Cinthie joins Dam Swindle’s Heist Recordings with a lush House EP, including a remix from St. David.
Cinthie has compiled a lush DJ Kicks compilation, released numerous EPs on labels such as Aus Music, runs one of Berlin’s finest record stores, Elevate Records, and tours the world fiercely, both as a DJ and with her all-new live show. Her EP for Heisthas been in the works for a long time, and ‘Music for Discotheques’ EP is a no-holds-barred, all-killer, no-filler record exploring various sides of House music.
Starting with the vocal cut, ‘Won’t u take me’, lush pads, shuffling snares and a dreamy female vocal work together to bring a warm and classy house track with a clear nod to 90’s US house with its feet firmly rooted in the present. ‘Piano heaven’ takes you on an Italo-meets-deep house excursion with a driving 909 groove, a deceptively simple bass, and keys and strings that bring this track to its full peak-time potential, already becoming one of the biggest tracks in Cinthie’s live show.
On the flip, Cinthie picks up the pace with the footwork-inspired jam ‘Masterplan’, bringing classic 808s, loopy synths and a cheeky spoken word piece together. The final track of the EP is the expertly crafted remix by Italian house maestro St. David. He’s made a dazzling rework of ‘Piano Heaven’, twisting the track into a deep and driving version that’s layered in sweeps, FX and bleeps for an altogether mesmerizing effect.
“We’re thrilled that we can share Cinthie’s music on the label and have her join the family after having played so many shows together and having spoken about doing something together for such a long time. As always, play it loud and dance, dance, dance!” – Dam Swindle
