Baikal Nomads is a record label focused on organic house with deep atmosphere and melodic grooves. The label’s latest release features collaborative original music from Cereus and Revibe along with stunning remixes by Veytik, Alex Doering and Timboletti.

There are two original tracks on this release that include the collaboration, plus a solo production by Cereus. Both of the original artists are from Denver, USA and Revibe is an emerging talent making his debut with this stunning release.

Cereus is making his debut on Baikal Nomads following an exquisite debut on the Suprematic record label where he showcased his downtempo blend of ethereal atmosphere and enchanting melodies.

On remix duty, Veytik is an American artist from New York whose mystical tracks have been released on respected organic house record labels ranging from Harabe to Cafe De Anatolia.

Alex Doering is a Baikal Nomads regular who provides a spine-tingling remix in the style that he has featured on other imprints such as Kosa, The Purr and trndmsk.

The last of the remixes comes from Timboletti, a renowned German artist who has been pioneering organic house since the genre’s inception and has an impressive back catalogue including music on Sol Selectas, Kindisch, Do Not Sit, 3000 Grad Records and Stil Vor Talent.

“Kula” is the collaborative original and it opens the release with rattling organic percussion and majestic pads that create an uplifting atmosphere with a soothing vibe.

“Chandra” is the solo original by Cereus and it’s a spellbinding track with sweeping synths and pulsating rhythms that are cut by rushes of sparkling melody and it unfolds with building tension.

Veytik’s remix of “Kula” drops the tempo and adds vocal chants that give the track an indigenous vibe full of psychedelic and shamanistic vibes.

Timboletti’s remix of “Kula” adds trippy synths with techy undertones that lead into the soothing synths of the original as the track moves towards the spiralling textures of the breakdown.

Alex Doering’s remix of “Chandra” adds hallucinatory vocal textures and stabbing synth chords along with a prominent snare that helps him create a dramatic remix that lifts the energy of the original.

Sisko Electrofanatik’s record label Gain Records welcomes a dark and driving peak time techno release from Marbox, which also includes a remix by Mozzy Rekorder.

Marbox is an Italian artist from Turin whose style is a fusion of explosive percussion and menacing synth lines that create hard-hitting grooves. He is making his Gain Records debut following releases on respected techno imprints such as Odd Recordings, JAM, Codex, Reload and Riot.

“Unconventional” is first of the two originals and it opens the release with a monstrous kick drum, juddering high-end percussion and a hypnotic vocal sample, which lays the foundation for sweeping dystopian synths.

Mozzy Rekorder’s remix of Unconventional works in a pulsating bassline and acid synth line, which along with the original’s brutal percussion, creates a tantalising rework.

“Green Eyes Speaking” closes the release with fast-paced percussion rhythms and a thumping kick drum that’s overlaid with the ominous tones of spine-tingling synths. Its industrial undertones and stripped-back sound design deliver a ruthless energy.

Pre order link:

Black Light Smoke shares through his forthcoming ‘Ghosts’ album an intriguing and personal way to interpret house music. The tracks are inspired by typical 90s/oldschool motifs and styles, which feature melancholic and introspective states of mind, conditions empowered by the kind of samples used: well sounding drum machine loops (hardware geeks will recognize them), a less is more approach to build the groove patterns that integrate well with other part of the tracks such as basslines, pads or synths. Scissor and Thread hosts another great composition, bearing an authentic witness of sound research and depart from the mainstream electronic music.

I found my purpose and identity in New York’s scene. House music was the soundtrack to this transformative decade in my life. There were the iconic clubs like Cielo and Output, but also the golden era of after parties – there’s nothing as beautiful as that. This LP kinda closes that chapter of my life while creating music that I feel stays true to my roots.”

Pre order link:

Watergate moves to summer season with an embracing and welcoming release made by Lehar: ‘Let People Know EP’ features a set of four outstanding productions (2 originals and 2 remixes) that will heaten the dancefloors all over the world. The title track is a genuine mixture of tech house and melodic house: an electro bassline surrounds the whole instrumental adding deepness, while the vocal and the arpeggio line add a mesmerizing sensation. Follows ‘Whispers’ which maintains that kind of melodic style, although the sound is decise and strengthened than before.
On the remix job we see the names of Luke Alessi and Mia Mendi, who opt to rearrange the title track: mr. Alessi adapts the theme into a tech house instrumental introducing an acid bassline and tribal percussions, while the Mia Mendi duo choose a mystical and introspective way to shape the sounds; their approach to the music is recognizable and help to close the EP adding style variety.
