Florida based Irish DJ and producer Ed Whitty returns to SRUR with the fantastic Knowhere which comes backed up with two top notch remixes. Ed’s last outing was with Kukulkan on our Muzika Volume 5 pack which grabbed a lot of attention on the circuit. Great to see him back, you’re gonna love this one.
The Original Mix delivers a solid tech joint throughout as chunky kicks are met with a cool shuffling rhythm section. A deep rolling bass shores up the low end adding a bit of extra tech weight to the sound. Over the top we have some very cool mesmerizing metallic synths that just hang in the air effortlessly. A real nice slice of tech for the floors here, not to be missed.
Miami, USA based DJ and producing duo Thinking Of Us aka Ivan Avila and Robert Cournoyer debut on SRUR with this fine tech fuelled remix. On the DJ front these guys certainly know how to work a crowd, they have opened for many top jocks and set the tone for many great club nights. In the studio Ivan and Robert bring their musical experiences together and create some superb tracks with a leaning towards deep and funky beats. Great to see these guys on board and hopefully we’ll see more from them in the future. The remix intros with a nice punchy kick with a subtle bassy tone trailing off at the end. Cool rhythmic percussions start to form up and set the track on its tech fuelled adventure. The bassline meanders through the sound beautifully and gives the track a slight bounce that will keep the floors happy for sure. Superb synths and FX fill out the background in a variety of shapes and colours giving this track a lot of texture that works so well in the sound. Top notch stuff.
DJ and producer Torin Lawson marks his first SRUR appearance with this quality remix. Owner of Breakfast Club Recordings, Still Play Records and Get Weird Entertainment, Torin keeps himself busy running his labels on top of DJing and working in the studio. To date he has seen a raft of releases on various labels including his own and he has worked alongside Ed Whitty, Michael Rosa, Roberto Apodaca and Chris Di Solar. Another great addition to the SRUR roster, welcome aboard. Here, the remix throws up a real smooth deep house groove complete with cool chords, punchy kicks and a crispy sharp hat sequence that rattles out a steady rhythmic flow. The chords dance through the groove in a playful manner and are soon joined by a brilliant bassline that really gets the track moving. Those hats cut through the lower sounds with ease creating a cool contrast. On the break we get treated to some deep and dubby beats as well as a short but impactful vocal. Definitely one for those late night sets here, a must have.
