Our Last Ep Of The Year Is A Special One As It Marks One Year Of Releasing Records For Keep It Zen So We Called On Ian Blevins Along With Remixes From Amsterdams Frits Wentink And Berlins Nick Beringer To End Our Year On A High. Ian Blevins Is An Influential Name In The Underground House Scene And Was Mentioned By Resident Advisor As One Of Ibizas Most Talented Residents. Years Of Passionately Listening To And Searching For Music, Both New And Old, Has Seen Ians Style Mature Which Has Helped Shape His Own Productions And His Mysterious Duo Al Gobi.
Ian Blevins is an influential name in the underground house scene and was mentioned by Resident Advisor as one of Ibiza's most talented residents. Years of passionately listening to and searching for music, both new and old, has seen Ian's style mature which has helped shape his own productions and his mysterious duo Al Gobi.
Blevins kicks off the EP with 'NEXT'. Lots of rugged percussion keeps the track driving against glitched vocal lines and melodic synthesizers.
‘STABBATHA' tried and tested by Blevins at his residency for 'We Love... Space, Ibiza' comes at us instrumentally with a short stubby bass sound, hearty progressive stabs and a teasing arrangement that keeps the track moving.
Frits Wentink has been killing it recently with releases on WOLF Music and Heist Recordings. His sound is somewhat special and unique which is clearly portrayed through his remix of 'NEXT'.
Nick Beringer ends the record nicely giving 'NEXT' some real house love by incorporating his familiar deep sound. Nick has produced for a list of labels including Skytrax, Morris Audio and Deso Records. We're truly honoured to have these artists join the KIZ family.

Louis Hughes (6th Sense / 1999 / Adaptation Reviews / Chicago House FM) Now then this is a piece of music! Classic sounds and phat drums make the original of Next a win win track. Stabbatha build and builds into a quality piece. Frits mix takes things all very wonky in a good way and Nicks remix is straight up peek time goodness. Back to the OG mix though for me to pick one on first listen. Good stuff! Next (Original Mix) 13 8
