melody with a balearic feel. a summer sunrise anthem

LIVITY (CD)
cd UK 01.11.17
it’s already been 5 years since the last zombie zombie album rituels d’un nouveau monde. after which the group explored other territories by signing 2 film scores. namely loubia hamra by narimane mari and irréprochable by sébastien marnier. as well as creating the music accompanying a contemporary circus show called slow futur created by martin palisse and elsa guérin. wouldn’t these beautiful parentheses make you want to return to the sources? after 10 years at versatile records. 2017 also marks the decade anniversary of the release of their first album a land for renegades in 2007. at the time considered to be one of the 10 best albums of the year according to rough trade. livity - zombie zombie’s latest opus seems to plunge us deep into science fiction. with a cover designed by the mythic cartoonist philippe druillet. who is also the founder of the cult métal hurlant comic series. the title of the album is somewhat misleading. as one could mistakenly think of a certain dub record made at the famous island records compass point studio in the bahamas.
