Moon Harbour’s Orbiter series showcases label associates old and new, and now hits a third instalment in fine style with cuts from Sabb & Manu Gonzalez, Raw District, Re.You & Lazarusman and Hauswerks.
First out of the blocks are Sabb & Manu Gonzalez. The former is a Swiss producer and boss at SK Supreme and released on this label back in 2015. The latter is an Ibiza artist who has a show with Ibiza Global Radio and counts the likes of Luciano and Marco Carola as fans of his work. Together, their ‘Daydream’ track is a warm and rolling affair with a bubbling bassline that really gets you involved. The addition of some wailing diva vocals adds some dance floor intensity that makes this one a summer anthem in waiting.
Next is Raw District, a Belgian duo whose debut on Moon Harbour in 2016 showcase their edgy and stripped back style. Here they offer ‘Shame’, a deep, economical cut with crisp hits and an emotive and intense vocal line that really soars as synth ripples add colour.
Regular label associate Re.You then links with acclaimed South African vocalist Lazarusman for the absorbing ‘YAWYA’. It’s a woozy number with tumbling tribal percussion and trippy synths all complemented by the poignant vocals of Lazarusman, which are delivered with real conviction and will make for a standout moment in any set.
After releases on labels like Hot Creations and Material Series, Hauswerks then closes out the EP with no nonsense, upright house jam ‘Let It Be’. It has slick, kinetic drums that coerce you into action and smooth synths that ooze classy party vibes.
Once again then, the latest instalment in the Orbiter series packs a real punch across four essential tracks.
- Sabb, Manu Gonzalez - Daydream
- Raw District - Shame
- Re.You, Lazarusman - YAWYA
- Hauswerks - Let It Be
