Oz Romita and Chrono join forces to deliver this stunning collaboration entitled Dollin which comes backed up with a slew of top notch remixes. Oz continues to run Sounds R Us with gusto and sources some of the finest techno grooves around from upcoming and established artists. Much more to come from SRUR so well worth keeping an eye on. Chrono aka Zoltan Salai was last seen round these parts back in June 2014 with the wonderful Pantihouse which made a fantastic splash across many floors, great to see him back again.
First up we have the Original Mix with its bright crispy intro filled with various percussions that are soon joined by a nice subtle kick and walking bass. Drum layers form up and deliver a solid techno flavour that will definitely get heads nodding. Cool echoed vocals litter the sound throughout and add smooth textures. The break dishes out cool filtered noises and gives a glimpse of things to come with some nifty trumpet work. Those trumpets make it through to the main groove and bring some funky jazz tones along for the ride. Excellent stuff from these guys you will not want to miss.
Up next we have the Zoë Xenia remix which intros with a nice punchy kick and sharp claps while cool drum patterns ease their way through. The track has a cool bounce to it that will appeal to many floors and get the booties moving. A darker element emerges as deep synth chords fade in alongside that tantalising vocal and swinging trumpets. The bass holds the sound up beautifully as it sits back allowing the mid section to thrive. A real nice blend of deep tech sounds that will fit well in many sets no doubt.
Onofrio Conte heads up the next remix and takes the track deep into techno grooves with his superb style. Last time out he delivered the brilliant Rumble which came not long after his remix on Van Czar’s Rhumba EP. On the remix we get to experience a true techno fuelled groove that will definitely grab a lot of attention. Slick percussion and drum arrangements add a slice of tribal to the sound as the bass pulsates right through the low end. Wailing trumpets glide across the track and leave behind vivid scenes that keeps the vibe alive throughout. Deep, down and dirty grooves for the late night sessions, a must have.
Jim Star deliver his Funkadelic Remix which grabs a hold of you right from the off. A quite surreal picture forms out of a noisy scene filled with white noise, distant voices and traversing trumpets. The drum section holds the rhythm beautifully as you begin to lose yourself deep in the sound. The funk and psychedelic images merge effortlessly as we are driven deeper into the groove on this sublime journey. On the break we are met with high pitched strings the melt into the sound as all around we are bombarded with a myriad of noise before the main groove returns for the duration. Top notch stuff.
P-Ben is up on remix duty next and he ramps up the pressure with his high octane take. Tight drums and sharp percussions make up the intro which is given a boost with wonderful punchy kicks and a pulsating bass that sits perfectly on the low frequency. Wailing trumpets and screaming distant voices dominate the sound throughout and give off a real techno flavour. The break reveals the trumpets in all their jazzy glory as that hypnotic bass relentlessly drives on. A definite floor filler here that will feature on many sets for sure.
Kreisel rounds up this package with a wonderfully deep, tech fuelled remix. The intro boasts nice punchy kicks that are joined by some very cool vocals and vocal effects. The track carries a mesmerizing tone that will keep a hold of you for the long haul. The track breaks to throws up a smooth acid style bassline that gives a cool characteristic to the sound as slicing chords join the party. The rhythm gathers pace with a little help from shuffling hats and a tight drum arrangement. Sharp stabby trumpets come through and take control of the sound adding a smooth house vibe. Superb stuff that is a must for any DJ’s crate.

Chrono aka Zoltan Salai returns to SRUR after a short hiatus with his ten track album entitled ‘Pantihouse’. We last saw Chrono with his collaboration with studio partner Ascaloon and their ‘Balkan Express EP’. Zoltan began his musical journey at an early age with DJing being his big focus with many gigs all over the country. He soon met up with Otto (Ascaloon) and they began to organise parties all over Serbia and they were tagged as the “new generation”, like his friend he soon found himself on the producing side and the results speak for themselves.
The album kicks off with ‘Blues feeling’ which intros with a solid, thumping kick complete with sharp hats. A strong plucky bass is unleashed alongside a brilliantly tweaked blues style vocal. Silky smooth deep vibes and the perfect intro for this sublime journey.
Next up we have the Deep Version of ‘Rail Road’ that starts life with a rhythmic percussion arrangement before a well rounded kick sets the track off. The bassline is introduced soon after and gives the sound a cool bounce to dance to. Deep house styled chords come through alongside a round of silky keys and a smooth female vocal snippet. Perfect fodder for any deeper set.
