We’re back with another installment of Seven Stories from the guys at CHAPTER 24 RECORDS. You know the drill by now – Sam & Marcus pick out their top tunes of the month to share with you. As always, there are some real beauties in there. These guys never cease to impress with their exquisite taste; we know you’re going to love this months installment. Enjoy!
Solee – Ten [Parquet]
Sam: An absolutely huge tech track to kick things off this month. Truly epic and befitting of the ten year celebration of Parquet as a label from their boss Solee. Here’s to another ten.
Trikk – Proto Rhyt (Black Version) [Lossless]
Marcus: I first heard Âme play this massive banger at their all night long session at Oval Space in February and have been eagerly awaiting its release since then. Out on vinyl and digital early next month on the Berlin-based Lossless.
DJ Tennis – Divisions (Roman Flugel Remix) [Life And Death]
Sam: DJ Tennis is a hero of mine and Roman Flugel gets things just right on this one. Slow, synth heavy electronica with that trademark Tennis vocal, reminiscent of classic Depeche Mode.
Anton Dhouran – A Kind Of Light [Chapter 24]
Marcus: Anton is a young French producer based in Paris. His big break was with a release on Diynamic and we have been delighted to work with him since. He’s planning an album with us in the new year and this track, out on our recent Overcoming The Monster compilation, is a taste of what to expect.
Marc Romboy – Counting Comets (Ruede Hagelstein Remix) [Bedrock]
Sam: This track nearly knocked me for six when I first heard it. Drifty, cosmic, epic – it’s a perfect late night/sunrise piece of music. Patrice Bäumel dropped it as part of his recent standout set for our friends We Concur at The Steelyard. Great to hear these melodic vibes played to a big crowd.
Ryan Davis – Brun (Luca Bacchetti Endless Remix) [Anjunadeep]
Marcus: Another fantastic outing for us recently in London was All Day I Dream and it was nice to have the team back together with label co-founder Paul Nolan flying in from LA. Gorje Hewek and Izhevski included this unreleased Luca Bacchetti remix of Ryan Davis in their promo mix for the event – a dreamy downtempo beaut which really captures the special vibe of the day.
Pax – Reign (KatrinKa Remix) [Dialtone]
Sam: KatrinKa was almost the first artist we ever signed to Chapter 24, and we have worked together and become close friends ever since. Her productions are invariably great. Here she combines a big bass groove with some dark stabs and an emotional breakdown for a dancefloor bomb.
Chapter 24’s next release is coming very soon from Malbetrieb – his debut EP on the imprint. You can listen to it here on Soundcloud – it’s a corker of a release. Also, if you want some more Chapter 24 in your life, their next event in association with Electric Dodo is taking place 4th June at The Pickle Factory with Miss Melera, Sam Pauli, Mas Black, Alexi Merlo and Girish.
