OUT TODAY ON BEATPORT: KYODAI – WEEKEND

July 17, 2017 / Posted by Exploited-Admin (670)

GET IT HERE AT BEATPORT.

EXPDIGITAL155_KYODAI_WEEKEND

Kyodai and Exploited go together like bread and butter. The relationship between the Berlin dup and Shir Khan’s local label stretches back four years now, and after a slew of club smashes like ‘Music Rises Up’, ‘Sound Of The Falls’, ‘Houston In The Blind’ and this year’s ‘The Clone’, they’re back with another certified jam in the form of ‘Weekend’.

The duo’s love of ‘90s house has always been key to their sound, and they have really brought it back to the centre of what they do recently. ‘Weekend’ bursts into life with thumping kicks and hip-shaking percussion as a filtered vocal snippet builds the tension. Deft organ stabs are slowly drawn in, unfolding into an almost arpeggiated rhythmic pattern that brings the groove atop the deep, rolling bassline. Cymbal rides and snare fills pick up the pace, with a sustained string note building the drama further. Diva shrieks punctuate the sections as the filtered vocal snippet gets drenched in delay.

All of a sudden we find ourselves in the depths of a breakdown consisting of nothing more than an irresistible organ solo and teases of the vocal, the keys worked to their fullest to create hypnotic, hooky melodies and pleasingly phat chords. The beat slams back in as the organ chords loop incessantly, and a second majestic breakdown adds bubbling synths into the mix. We’re talking mid-’90s New York garage/house vibes here, with big drops and effects giving the groove a big room feel.

ANNIE MAC FROM BBC RADIO 1 PREMIERES NEW TRACK FROM BLACK JUKEBOX 19

July 17, 2017 / Posted by Exploited-Admin (670)

Already getting support from Bicep, Eats Everything, Jimpster, Loco Dice, Jamie Jones, Laurent Garnier, Tensnake, Ardalan, Waze & Odyssey, Rory Phillips, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Pete Herbert…

Shir Khan’s back with his trusty team of terrace-friendly edit specialists, alchemy masters of turning the raw ore of disco’s past into soundsystem ready house bangers for the outdoor summer parties! James Jackson & Siege are first to step up to the cauldron, throwing in one of the catchiest coastal disco tracks ever into the pot, adding some woodblock (yes!) and applying some gentle low pass filter which teases in the track beautifully. Tiptoes reworks some low slung jazz funk business into a midtempo roller, perfect for that lazy walk to the bar while you top up your margarita or daiquiri, stopping off for a chat with some sexy looking ladies / gents on the way…. Illyus & Barrientos takes us firmly through to late night action on “Bare Fruits” – instantly transporting us to some Iberian sweatbox where the party never stops; and “You Says” which takes us through back into the sunrise and into the next day of holiday partying. Remember, the fun never stops when Shir Khan’s in town.

Do yourself a favor and pick it up before this limited collector’s item sells out. Highly recommended.
