01. Stelios Vassiloudis - Reaching (Remix) [Bedrock Records | BEDSVR01]

Title // Reaching EP

1. Stelios Vassiloudis Remix
2. Stelios Vassiloudis Dub
3. Samuel L Sessions Deep Remix
4. Samuel L Sessions Jackin' Remix

From ambient soundscapes, downtempo vocal tracks and slo-mo house, through to deliciously deep house, tech-house and acid grooves, “It Is What It Is” is the supremely exciting debut artist album from Stelios Vassiloudis, out now on Bedrock. “Reaching” is house music that is deeply sophisticated, oozing spacious melodic beauty, ebbing and flowing with supreme ease. As with the whole album, it feels like a truly inspired journey to the heart, mind and soul of an extremely talented musician, producer and DJ.

These two new Stelios remixes of "Reaching" are bound to tickle your musical taste buds. The "Dub" is essentially a more club-friendly version of the album cut and stays quite true to the original's elements and overall vibe while giving it some more momentum and dynamics. With his "Remix" Stelios has given himself more artistic licence to push the boundaries, giving “Reaching” an exciting, completely different twist.

“I've been a huge fan of Samuel L Sessions’ productions for many years so I'm really excited to have him remix one of the tracks from my album. I had a good feeling that "Reaching" would be well suited to Samuel’s production style and I think the end result emphatically confirms it.”  - Stelios Vassiloudis
Sweden’s Samuel Larsson (aka Samuel L Sessions) is a globally respected techno producer whose releases on Soma, Drumcode and Music Man (as well as his own SLS, Cycle, and Klip Klap labels) are stuff of legend for many of the world’s top DJs. Here, his superb “Deep” and “Jackin’” remixes of “Reaching” are concise, powerful and extremely hypnotic. This is music to make your dancefloor erupt with energy!

03. dOP - Raver Forever (Welcome Ava EP) [Connaisseur Recordings | CNS047]

The Connaisseur family welcomes its youngest member: Ava Myra Flitsch. The daughter of Hilary and Alex Flitsch was born November 15th, 2011 and both the parents and good friends of the label celebrate this miracle with this release. All participating artists were asked to produce a very personal piece of music. The style was left up to the artists, resulting in a beautifully mixed batch of great tracks.

The intro track „Hello!“ by dOP & Masomenos features a little vocal snippet as a salutation by Masomenos’ Adrien’s son and it is an atmospheric, soundscape-ish and beat-less tool.

“Rave Forever Together”, which is the dictum inside of Hilary’s and Alex’ wedding rings, is the clubbiest track on this record. dOP created a brilliant pop-ish club moment with it, which is dominated by a lively bass-line, disco-ish cowbells and catchy vocoder vox.

In persian language, Ava means sound or melody, however in old-frisian, it means water. Knowing this, you can tell what was Patrick Chardronnet’s inspiration, when you listen to his “Source Of Life”. This track is a pure beauty, with wonderful melodies and sub-basses. Not really for the club, but an alluring listening trip.
For the last track of this selection, “Song For Ava” by Of Norway, the Olso duo played live bass and guitar to create this wonderful piece of music hitting a bull’s eye for this special release. With “I know you’re there, makes my heart sing” they created the message of this whole release and the emotions everybody wants to transport with it. With its ambient-ish atmosphere, the “Song For Ava” marks the quiet highlight of “Welcome Ava”.

Additionally to the music, all persons participating in the release wrote a personal note to welcome Ava to this world. All notes will the printed on the backside of the record.

The main idea behind this release, is to hand Ava several copies of the record in a few years, when she is old enough to understand. We will tell her, that this record was released to commemorate her birth and that it was shipped throughout the world. Perhaps people will have danced to it in Tokyo, while others will simply have listened to it in the sun in São Paulo. All of her personal copies will be hand signed by the artists. She can then give a record to people important to her on her journey of life. Much love to all of you !

05. Till von Sein feat. Fritz Kalkbrenner & Thalstroem - Blueprint (Kollektiv Turmstrasse Remix) (Reworks 1) [Suol | SUOL 036]

2011 has been a good year for Suol and of course we won't hold back in 2012. The second single "Reworks 1" of Till von Seins Album "#LTD" is first in Feb with amazing remixes by Kollektiv Turmstrasse, SLG and Erdbeerschnitzel.

The release starts with "Blueprint" featuring Fritz Kalkbrenner & Thalstroem. The track already got a lot of attention as part of the album and when we asked the remixers which track they wanna rework, 2 out of 3 decided on working with Fritz's vocals. The original is smooth and groovy ... Till in best form!

Kollektiv Turmstrasse are up next with their interpretation of Blueprint. We are happy to have the guys on board again after a while of absence. Their deliver a brilliant piece ... what we expected. A deep vibe but still driving ... great use of the vocals. The open air season awaits.

Till's friend SLG from Polands finest Pets label also picked Blueprint for his remix and gives us a hint of the polish winter. Industrial, dark pitched vocals, amazing energy and a hint of old school techno gives this one a different direction. Great!
Erdbeerschnitzel is last but not least with his remix for "Tilly's 61 Rhodes Jam". The Suol crew has been banging his track "To An End" up and down the clubs so we wanted him on board for this. Tim didn't let us down. A 99 bpm groover, nothing really where it belongs but everything just right. Warmup at its best!
