- Minemalistic EP
D-Edge Records | 16.12.2016
The next release on D Edge comes from none other than the influential boss man himself, Renato Ratier, who serves up a great new cut with a remix from Acid Mondays.
Renato is the boss of D Edge in Sao Paolo and new sister club in Rio, as well as being involved in Warung, also in Brazil. He is a DJ who travels the world laying down infectious house sets, produces killer grooves for his own label and has put out two great LPs as well as many great EPs in just a few years. Now he impresses once again.
His one original is Minemalistic, a deep and shuffling house number with stripped back drums that bump in the night. The melodies are creepy and eerie and make for an unsettling vibe, and then some real soul comes from the chords that arrive at the mid point. It’s a stripped back yet emotive track with real musicality in the melodies.
Acid Mondays are an Ibiza based pair with credits on labels like Illusion and 2020 Vision and they flip the track into eight minutes of busy, bristling tech house with pressurised hits, restless drums and brain frying minimalism all making you dance. Freaky vocals add a late night sense of mischief and finish it in style.
This is another high quality EP from this always on point label and its tastemaking boss man, Renato.
