Steve Parry 'Apricity'
25 April 16
As Selador reaches it’s 3rd birthday, co-founder Steve Parry makes his artist debut for the label with a track that’s set to elevate his status to the next level.
Following up the recent success of his massive ‘Flippant’ track on Bedrock should not have been an easy task but Steve has effortlessly created another accomplished peak time anthem that has already sent tongues-a-wagging amongst the lucky few who’ve managed to get their hands on a copy.
Whereas ‘Flippant’ was most definitely an ode to his love of authentic acid house, ‘Apricity’ shows off his melodic side with it’s arp-tastic lead synth doing most of the damage atop a pulsating bass and roof raising structure.
On the remix front, Brazilian Techno maestro, Victor Ruiz, weighs in with something altogether more Techno, outdoing himself in the drama department as he stretches out the lead motif over a wonderfully unpredictable arrangement. This was one of the highlights from Sasha & John Digweed’s recent reunion which says a lot more than we ever could.
Next up, Portuguese Tech House grandee, Joal returns to the label with a masterclass in remodelling as he takes us to another place entirely. Bringing new bass, strings and a touch of darkness to the party, the transformation is as imaginative as it is remarkable. Hats off.
And finally, completing this stellar line up, house music’s latest dynamic duo, Ki Creighton & Makanan of Under No Illusion fame lay down their trademark heritage house beats as foundation for the infectious arp line to flourish. A mix you can put your mortgage on.
This release has been long time in the making, crafted from over two decades of DJing experience, with quality assured and fireworks guaranteed. Watch it fly.
