Our friends at CHAPTER 24 have selected another seven tracks with seven stories for you this month. The mood is sweet and whimsical, playful and melodic, uplifting and sensual. The kind of tracks that get under your skin, makes your heart swell and your skin tingle. Take it away chaps…
OXIA & Nicolas Masseyeff – Connivence [Diversions Music]
Marcus: This is my top track from the past month. It just ticks so many boxes for me: melancholy and yearning, epic, and with a sick bassline. Sterling work from this French connection as they launch their new label.
Love Over Entropy – Sea [SoHaSo]
Sam: The guys from SoHaSo know how to run a label – their signings, artwork and releases are always on point. This is another Love Over Entropy track I have fallen in love with. Those chords!
Roundhead (Italy) – Durante il Viaggio [Chapter 24]
Marcus: We signed this track from Italian artist Roundhead last year. A talented 24 year old, he couples analogue synths with outstanding organic elements to create a true ‘story in sound’. Both Sam and I love it and hope that it gets the recognition it deserves.
Adam Port – Working For It feat. Jennifer Touch [Keinemusik]
Sam: Claire Spooner (Just Her) introduced us to this track at Noisily Festival this year. It’s an absolute killer. A must for warm up sets.
ARTBAT – Zing [Parallel Label]
Marcus: Ukrainian duo Artur and Batish, aka ARTBAT, have impressed recently with releases on Definition:Music and Dear Deer Records. This new release on the Madrid-based Parallel Label is moody and groovy with a large dose of drama and tension.
Pete Oak – Trying Not To (Gabriel Ananda Remix) [Sincopat]
Sam: Gabriel Ananda is a continuous inspiration, with his ability to combine emotion with big, powerful tech house. The vocal from Pete Oak’s original is put to good use here. A proper sad banger.
Edu Imbernon – Bitter Fate (Fur Coat Remix) [Fayer]
Marcus: Edu’s original on his own Fayer imprint is great, but I’ve selected this Fur Coat remix which takes things into darker, more techno territory with the beautiful yet haunting vocal giving it a broody atmosphere.
