Ryan Murgatroyd - Something Said (Ian Pooley Remixes)
Get Physical will end 2017 and start 2018 with two remixes packages that find first Ian Pooley, then Super Flu, rework Ryan Murgatroyd’s essential ‘Something Said’ track from the label’s latest Words Don’t Come Easy compilation.
South African Ryan Murgatroyd is a Cape Town based producer who has amassed a fine discography over the last decade. Now signed to labels like Defected and Get Physical and a regular at Hï Ibiza with Black Coffee, his ‘Something Said’ was a real standout in this year’s compilation, not least for the way its popping drums, lithe percussion and colourful melodies did such a lively dance. At its heart though were the wonderfully pained vocals, courtesy of one of South Africa’s true rising stars, who for now shall remain nameless which were layered over the top of the groove whilst a tumbling bassline helps flesh out the inventive and original sound. This original version is available on both of the remixes packages.
The first package also comes with two remixes from long time Berlin house head, Pooled Music boss and respected producer Ian Pooley. His first fine remix is a full fat house track with vamping chords injecting energy and urgency to the slithering hi hats and mid-tempo kicks. It’s a set building tune that sweeps you up and carries you along before the chords drop out and reveal a pained bassline. The dub mix removes the longing vocals to focus more on the chords and bass and result in a warm and melodic house groove that is effortlessly timeless.

Ohxalá - Sereias do Planeta Vermelho EP
Title: Sereias do Planeta Vermelho EP
Remixes by: Lemurian | MiRET | Rodrigo Gallardo
Cat #: SRMR177
Label: Ready Mix Records
December 11th 2017 (Beatport Exclusive)
December 25th 2017 (Worldwide)
Our penultimate release on Ready Mix for 2017 comes from Portuguese duo Maria and Luis, making their label debut under the “Ohxalá” moniker to present us with their latest triple tracker “Sereias do Planeta Vermelho EP”.
The title track “Sereias do Planeta Vermelho” reflects the pair’s obsession with ancient instruments and traditional sounds from Brazil, Africa, Portugal and beyond. Jungle sounds play with tribal percussion and haunting flutes, punctuated by subtle electronic touches in this hypnotic and idiosyncratic chill-out gem.
Also making his Ready Mix debut, spiritual sonic explorer and maker of “shamanic psychedelia”, Lemurian turns in a scintillating remix, making the most of the exotic parts and adding a few of his own to build a soul-stirring Deep Tech bubbler.
Second original track, “O Barulho do Gizo da Cobra” blends eastern percussion with birdsong and a Brazilian spoken word vocal to create a sumptuous and languid vibe, reminiscent of Thievery Corporation.
On remix duties, nomadic Latin producer MiRET adds a hypnotic hangdrum and some heavier percussion to suit the deepest sunset sessions.
For the final original track “Berimbal Regionau”, Ohxalá once again blend instrumentation from across the globe with somewhat darker electronic touches to create something that sounds almost like acoustic dubstep.
Supplying the final remix of the package, Chilean musician and producer Rodrigo Gallardo takes the track into a flute frenzy over potent organic rhythms and guitars.
