OUT TODAY ON BEATPORT: MENNIE – REELS REBEL
GET IT ON BEATPORT HERE.
‘Reels Rebel’ premiered by Flux:
“Mennie’s approach to producing the music involved a classic aesthetic, drawing upon vintage machines to build up his grooves. From the track structure to the way samples have been worked, you most certainly get this classic tech-house feel. There’s this vintage sheen to ‘Reels Rebel’ that reeks of class, achieved through a most capable handling of percussion and an addictive riff on the loop. A rare breath of quality in a sea of generic four-to-the-floor.”
‘Haus’ premiered by Big Shot Magazine:
“Italian house producer/Club 999 resident Mennie returns to Exploited Ghetto with the Reels Rebel EP, a smoldering new release which picks up where the Florence-based phenom’s 2015 track “Phoenix” for the label left off. Listen to a down and dirty floor mover oozing with old-school NYC house vibes.”
“It’s became Mennie’s calling card to consistently deliver dancefloor oriented grooves that surreptitiously tease, then grab, then seduce then pound the senses into disco submission. ‘Reels Rebel’ is the choice cut, pulsing with Masters At Work flavoured duck or ‘Everyday’ beats and a funk-fuelled bassline high roller. Filtered synths and crunchy and crisp beats pin it down for tinny hi-hats and whipcracking snares to trample all over. ‘Haus’ is a more subtle treat with warm, delayed synth pads, clicking syncopated beats and a deep, mellow bassline that rolls then smokes like a fat cuban cigar. It’s really quite lovely. But then you expected that anyway.”
Early support by Matthias Tanzmann, Mathias Kaden, Dusky, Audiojack, Alex Neri, Mark Farina, Huxley, GoldFFinch, Laurent Garnier, Nic Fanciulli, Lee Foss, Russoul, Claude Von Stroke, Tensnake, Magda, DJ T, Booka Shade, Adana Twins, Luna City Express, Steve Lawler, Riva Starr, Sidney Charles, Kiki, Flashmob, Christian Martin, Martin Eyerer, Sasha, And.ID, The Mekanism, David Jach, Whitesquare, Hollis P Monroe, Inland Knights, Larse…
Happy 2016 everyone. Here is something fresh for the weekend.
Italian producer Mennie is back on Exploited Ghetto. Lately, he remixed Scuba alongside Bambook on Circus Recordings as well as DJ W!ld on Flashmob LTD.
