Sounds R Us Recordings head honcho Oz Romita returns to the studio and delivers the superb The Music Stops Now which comes backed with four top notch remixes. His last outing was back in the Spring of 2015 when he teamed up with Chrono on the fantastic Dollin. As always Oz remains committed to bringing only the very best sounds to SRUR and once in a while it’s great to see his own work get a run out. Lots going on in the SRUR world so stay tuned for much more in 2016.
The Original Mix oozes tech vibes right from the off a sharp, slicing hats deliver a rhythmic flow to the backdrop of a sinister bass sound that lurks on the low end. A short vocal comes in alongside a superb snare fill before the thumping kicks burst through and get the track into full on mode. The layered basses offer a hypnotic ride and sit perfectly in the groove accompanied by snippets of those upbeat vocals. A driving relentless tech groove that will definitely keep the floors busy.
Roderick Fox is up first to the remix desk with his powerful remix. Last time we seen this Dutch techno wizard at SRUR was back in 2013 when he remixed Oz Romita & W&DY’s Stripe Two, which gained a great deal of support from all over. Delighted to see him return, and even more delighted at the superb remix he delivers. The intro takes us right into a techno fuelled ride as thumping kicks set the scene alongside a tight drum pattern and crispy hat arrangement. Deep low frequencies ring out and form a solid base for the track to build while cool vocal shots come through. A kind of industrial element creeps in as metallic clangy sounds are introduced. One for the tougher edged sets here that will not disappoint.
In demand and on form Canada based DJ and producer Lyle Quach is up next on the remix and yet again he delivers the goods with a rip roaring tech house vibe that will have the floors pumping. It’s been just over two years since we seen Lyle at SRUR when he teamed up with Oz to bring us a tasty Piece Of Cake. Great to have him back at the helm. The remix sets off with a powerful punchy kick drum that is joined by cool shuffling hats that get the rhythmic juices flowing. A rumbling deep low end bassline comes through and the tech grooves are let loose. The tight drums make this one a floor friendly affair along with the ultra cool vocals on offer. The break dishes out some clangy synths as a riser takes us back to the main track for the duration. Big, punchy and in your face, top notch stuff.
Turkish DJ and producer Utku Dalmaz debuts on SRUR with the first of two fantastic remixes. An aficionado of all things music, Utku is a Jazz guitarist and electronic music producer first with a passion for experimenting. He has racked up quite the impressive back catalogue in his time and he graces the decks at many top Istanbul venues. His tracks have appeared on many top labels and have gained top spots on various download portals. Great to have him on board at SRUR and we hope to see more in the future. The remix here settles into a smooth tech fuelled ride from the outset, bright hats and superb tight drums lead up to a brilliant thumping kick drum and a meandering bassline that walks across the sound effortlessly. Subtle synth stabs make a showing alongside cool vocals that make the track stand out beautifully. Tech house at its best here, just the tonic for the more upbeat floors.
Utku’s second remix is the Dub Remix and is made for those that want to lose the vocal from his first remix. The perfect track to get the party into full swing.

Head honcho at SRUR and the king of energetic techno Oz Romita joins forces with one of the most sought after DJ’s/producers on the scene, Lyle Quach, to bring in another round of high quality techno pressings. Lyle started his career in Montreal, Canada where he played many big parties which also led him to play across the USA. He is much sought after and has had collaborations with many artists all over the world and released on lots of labels during this time. Today with Oz we see the latest SRUR slice entitled “Piece Of Cake” and backed up with a couple of brilliant remixes.
The original mix is a cool blend of techno that hits maximum groove form the off with a subtle kick and a shake-that-ass percussion combo. A hypnotic bassline is prominent throughout with plenty of FX to fill up the spectrum. Simple and stylish techno with a lot of punch!
Spain based DJ/producer AngelLopez takes to the mixing desk on the first remix. Angel is another highly respected figure in the techno/house scene with an impressive list of tracks and remixes to his name. Here he takes the original theme and adds a more deep house twist while retaining that tech element. Real solid steady grooves are carved out through the kicks and percussions with a superb bassline adding the deep house touch that locks you into its grip for the duration, top notch stuff.
SRUR regular Roderick Fox is up next with his remix and he does what he does best, crafting fantastic beats and adding sublime techno flavours to everything he touches. Another solid groover with a more upbeat approach and a clever rework of the original hook. Roderick adds in quality percussions and some classic little one shot vocal samples, perfect for any floor.
