Solomun’s Diynamic label not only maintain a high standard but they’re also always keeping things fresh. This time the Hamburg house stable is unleashing a brand new series of four Various Artists Eps called “Four To The Floor” – Four EPs with four tracks each, focussing on the dance floor. We’ve gotten our hands on EP1 and we can safely say, we approve. It’s a quality EP.
It features Night Talk, Roberto Calzetta & Twin Soul, Rafael Cerato and esteble. Up first are Swiss producers Night Talk aka long-time friends Remo and Lukas with ‘Mind Games’. The track is a rich and colourful tech offering with a killer bass stab and great synth lines. It has been an inherent part of Solomun’s sets since early spring and is finally being released. “We believe that Diynamic is not only a musical but also a personal match for us. That’s why we sent the demos to Solomun,” say the pair.
Then comes the duo of Roberto Calzetta & Twin Soul, two young ambitious guys from the south of the Netherlands that have been working together since 2008. “We had a studio session on a Sunday afternoon in April, and we must say we were blessed with the inspiration that day. The whole track appeared pretty fast and spontaneous. That’s why we called the track “Bliss”. It took us three or four sessions to produce the complete track.” Their magically melodic track is a mid tempo deep house affair with organic percussion, lush synths and lazy and romantic vibes a plenty, which made Solomun’s crowd ecstatic when played in Ibiza.
Next is French DJ and producer and Nurvous, Toolroom and Cuff associate Rafael Cerato who serves up ‘Constellation’. As the name suggest it’s a deep space affair with starry skies, melancholic synth lines and punchy, infectious drums. Closing out this first EP is esteble with ‘Marlborough Sounds (feat. BeatuniQue)’. It’s a rich, harmonic and lushly melodic track with sombre strings, colourful chords and what sound like oriental hang drums all making for a vibe that perfectly fits in with the label.
This first VA EP gets the new series under way in style and shows that Diynamic has lots more talent up its sleeve. Out Monday 10th November.
