Physh - Rain Began
The label launched this year with a release from label head honcho Matteo Rosolare, a release that was championed by the likes of Andre Crom, Kolombo & Newbie Nerdz. Riding on this wave of love and affection comes DRR02.
Physh made his presence felt at Daylight Robbery when he remixed Matteo’s track 'This Is The 80’s’. This naturally lead to his debut release coming out on the label and he does not disappoint. Rain Began is driven by the warm bassline which grooves along as the percussion dances around. The drums contrast with the melodic and spacey nature of the track. This atmospheric feel to the song is aided by the delicate vocals adding a touch of sexiness to the affair.
First up on remix duties come Swindon’s finest exports. Trav & Volta have been brewing up an absolute storm with their clean, sharp and naughty sound coming out on such fine imprints as King Street Sounds and Sleazy Deep. The boys take the track to progressive places, stretching the flow of the track with tight percussion and resonate bass. The vocals building to a peak before the tracks full potential is released as it taken down low and dirty.
With an original EP coming out on the label this year, what better time for Rishi K to do his thing for the label. San Francisco based Rishi is a man who’s sound is diverse, releases coming on labels including Deepclass Records, Seta Label and Circuit Records. Rishi gives the track a big, spacious feel. The drums set the motion as a range of sounds flow through the track. The melodies are almost soft to the touch, yet each sample adds depth to the sound. The vocals ride the beat as they come at you from all directions, creating a groove of their own.
Ali Scott has been making waves with his sound of late. The Leeds producer has been representing on labels such as Love Not Money, Funkpony Records and Neim. With an upcoming collaboration with label boss Matteo on the horizon, its a great time to have him on board. From the off this track takes it back to the old school, with driving percussion and rolling snares that lead you along until a late night groover take off. The vocal snippets bounce in and around as the melodies sneak in and out of the dark and stormy atmosphere.
