CHAPTER 24’s Marcus and Sam’s taste in tunes is spot on. For this selection it’s like they read our minds and knew the tracks we’d been rinsing this month…in fact ‘Sam, Marcus, how have you done that? What else do you know…?’ Hmmm.
Petar Dundov – Before It All Ends [Music Man]
Marcus: My pick from Petar’s new album, ‘At The Turn Of Equilibrium’. Cosmic and organic, melancholic and euphoric in equal measure, with a killer groove and beautiful melodic flourishes. Dundov proves once again that he is the master.
Malbetrieb – Meun [Chapter 24]
Sam: We met Niels at ADE last year; he was playing at the SoHaSo showcase at a cool little bar in the centre of Amsterdam. He said he’d send us some demos when he got home that night and sure enough they arrived in our inbox just a few hours later. Meun was the first track we heard and it blew us away with its expressive white noise rhythm and dramatic sound design.
Mark Slee – Nocturne Belle (Tim Green Remix) [Manjumasi]
Marcus: Taken from the first release on Atish and Mark Slee’s Manjumasi imprint, Tim Green turns the title track into a trippy, groovy melodic number with dark stabs and soaring pads.
Nandu – Glömde feat. Tyra (Love Over Entropy Remix) [OFF Recordings]
Sam: Love Over Entropy has been ruling things since his debut appearance on Something Happening Somewhere last year, which included a Dixon retouch of his track Tonii. This is another beauty from LOE, on remix duties for Copenhagen artist Nandu.
Gundelach – Fjernsynet (Fur Coat Remix) [Cosmos Music]
Alex Niggemann – Siyawa [Last Night On Earth]
Sam: Last Night On Earth continue to fly the flag for melodic house and techno in the UK, and they’ve drafted in one of the biggest in the game here, Alex Niggemann. Siyawa offers some epic, peak time shenanigans. This sounds really great on big soundsystems.
Timujin – Bitter Earth (Remix) [Free Download]
Marcus: A Burning Man regular and one of the key players behind the White Ocean camp, we’ve been following Timujin’s excellent monthly mixes for a while now. You can just imagine that this remix, sampled from a beautiful original song called ‘On the Nature of Daylight’ by Max Richter, would be a perfect close to a sunrise set on the playa. Even better, it’s a free download on his Soundcloud page!
