after demuja’s first album release „hidden paradise“ earlier this year, he follows up with a brand new ep on his own imprint ‘muja’ named -classic warrior“. the ep contains 6 classic house tracks, featuring jazzy rhodes and drifting basslines. some of the grooves will remind you of the ‘good old times’ and lean towards the 90s house sound with influences from guys like kerri chandler and ron trent, but still demuja maintains his own originality to the final finish tracks.
across the ‘hidden paradise’ lp demuja showcases his powerful and emotive production style with dusty, jazz-tinged cuts like ‘still do’, ‘hang on’, ‘you smile feat. ainy’, ‘hear that bassplayer’ and ‘my jazzy wung’ employing the producer’s signature style via soft rhodes, hooky horn samples, organic bass grooves and soaring vocal samples. ‘still do’ and ‘keep doing’ also explore a more dropped- tempo disco aesthetic on the project with funk-infused bass, infectious guitar licks and shuffled, loose drums.
demuja embarks on the thirteenth expedition into the exotic lands of palm trees and blue skies with the soulful and feel good ‘soul brother’ ep. expedition thirteen features four jams packed of playful chord patterns, dark basslines and catchy vocals.
demuja joins the madhouse roster this march with come to me, a four track ep featuring french/australian singer ladybird and a folamour remix of the title track. after various releases on the likes of nervous records, rtct records, and his own label muja, austria’s bernhard weiss aka demuja joins madhouse with some fresh material following last year’s output on house puff and freerange. the release opens with title track come to me, a rough and ready lo-fi number featuring a soulful sample, and blissful stabs of horns and strings. following is the folamour’s lost in eden remix, twisting the original into a balearic, sun-drenched vibe, contrasting the original and bringing a more funk-infused, melodious feel to things. up next is the second original on the release take which employs classic house tropes with a nod to the 90s via catchy horns and a new jersey garage/house beat. free me feat ladybird then closes the package, taking you on a silky smooth house journey, with ladybirds dazzling vocals taking center stage.
bout time we release another long-player, right? right. seven tracks of straight disco-flecked, hip-hop-laced, mpc-orchestrated pulsating house. house that s speeding down the highway at ninety in the middle of the night, house that s a packed dance floorundulatingin a heavy cloud of fog, house that s fast-forwarded time-lapse video tours through new york, tokyo, paris, london. throw gaspar noé s enter the void in the dvd player, double the playback speed, mute the audio, play vinum over it on repeat, and then some of the above will make sense, come into focus. or maybe it won t, but we know you ll have a hell of a time doing it.
