flottant releases cuts right through the misconception that floating and dancing fall at two opposite ends of the same spectrum. from a1. a minimal house cut full of an energetic tension that inevitably resolves into a sentiment of hopeful nostalgia. to a b side which floats far nearer its pulse. with b1 offering a clear feeling of resolution whilst still immersed in spacey elements that groove in a timeless rhythm. and b2 being punctuated by a more techno-driven groove that still flows amidst the floating atmosphere of the entire record. finding closure in a place of unapologetic happiness.
nice price deal !!! r-zone is a new label launched by global darkness. who is involved isn t exactly a secret. those who feel so inclined can piece the information together quite easily. it is however irrelevant to the concept of r-zone. which would like to shift the focus away from namedropping and perception based on hype around individual artists and bring it back where it belongs. in the lap of the music.
since summer 2016. ‘keep on’ has been doing the rounds in the house music community. with support from some of the biggest names on the circuit playing the track on a week-by-week basis. initially made off the cuff as a tribute to chicago’s ghetto house sound and inspired by the dc10 terrace. the track went onto become something of a monster that the young scottish producer never anticipated. after 6 months after constant requests the track will finally be publicly available. upfront high and energy drums combine with brash vocal samples to make the track a dance floor weapon for a peak time dancefloor. on the flip ‘antonio’s keys’ takes things deeper. the track works percussion into more thumping 4x4 kick drums whilst the hypnotic lead line pushes the track forward into the early hours of the morning. limited to 300 hand stamped copie
