First release of the year from one of our favourite up and coming labels sinnmusik. They release Georgi Barrel’s ‘Down’ EP. The EP includes two original tracks from Georgi Barrel ‘Down’ and ‘Forms of Freedom’, then backed up with a huge array of remixes of the title track from Adrian, Fasika and Whedler.
Hot stuff from Barrel with in line vibe and fresh style which has really gained sinnmusik the popularity they have deserved. In original form, ‘Down’ is lush and elastic tune with organic drums, warm chords and spaced out pads all making for an inviting and charming atmosphere. A cool vocal and fat, rasping baseline drive things along before his other original ‘Forms of Freedom’ gets much more slick, punchy and high tempo. Its still a classy, deep space affair with lots of spiral pads, but there is real sliding energy in the drums and vibes a plenty in the male vocal sample that adds another layer of depth.
As for the remixes, first is Faskia, who flips the track into a spritely, nimble footed and pumping house cut with inviting chords at its heart. Then Adrian toughens out the original with bulbous bass, a new vocal and oodles of deep house charm. Lastly, Whedler remixes into totally different territory – his withering, bubbly, multi-focussed track is uplifting and frictionless and rounds out a solid package.