‘Flight’ continues this journey into deep tech with a very cool percussive intro with a few bass shots thrown in. We gather pace as a pumping kick enters the fray and sets the mood perfectly. A very subtle yet hugely effective deep bass pulsates through the sound as expert FX work creates varying textures along with vocal samples thrown in. Superb stuff!
Next up we have ‘Mother Road’ which stays true to the albums theme, very percussive intro that leads into a powerful stomping kick. The vocal samples are outstanding a give the track great character while a myriad of drums provide solid rhythms for the dancing feet. An infectious deep and low bass sends reverberations through the sound as the layers continue to form. Surreal atmospheres are apparent as the contrast between the basses, chords and vocal blend beautifully.
‘Shake That Ass’ goes for an all out club fuelled dance tune. Nice chunky kicks and crispy percs provide the rhythms for this pumped up deep house groove. Bright chords keep the groove flowing while the long released bass will force you to shake it. The track is complimented with an upbeat ‘shake that ass’ vocal. A definite must on those bouncier floors!
‘Slim Fit’ takes us further into tech with a cool punchy kick and sharp percussion intro which leads into a lush piano chord. Surreal sweeping pads fade through alongside some vocal samples and lead up to a smooth bit of piano play. The bass takes the track deeper as it throbs throughout the groove and is joined by a grittier companion. Stark contrasts abound here and they come together beautifully.
The Original Mix of ‘Rail Road’ sets off in classic style with cool percussions and a nice phat kick combi. The bass takes control of the track early on and dominates throughout as it wields its powerful sub sounds that will no doubt have the speakers rocking. The vocal comes in nicely and is joined by some very cool keys that give the track a dynamic edge and one that will no doubt feature in many sets.
‘Train Signal’ brings us a perfectly arranged party tune for the floors. A cool and fun bassline pulsates through the sound and will have the party people jumping for sure. An element of funk comes through in a delicious sax riff while the drum arrangements deliver a solid rhythmic workout with an offset synth adding an extra bounce to the sound. Again we see some very cool vocal samples used which really set the track up nicely and makes this a must for any box this summer.
‘Wildlife’ takes us deeper still with a fantastic low end bass doing most of the work. Tightly arranged patterns dish out smooth rhythmic vibes giving this track a big dance factor. Aside from the bass we are treated to a brilliant display of keys that give the sound a beautiful deep house groove. Lots going on here and is definitely not to be missed.
We end this sublime album with ‘Pantihouse’, slightly more laid back due to the slower BPM’s, but still packing a huge punch. Chunky kicks and sharp, crisp percussion keep the rhythms flowing as a deep throbbing bass dominates the track. The vocal sample arrangements are spot on and blend superbly with the short synth shots. The perfect ending to this journey through deep techy house and will be a definite must for you collection!

Otto Veisenberger aka Ascaloon and Zoltan Salai aka Chrono join forces with their debut on SRUR with this superb three tracker “Balkan Express EP”. Both guys hail from Subotica, Serbia where they DJ at top clubs and festivals. They have a hugely impressive back catalogue on many labels with tech house, deep house and techno being their main styles. Otto first got into music at the age of 10 when he would play records from the 70’s and 80’s. This developed into a full blown DJ career and productions soon followed. Zoltan also began his musical journey at an early age with DJing being his big focus with many gigs all over the country. He soon met up with Otto and they began to organise parties all over Serbia and they were tagged as the “new generation”, like his friend he soon found himself on the producing side and now they emerge with this stomper.
First up is “South Singer”, a techno cum deep house hybrid with all the trappings you’d expect. Nice chunky kicks and sharp hats provide a steady rhythm with a superb bassline showing early on. Cool deep chords give that house vibe with an expert display of FX on offer. A brilliant vocal sample adds texture to this top tune.
“Jungo” is up next with a full on techno flavour, real chunky kicks overlay an amazing percussion section with a huge deep bassline throbbing throughout. Classic stabs come through on the break with FX shoring up the sound. A very surreal flute riff is coupled with some great vocal samples to round off this top notch track.
“Let’s Fuck” gets right into deep tech grooves from the off, flowing rhythms on the percussions are accompanied with some groovy basslines and high pitched strings. Short vocal samples and brilliant FX are done very well here. Straight in your face tech with a bouncy vibe that will go down well in the darker rooms.
