DJ MIX // Spacey Space – Revolver Upstairs – 08-01-201213th January 2012
Spacey Space is definitely a Suckmusic favourite. It is with great pleasure that we present his first offering for 2012. This mix was recorded 11pm-3am Sunday night. enjoy xx
It has been almost two years since Nick Coleman’s last original release. Having recently signed an album deal with Sweat It Out! with his band ‘Northbrook’, Coleman has been reinventing his sound, a sound which is less serious and lot more fun!
‘Raindance’ however is well…epic. The track took two years to finish and had been shelved by the producer who thought that there was no time and very few places for such an emotional track. This may be the case, or just the opinion of the enigmatic Coleman. Regardless, we think that this is a world class piece of music that is worthy of release.
The track features vibraphone, marimba and percussion, all of which were intricately programmed by Coleman.
Silversix’s remix is a wonderful example of a remix that compliments the original. Emotionally it is a silver lining version of the original, a stripped back, warmer take.
Being influenced by ethnic music styles, Bongo stands out with his Brazilian percussion to uplifting house music, african steel drums to swinging tech-house and italian trumpet riffs to stunning afro-stabs. Bongo’s first EP immediately got picked up by the infamous “Sweat it Out” label (Yolanda Be Cool, Act Yo Age, Ajax, Solo, Vhyce,…) and has been released on the well known “Club Sweat” compilation in april 2011.
His remixes have been been blogged across the web and got air played on Annie Mac’s BBC1 radioshow. As a result of his first EP he gained support from the likes of “Yolanda Be Cool, Solo, Round Table Knights, Mercury, Mowgli, Renaissance Man and many more…”.
His second EP will once again see daylight on Sweat it Out by the end of 2011. To say the least, Bongo is redefining african-latin music in an art-nouveau style with his productions, remixes and sets.
Our good friends at Sweat It Out! have just released Northbrook‘s debut single ‘Move Your Body‘. The single debuted into the ARIA Charts at #28 and is currently sitting at #20. Northbrook is Nick Coleman, Ryan Riback & Rachel Elberg.
Suckmusic artist Silversix jumps on board for a remix alongside Tommie Sunshine, fRew & Jeff Drake.
